Conversion Assistance

Do you have a complicated machined hog-out or fabrication that may lend itself to conversion to an alternate process?  Many of MetSource’s success stories are centered around converting a product from one process or multiple processes to a streamlined manufacturing process that improves the product Quality, Cost and / or Lead-time.

Material Process Selection

Do you have a part design but want a Solutions expert to advise optimal process to produce your part?  Subtle changes in part design can optimize process manufacturability to reduce cost, increase part quality and / or increase throughput.

Metallurgical Assistance

Do you want to speak to a Metallurgist regarding a part and environment to help with material selection?  Alloy selection can greatly affect overall cost and part manufacturability.
