Our Story ……
Beginning in 1980 in Irving Texas, our team of engineers began working with Rare Metals, a startup company producing optical grade lenses used in Inferred Imaging technology for the US military. Our involvement was to design and build equipment not yet commercially available. Our machining equipment was used to produce germanium metal, a rare silver-colored semiconductor, milled and ground into finished lenses that were used on sophisticated US defense systems.
This led us to working in the manufacturing of high-tech vacuum systems designed and built for metallizing highly reflective surfaces suppling the aircraft manufactures from Boeing and Airbus, eventually, we supplied NASA’s shuttle program. After NASA’s launch of the fatal Columbia mission of 2003. In 2005 NASA launched the Discovery Shuttle, our team designed and built equipment for the assembly of high heat mirrors used to prevent ice from forming during prelaunch. These specially designed mirrors were used to focus a beam of light heating couplings could ice-over during prelaunch; the root cause of Columbia’s failure. The mirror systems used for the next launch of Discovery was a huge success and prevented damage to the shuttle allowing the craft to re-enter earth’s atmosphere and land safely.
Recently, at the direction of Elon Musk of Tesla, another of our team’s collaborative efforts was to help on Telas’s Model X vehicle. From design prototypes, production fixtures, to producing actual finished parts used on the interior of the Model X. The goal was to produce a lightweight solution for the original design made of metal and replace that with an esthetically pleasing and durable high-tech lightweight plastic. Our team built and assembled automation lines using robotics to produce parts being used today on Tesla’s Vehicles. This same team is the highly experienced team that builds every ARC1 CNC machine we offer today.
