Using the Modulus of Rupture Bars to Support Material Testing – A Case Study

A major defense contractor approached PremaTech for assistance with the production of protective closures for electronics equipment. The customer developed a proprietary advanced ceramic material and needed help fabricating a prototype, as well as with production.

The Solution

Modulus of rupture (MOR) bars were machined by PremaTech to support material testing. The customer’s rough blanks were taken and the inner and outer 3D surfaces were ground to the stringent specifications developed by the U.S. Department of Defense's prime contractor, offering large quantities of prototype parts during product development.

After the prototypes were approved by the customer, PremaTech ramped up to full production, offering exceptional product quality, and outstanding flexibility and responsiveness with regard to order turnaround times and quantities requested by the customer.

Finally, the customer’s extreme satisfaction, PremaTech performed 3D inspections on the component's CAD-designed surface. Those tests yielded 100% compliance with quality requirements.

The Benefits

PremaTech's ability to meet the customer's stringent specifications, conduct prototype testing and engage efficiently in R&D activities has given the customer a reliable strategic partner that can work with them at every stage of development and production.

Based on 3D inspection results, the customer trusts PremaTech implicitly to manufacture components of such high quality that the customer has eliminated acceptance testing, which has accelerated the customer's order turnaround times.
