Topic - Reproducing Mature Parts Using Contemporary Technologies
ABSTRACT: Our Customer, the US Navy under contract to THINK Technologies, took a military airplane part designed in 1959 and through our joint teaming and engineering we improved its performance, eliminated tooling, reduced the amount of parts, and dramatically reduced production time and labor cost by using contemporary design, manufacturing and testing technologies, as well as materials. Furthermore, this part was put through conventional source qualification involving ATP, SOF and QTP Testing procedures and passed on all levels.
