Materials Development Capabilities 1

We also are capable of designing the microstructure for certain applications, i.e. large grain sizes for creep resistance, or controlled porosity for bone in growth or filtration. We consider not only the thermal treatments but also the upstream processes and raw materials, for example powder type for shape retention or surface finish and by the use of sacrificial pore forming material.



Materials Development Capabilities 2

We take a holistic approach to the development and fabrication of our components. Our clients can come in at any step in this process and obtain the service or product they need.
