Job Shops

The R&D Tax Credit can provide an immediate source of cash as well as a significant reduction to current and future years’ federal and state tax liabilities.

Precision Job Shop for Defense Hardware

This job shop develops fixtures for the defense and aerospace industries, and was tasked with increasing the strength and resilience of mass-produced weldments for military warfare. To satisfy the durability and quality requirements, the engineers conducted material evaluation to determine the optimal component composition. Soon after, custom tooling was tailored to meet the project’s specifications. The manufacturer then tested each new product component to identify structural defects, tolerance deficiencies, design flaws, critical dimensions and geometric characteristics of the independent parts. After an iterative quality assurance process, the team surpassed the client specifications with a combat-ready weldment.

Automation and Measurement Instrumentation Manufacturer

A precision manufacturer of custom measurement instrumentation and automation components was commissioned by a natural gas supplier to design, fabricate and install a single release pump. Engineers conceptualized an upgraded pump capable of communicating with the meter, and created a schematic with careful consideration to the client’s quarterly capacity requirements and challenging flow and production demands. Later, during the testing phase, a defect that caused the pump to disconnect from the valve was corrected, and a ball valve for the differential pressure gauge was installed across the strainer to accommodate existing downstream flows.

Precision Manufacturer

During a particularly difficult product design that involved lengthy trial and error, a team of precision engineers discovered a new manufacturing process for a half bore using a clamp and a custom fixture. Another challenge tasked the company’s precision machinists with improving a part that had four difficult-to-produce ports due to the double-angle seal at the top. The rigidness of the part called for internal intersection holes that required deburring. A total of 31 prototypes were analyzed and measured for variance before the team identified a design that met specifications and was suitable for PPAP submittal.
