We offer you our 'Research Facility'

Research and Development Facility Expanding Production

We are expanding to handle greater production requirements, because we do not want to turn away any potential clients. Although we may be busier than ever, and running extra shifts - we plan to still offer the quick lead times and short production runs that have made us one of the best kept secrets in the business. Word of mouth advertising with engineers has helped us through the years. We'd like your help in keeping the engineers informed of the possibilities we can offer.

We have helped multiple companies develop their alloys and processing. Using our furnaces, pyrometry, forge press, rotary forges and rolling mill; we can quickly generate processes to make products available to test and qualify for production. We do not have the typical bureaucratic malaise that seems to infect larger companies and our clients enjoy that about working with us. 

Our clients are in the medical, marine, petroleum, nuclear, aerospace and defense sectors. We make products for some of the harshest environments on the planet. These clients, like most companies these days, are looking to shorten the development cycle. We offer flexibility in scheduling through fast tracking (concurrent operations) or crashing operations (running more pieces of equipment at once). We can help to complete process scheduling by helping put all the pieces together. While we are not a one stop shop, we are a one stop for information to make your project work and work fast. Follow on operations we can help with include: drawing, rolling, vacuum annealing or helping lineup tests with independent laboratories.

Among the many materials we have worked include: Tantalum, Nitinol, Titanium, Tungsten, Molybdenum, Molybdenum-Tungsten, Zirconium, Platinum, and even powder metal products. We have forged nuclear grade ESR and VIM/VAR stainless grades for nuclear applications, and performed ausforming on tool steels. We have developed many of our own processes in superalloy and superstainless materials. We can develop a practice for your product that will help it be lighter, stronger or more corrosion resistant.

The processes we perform have many benefits that cannot be found in other manufacturing methods. These include densification and grain size refinement, primarily though forging techniques and heating cycles. Grain refinement will also help many materials for high temperature service, allowing them a greater service life before the grain size becomes too large.

Do you need help in categorizing and writing the research report for R&D tax credit justification? Let us know, we can help with that as well. For your next research project, just remember to contact us:
