Focused on advanced metals deposition technologies, we’ve strived to be nationally and internationally recognized for our contributions to these areas.
Friction Stir Welding
From 0.020 to 2+ inches thick, in materials ranging from aluminum to superalloys, we get superior results with Friction Stir Welding.
Laser Powder Deposition
From 300W to 3kW, cladding to 3-D printing, and industrial, aerospace, or bio-medical applications.
Developing both processes and equipment, and up to 1000 psi and 900C, we can help you find your solution for repair or 3-D printing.
Core Research Foci
Our newest capability brings 6-axis direct CAD-to-Motion path planning and tool changing capability for integrating multiple processes on a single platform.
AMPTECH Research Center
Using both direct write and laser processing technologies, we are looking at how the future of manufacturing is changing by creating complex parts directly from computer models.
Helping industry and the Department of Defense find ways to save millions of dollars and the environment by repairing and remanufacturing parts instead of replacing them with new ones.
