Transition

The whole point of the first 5 steps in our 6-step Corrosion Resistant Design process is to ensure that we have all of the information required to complete a successful transition of a production-ready technology that meets the requirements for cost, performance and reliability. 

Modeling is an important part of ensuring a smooth transition to production

  1. Choosing materials, risk reduction, minimizing testing.
  2. Building corrosion resistance into the final product, ensuring that it remains robust, and modeling its performance in chemical and corrosion environments.
  3. Process modeling for optimization of plating, anodizing, E-coating, Electrochemical Machining and other electrochemical processes.
  4. The corrosion model of a product not only ensures that its design is corrosion resistant, but also provides a well-defined baseline for future product changes and improvements as markets and regulations evolve. 
  5. Modeling is an aid to developing internal specifications, processes, and quality control tests to ensure that they address the most important production and service issues.

Our technology transition work spans a wide range of technologies, materials and industries

  • Technical management of the DoD ASETSDefense Initiative, running Workshops for design and M&P engineers, and maintaining the ASETSDefense Surface Engineering Database.  This database provides engineering data and qualification/implementation information for replacement of toxic materials and coatings in defense systems.
  • Technical management of the US/Canadian Hard Chrome Alternatives Team, which qualified HVOF thermal spray as a hard chrome alternative for aircraft landing gear and other components.  As a result of this program all new landing gear programs today use HVOF in place of hard chrome.  The data from this program is available from the ASETSDefense website and database.
  • Numerous commercial engagements involving coatings and surface treatments.
