Facility and Equipment

Our 94,000 SF headquarters is located in Fountain, Colorado. This facility houses our rotational liningrotational moldingadditive manufacturing, ISO Class 7 clean room, and quality control operations. Our facility consists of four buildings, which are the main manufacturing facility and office, a warehouse, a surface preparation building, and painting/bake off oven building. Within these buildings, we have a robust grouping of specialized equipment.

  • Six Integra selective laser sintering machines (15″ x 12″ x 18″)
  • Two 3-D Systems selective laser sintering machines (15″ x 12″ x 18″)
  • Ferry 430 rotational lining oven
  • Ferry 640 rotational lining oven
  • Ferry 250HD rotational lining oven
  • Four Ferry 190, 2200, 2200 & 2600 rotational molding ovens
  • Leonardo Smart rotational molding oven

Fabrication

Our welders use the following equipment to perform metal fabrication, hot-gas plastic welding, and fusion welding services:

  • Hot gas welder for thermoplastics
  • TIG Dynasty 350
  • MIG Millermatic 3500
  • Marvel Amada band saw

Machining Center

These in-house capabilities allow our skilled machinists to create tooling and provide post molding and lining machining to meet your tight tolerances, deadlines, and requirements.

  • 4-axis CNC (33” x 30” x 33”)
  • Two 5-axis CMS routers (189” x 70.9” x 47.2”)
  • Five 3-axis CNC (81” x 41” x 32”)

Prep and Post-Production

To provide you with turnkey solutions we utilize the following:

  • ISO Class 7 clean room: Our clean room allows no more than 10,000 particles of size 0.5 micron or larger per cubic foot of air. There are also separate areas for the segregation of particle-generating and non-particle-generating processes.
  • Paint booth (16′ wide x 30′ deep)
  • High temperature standalone bake off oven (13’ wide x 25’ deep)
  • Four sandblast hoods
  • Anneal bath
  • Anneal ovens
  • Material dryers

Quality

Our quality department uses many methods to uphold customer standards. Some of these tests require equipment such as: 

  • Coordinate Measurement Machine (CMM) (1000 mm c 1500 mm x 800 mm)
  • Portable Coordinate Measuring Machine (PCMM)
  • Instron tensile testing
