Research & Development
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
, and electromechanical
. 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.
