Composite Materials

Almost every segment of the modern manufacturing industry works with composite materials to some degree. Versatile, durable and lightweight, composites are used in the production of everything from jet engine fan blades, and wind turbine blades to electronic equipment, recreational vehicles and household fixtures.

Aluminum Materials

Aluminum is used in nearly every industry, especially aerospace, automotive, marine and railway transport. Their lightweight durability, coupled with its thermal and aesthetic appeal makes it one of the most commonly used industrial materials.

Foam Materials

Foams are used in a wide variety of industries, including aerospace, packaging, entertainment, sporting goods, automotive, and furniture manufacturing. Foam is a popular choice for producing molds, models and prototypes, because it’s inexpensive and readily available. Utilizing foam in this capacity gives machinists and technicians the freedom to experiment with multiple layouts and options, without worrying about expense.
