The passion to achieve added value thru Advanced thinking.

application

Fiber is manufactured into “wedges”, saturated with white phosphorous, and encased in an artillery shell. When fired, wedges are dispersed, creating smoke to mark or obscure an area.

challenges

  • smoke duration too short
  • materials not
    bio-degradable
  • no recyclable component
  • manufacturing process too complex

services

  • manufacturing process re-engineering
  • materials engineering
    for specific applications
  • recycled and renewable materials incorporation
  • carbon footprint reduction

results

  • Improved Performance – more than doubled overall smoke time vs. previous designs
  • Renewable/Sustainable - 100% natural fibers enabled total biodegradability
  • Recyclable – materials and production waste recycled into new product
  • Lean Manufacturing – reduced costs, shortened production time, reduced waste
  • Cost – lower overall cost with improved performance and sustainability, recyclability
