Research & Development

Looking at Lathe
PMF's onsite engineering department develops internal programs for continuous improvements of manufacturing methods, materials, and processes. Our research and development team takes flowforming to a new level by incorporating the process with a multitude of other manufacturing processes, such as deep drawing, rotoforming, machining, and electromechanical forming.  These processes are being developed for use with new high strength alloys, such as columbium, tantalum, titanium, and other commercially available materials.

Our research programs help reduce manufacturing and material cost for a variety of industries including aerospace, defense, micro-electronics, commercial filtration, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage.

PMF has a Master Research Agreement with Penn State University to conduct joint research with our customers and the University in such fields as materials, processes, metalworking and food science.
