SIMULATOR FOR TESTING ROCKET ENGINES
Lockheed Martin contacted Larkin Precision requesting assistance for a critical Magnesium fixture project. Their previous suppliers were unable to work with the volatile nature of Magnesium welding. The process of welding MAGNESIUM has inherent dangerous characteristics: Very volatile, highly-flammable and hazardous.
Scope of work: Remove existing bad welds; re-weld 2” thick plate structure with 1” welds all over. The structure was then tested on site by NDT for weld integrity. Upon successful completion of this project, Lockheed Martin qualified Larkin Precision as an AS9003 Supplier.
BIONIC ARM & WRIST CONTROLS
Willow Garage, Menlo Park, Ca. and Function Engineering, Palo Alto, Ca. collaborated on an innovative Robotics Design. Larkin Precision was chosen as a Key Supplier for a group of 40 sets of close tolerance, complex, parts to be machined from Magnesium Alloy. Our Programming staff assisted in providing dimensional tolerances to support these new designs.
