Thin Metal Parts now uses U of L for analysis and processing, and for several other projects that have allowed the company to fabricate parts beyond its current capabilities and test new methods of production.

“Having a facility like UL to help us, allows us to explore business opportunities that we could not currently consider,” said Sam Miller, a process engineer with the company. “It also saves us capital by delaying purchasing of equipment until we know it is a tool that we will be able to use on new products.”
