Modern day defense challenges faced by the world require solutions that are technologically advanced. In recent years, this has led to an increased adoption of precious and rare elements – as well as materials known as being difficult to machine (like aluminum and magnesium). While this allows for new options during the development of armaments, it also presents several challenges in regard to the machining of those materials.
These challenges usually involve the following materials:
- Nickel-based superalloys – Used in a wide variety of components including submarine hulls, missiles, and assault rifles
- Nickel-aluminium bronze & copper-nickel alloys – Mainly needed for rockets, explosive detection equipment, communications and satellite systems
- Aluminum – The major component for various alloys used in electro-optical systems and navigation radars
- Rare earth elements – Used in night-vision goggles, precision-guided weapons, and communications equipment. They are also required for the extremely hard alloys you’d typically find in armored vehicles.
Our extensive collaboration with leading defense companies (both Israeli and International) has allowed us to gain the necessary expertise, and become a partner that can be relied on in regard to the machining of the most challenging defense-related applications.
