advanced machining & fabrication
Advanced machining can produce more durable parts and prototypes than the additive manufacturing (3D printing) process and can be used to shape various materials (metals, woods, plastics) for one-off or small-batch part fabrication.
Product Design & Rapid Prototyping
The ability to rapidly visualize new configurations, components and untested devices in a computer simulated environment becomes increasingly valuable when prototypes can be rapidly outputted and tested in real-world scenarios. With advances in additive manufacturing technologies (3D printers), envisioned concepts can be held, manipulated and tested, closely mimicking mass-produced parts.
Device, Materials & Impact Testing
The ability to simulate stressful impacts, dynamic forces and potentially destructive factors in both computer simulated and real-world testing environments is critical to enhancing human protection in extreme environments.
