Customer Survey

Thank you to all who responded to our October / November Customer Survey. Overwhelmingly, Part Marking was the most requested value–added process. Running a close second was Laser Welding. We’ll keep you posted on implementation and progress.

Ultrasonic Cleaning

MIL is completing design of its new Ultrasonic Cleaning line. The Blue WaveTM line incorporates two (2) 2000 watt sweep frequency ultrasonic generators and large 36” x 25” x 28” working capacity tanks. A comprehensive array of zero spaced magnetostrictive transducers offers capabilities in removing tenacious contaminants. This state-of-the-art, 100% stainless steel process line will be open for business the first quarter of 2011 and will be contained within a Class 10,000 / ISO 7 clean room environment designed to meet your critical processing and packaging needs.

Metallic Ceramic Coatings – SermatechTM

In July of 2009 SermatechTM International was acquired by Praxair Surface Technologies, and now these coating technologies / materials are available outside of the manufacture. MIL is now capable of producing the following SermetechTM coatings:

  • SermeTel WTM – Classes 1, 2, 3 and 4 (MIL-C-81751)
  • SermaSealTM 134 Ceramic-TeflonTM Coatings
  • SermeTelTM 1696 / 406

Electro-Chemical Etch Part Marking

Save time and money by allowing MIL to Electro-Chemical Part Mark your critical aerospace parts following nondestructive testing, passivation, chemical film, anodize, or any of the processes MIL performs. We can meet 2D Data matrix symbology in accordance with ATA Spec 2000, MIL-STD-130, DOD UID and other customer specific requirements. Please include your requirements on your RFQ’s. We’ll be accepting orders in January 2011.

Silkscreen Part Marking

Having moved our coatings operations to our current 37,000 sq/ft facility, MIL is expanding its Silkscreen capabilities to further compliment our anodize, chem film and painting processes. Providing camera-ready artwork at the RFQ stage will reduce cost and lead times ensuring your parts are expedited without delay.
