ROCKLEDGE, FL — February 15, 2019— Mainstream Engineering Corporation, a 33-year-old Brevard County manufacturer with a history of leading-edge research and development that has resulted in advanced, lean-manufacturing, cost-competitive products, which are all Made in the USA, has been awarded a contract from the Air Force for Rapid Grain Restructuring of Munitions Casings.
This effort is significant in that it represents a leap forward in materials processing as well as modernizing legacy defense munitions casings. This R&D effort will provide a better understanding of the capabilities of processed alloys to improve the properties of the munitions casings. These alloys can create enhanced alloy characteristics by post manufacture processing of legacy components. In addition, this effort will demonstrate the versatile and unique characteristic for manufacturing using our unique processing. The fabrication process allows for the production of parts very rapidly and at lower cost.
