Changing threats to national security, declining defense budgets, the consolidation of the defense industry, the globalization of industry, the increasing rate of change of technology, and requirements for environmentally compatible manufacturing are all contributing to new challenges being faced by defense manufacturing. Superior combat capability is achieved in part by the use of cutting-edge technologies in weapons systems.
A key manufacturing capability is the design and processing of high strength-to-weight materials for which new design concepts and processing methods are needed to reduce costs. Electronic systems must also be designed and packaged to withstand the high g-forces and vibrations in this severe environment.
Metal Impact’s capabilities support the complexity of the products and the tight tolerances within the industry.
