AForge Launches Advanced Manufacturing Branch

AForge, a leader in innovative solutions, has announced the launch of its new Advanced Manufacturing branch. This new division is set to redefine the boundaries of manufacturing with a comprehensive suite of capabilities, including advanced additive and subtractive manufacturing, supportive manufacturing processes, and state-of-the-art design and engineering services.

New State-of-the-Art Facility

AForge is excited to unveil its new state-of-the-art Advance Manufacturing Facility in Northern Virginia, built to support both Military and commercial manufacturing sectors. This facility is equipped with the latest technology and infrastructure to ensure efficient, secure, and high-quality manufacturing processes, meeting the rigorous standards required by defense and commercial clients alike.

Advanced Manufacturing Capabilities

AForge’s Advanced Manufacturing branch is equipped to handle a diverse range of manufacturing needs with the following capabilities:

  • Additive Metals: Their facilities can produce parts using a variety of metals and polymers utilizing the most technologically advances processes to date. These materials ensure high performance and durability for the most demanding applications.
  • Additive Polymers: They offer additive manufacturing with nylon, carbon fiber and glass bead composites. These materials provide exceptional strength, flexibility, and lightweight properties for a wide range of applications.
  • Subtractive Manufacturing: Their advanced subtractive manufacturing capabilities include 5-axis CNC machining, CNC lathe operations, and electrical discharge machining (EDM). These processes allow for high-precision manufacturing of complex parts.

Supportive Manufacturing Processes

In addition to our primary manufacturing capabilities, AForge’s Advanced Manufacturing branch offers several supportive processes to enhance product performance and customization:

  • Resin-Based DCPD Ballistic Armor: They provide custom form-fitting ballistic armor solutions rated up to IV+, ensuring maximum protection with advanced resin-based DCPD technology.
  • Precision Laser Welding: Their precision laser welding services offer unparalleled accuracy and strength for critical applications.

Design / Engineering Services

AForge’s team of expert engineers and designers provide comprehensive support to optimize product design and performance:

  • CAD Design, DFAM, Generative Design, and Topology Optimization: They leverage the latest design methodologies to create efficient, innovative, and manufacturable designs.
  • Simulation: Their simulation services include static finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), ensuring that designs meet performance and reliability standards.
  • 3D Scanning and Reverse Engineering: They offer high-resolution 3D scanning with data collection at a resolution of 0.02um (micron). AForge’s reverse engineering capabilities allow us to generate precise 3D CAD models from scanned data.
  • Metrology Grade Inspection and Dimensional Analysis: Using both scanned data and coordinate measuring machine (CMM) contact-based measurement, AForge provides detailed inspection and dimensional analysis to ensure the highest quality standards.

AForge’s Advanced Manufacturing branch is dedicated to pushing the limits of what is possible in manufacturing. Their state-of-the-art facilities and expert team are ready to take on the most challenging projects and deliver superior results.
