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.

Metal Forming Company

To design and fabricate a custom angle rotor, the company evaluated materials and requirements, performing calculations to meet specifications. They performed multiple tests including ultra-sonic, die penetrant, and hydrostatic testing, evaluating different types of materials and how to incorporate unique design features; the company ensured the design alternatives were in compliance with ASME code. Upon customer approval, they refined and analyzed the design components, ensuring that project specifications were met and ultimately fabricated the design.

Custom-Engineers and Manufacturers of Metal Buildings

To manufacture an SS metal building, the company needed to know the maximum wind load capability; due to the unique nature of the design, the metal building software did not accurately calculate wind loads. To overcome this, they manually calculated the building’s wind load. The new numbers were put into the software for an accurate output and they discovered that the frame required deflection limits beyond those typically identified, determining it necessary to provide increased support to the end-wall rafter, roof purlin, and vertical rigid frame, stabilizing the structure.

Metal Belt and Conveyor Design and Manufacturers

To design a conveyor-belt able to withstand extreme temperatures in food manufacturing freezers, the company started by developing a pulley system that would stay on track while moving products. They designed and evaluated multiple belt alternatives however, due to frost build up, none were effective. The company also sought to design a vacuum conveyor-belt capable of holding fragile solar cells down to the conveyor. After they evaluated multiple belt coating alternatives, finding that Xylan coating was optimal.
