Imagine if there were a place where management could go to discover ways to improve their business and the customer experience. A place where, just by visiting, the executives come away more energized and their employees become more engaged.

This place exists in your company. Likely, it’s just steps away from you – It’s the trenches of your organization – the frontlines, where the work gets done and the customer experience actually gets delivered.

A recent Wall Street Journal article shared a story just about this. Here is a synopsis. After 5 years running Uber Technologies, CEO Dara Khosrowshahi got behind the wheel himself. Using the alias ‘Dave K’ and a secondhand Tesla he purchased, the CEO made numerous trips as a rideshare driver over the next several months.

Dave K. learned much about his company during this process.

• It was difficult to sign up as a driver

• He witnessed first-hand ‘tip baiting’, which is when customers offer a large tip when placing the order, only to lower it once the food has been delivered.

• He was punished by the app for rejecting trips, though they couldn’t see drop off location or estimate pay before accepting the trip.

• Surprisingly hard to take, in his words, was the rudeness of some Uber riders. This was all part of a campaign to better understand and improve Uber’s drivers, since it was extremely difficult to sign up new drivers once life re-opened in the US post-COVID.

The campaign, code named ‘Project Boomerang’, helped spearhead one of the biggest makeovers of Uber’s business since its inception in 2009. The company woke up to the fact that everything starts with its drivers, “Having loyal drivers makes Uber more competitive and sets it up to expand into new categories”, Dara says. Interestingly, Uber’s lucrative bonuses helped bring on less loyal drivers than did their modifying areas of the business that made it difficult for the drivers to do their jobs well.

The result: Uber’s ride share revenue more than doubled in 2022, and their market segment share is estimated at 74% in the US, while its closest competitor, Lyft, has seen its market share shrink from 26% to 26% in this same time.

When was the last time you spent time sitting beside customer service employees, listening to incoming calls and watching the staff handle customer requests? Or seeing the hoops they jump through to get product out to a customer, on schedule? How about the last time you rode with a sales rep, observing their interactions with new prospects? Or shadowing a supervisor to better understand the decisions they need to make and the tools they possess to make them?

If you’re like many business leaders, it’s probably been a while since you did this. Likely you feel you don’t have the time. Just consider leaders who excel at it. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Southwest’s Herb Kelleher and Costco’s Jim Sinegal are among the very busy executives for whom visiting the trenches was a standard routine.

It makes sense. On a regular basis, visit areas where first line employees are doing their jobs. Ask questions and engage with them. You just might learn new ways to improve the business. In fact, try a campaign ‘Project Boomerang’ – it could well have results similar to Uber. In closing, God bless our troops and I wish you continued success.

First Light F-35 Helmet Test A Success

Announcements & Releases Continued

needs, contact them at: 480-833-1444 or email sales@ praxisprecision.com

Okuma America Launches New Business Segment Focused on Automation Solutions for Manufacturers

The first test of a new, lightweight F-35 helmet was successful, according to the prog ram office, a promising sign that the Pentagon can qualify and implement all three fixes to the jet’s escape system by the end of the year.

Recently, at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico, Lockheed Martin’s F-35 conducted the fir st test combining all three solutions designed to reduce the r isk of neck injury to F-35 pilots during ejection, according to spokesman Joe DellaVedova. Once the full gamut of testing is completed, hopefully by the end of the summer, the JPO can beg in implementing the two modifications to the ejection seat and issuing the new Generation III “light” helmet to the fleet, he said

The recent sled test, conducted with a 103-pound mannequin, is the latest sign that the JPO can make good on its promise to finish the three design fixes by November, allowing the military services to lift restrictions on lightweight pilots flying the F-35 Last year, Defense News first repor ted that pilots under 136 pounds were barred from flying the fifth-generation aircraft after testers discovered an increased r isk of neck damage to lightweight pilots ejecting from the plane. The US Air Force has also acknowledged an “elevated level of r isk” for pilots between 136 and 165 pounds.

Senior executives at Okuma America Corporation, a global leader and builder of computer numeric control (CNC) machine tools, controls and automation systems, are pleased to announce the launch of a new business segment created to recommend, sell and support manufacturing production line systems comprised of Okuma CNC machine tools and integrated automation technologies. The new division will be based at the Okuma America Corporation headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA.

systems including automated material loading and unloading systems, machine tending and industrial robotics, automated work piece pallet changers (APC), flexible manufacturing systems (FMS), smart manufacturing systems and beyond.

To support the new business segment, company leaders have appointed Wade Anderson as the division’s new General Manager. Mr. Anderson has worked for Okuma for 17 years in a variety of roles including engineering, technical sales, sales leadership, product management, and technology partner relationships. Additional organizational resources will be appointed to support the division’s infrastructure and customer applications.

The prototype helmet tested weighs about 4.63 pounds, approximately 6 ounces lighter than the orig inal Gen III helmet, and is designed to ease some strain on smaller pilots’ nec ks during ejection

The decision to launch the Okuma Factory Automation Division was in direct response to increased demand from manufacturers seeking automated machining systems and cells for their operations to address labor shortage issues and to increase production capacities. With the launch of this new division, Okuma will be optimally positioned to offer customers a broad range of Okuma machine tools and automation system pairings. Solutions will include both proprietary and seamlessly-integrated automation

Although the test was the fir st test of the new helmet, the JPO, Loc kheed Mar tin and seat-maker Mar tin Baker have conducted at least seven other tests with the latest version of the seat, which is equipped with two modifications designed to reduce r isk to pilots.The fixes to the ejection seat itself include a switch for lightweight pilots that will delay deployment of the main parachute, and a “head support panel,” a fabric panel sewn between the parachute r isers that will protect the pilot’s head from moving backward dur ing the parachute opening.

Landmark Solutions Receives Next Generation Award from Pat Mooney Saws

Landmark Solutions has proudly entered the Pat Mooney Saws 2022 Legacy Club, having received the Next Generation Level Award for their contribution to a recordbreaking year in Pat Mooney’s history. Dealer Development Manager, Dave McCallen, presented the award to Landmark VP, Chad Mooneyham, and Regional Sales Manager, Chris

The prog ram office has about another 10 tests planned, which will use a mix of low-, middle- and high-weight mannequins.

“This initial test had promising results and the F-35 enterpr ise is on a path to qualify the helmet . by the end of this summer,” DellaVedova told Defense News. “The lighter helmet expected to be fielded by the end of the year is in line with the seat timeframe as well.”

Industrial Production Returns to Growth After February’s Storms Subside

The Federal Reserve reported that industrial production in March rose 1.4%, returning to growth after an unseasonably stormy February knocked it down 2.6%. The report shows total industrial production rose 2.5% at an annualized rate during the first quarter of 2021 despite the losses endured in February by manufacturing, mining, and utilities companies.

tools and prepare the machine for automatic cycle. Spending less time setting up the machine and more time in production.

Motor vehicles and parts production, which fell 10% in February, rose 2.8% in March but remained depressed by a persistent shortage of semiconductors. Most durable goods indexes rose between 2% to 3%.

Like all Mazak machine tools, SYNCREX machines are backed by Mazak’s comprehensive 2-year warranty, industry-leading MPower complete customer care service and support program, and lifetime parts availability.

Hurco North America Announces Third Offering of Apprenticeship Program

The industrial production gauge includes productivity in three sectors: manufacturing, mining, and utilities. Manufacturing production (which excludes mining and utilities output) rose 2.7% in March after falling 3.7% the month before. Mining production improved 2.7%, while utility output fell 11.4% thanks to unseasonably warm March temperatures. Manufacturing output rose 1.9% at an annualized rate.

Like all models in the series, the SYNCREX 38/9 is a sliding headstock machine constructed on the Mazak High Damping Composite Casting (HDCC). This unique high rigidity base provides greater vibration damping characteristics, less thermal growth and greater part surface capabilities when compared to a cast iron base machine.

In nondurable manufacturing, the index for the chemicals industry rose 4.1%, and petroleum and coal products rose 5.7%, although neither sector has fully recovered from severe weather damage—the Federal Reserve noted that some chemicals factories remain offline thanks to damage sustained from February’s winter storms. Most nondurable goods indexes rose between 0.9%

Capacity utilization in manufacturing rose by 1.9 points, also reversing February losses.

Almost all market groups saw improvements in March, despite lingering challenges. The Federal Reserve’s index for other manufacturing, which includes publishing and logging, remained the same, but durable goods and nondurable goods indexes rose 3.0% and 2.6%, respectively.

Mazak SYNCREX machines sport the new MAZATROL SmoothSt and MAZATROL SmoothSt5 controls. Both controls feature the optional Mazak Swiss Setup Assist (MSSA) for fast and easy job setups along with the optional Mazak Dynamic Chip Control (MDCC) functionality. With Mazak’s intuitive and user friendly screens, the customer can quickly and easily touch off

If February was notable for its storminess, March was notable for its heat. The unseasonably warm month coincided with a roughly 10% drop in consumer energy products, and the 11.4% drop in utilitie s utilization was the largest recorded in the history of the index’s 48-year history.

Re-Energizing American Manufacturing: Lux Precision Manufacturing

Landmark Hosts Open House At Metzfab Industries

Field service engineers will ultimately be ambassadors for Hurco Companies, Inc.—working to provide technical support, training, and service of state-of-the-art CNC machines at customers’ facilities across the country. Continuous training on emerging technologies in CNC controls, robot integration, 5-axis machine and multi-spindle lathe installation, repair, and applications will also be provided long after completion of the apprenticeship.

“If you have a strong work ethic, like to learn how things work, like hands-on training, and want a career instead of a job, this apprenticeship is for you,”said Mark Gilmore, Service Manager for Hurco North America.

L andmark Solutions held an Open House event at Metzfab Industries in Phoenix earlier this month.

Metzfab recently installed a new OMAX 80x 5 axis waterjet, a Bystronic Tube Laser system, a Bystronic ByStar Fiber Laser with full automation, multiple large high performance press brakes, and a fully automated robotic press brake. Installing soon is a new material finishing machine also coming from the Landmark Team.

From its humble roots on a college campus, Lux Precision Manufacturing (Lux) is a premiere manufacturing company that has a mission to reenergize American manufacturing. With the unique operating location on the campus of Grand Canyon University (GCU), Lux serves the medical device, aerospace, semiconductor, and defense industries with precision machined parts. Lux, however, has a unique business model that is re-energizing American manufacturing by introducing college students to precision manufacturing and giving them an opportunity for educational immersion in manufacturing.

Metzfab’s facility was chosen due to their company growth, and the addition of several new state of the art pieces of equipment. Metzfab is always pushing technology and equipment limits in an effort to build and deliver the best parts to their customers.

In 2017, Weston Smith founded Lux out of a dorm room on the campus of Grand Canyon University originally as an electric longboard

The Landmark Solutions open house event was a success, and we are all excited to continue our long term partnership with Metzfab. Everyone attending the event were impressed with the new equipment and technology, and how this has helped Metzfab grow and diversify their business.

rental company. “I had so many students stop me and say they want one – that sparked my entrepreneurial instincts.” So, Weston started renting out electric longboards to college students. Nine months after buying an electric longboard fleet, there was a 90% battery failure rate in the electric longboards.

As a mechanical engineering student, Weston started innovating and developed a solution for the massive battery failure rate in the rental fleet; a flexible battery that uses the same battery technology found in Tesla cars. With this technology development, Weston decided to shift the business model of Lux from electric longboard rentals, to electric manufacturing. Over the course of two years, Lux Longboards launched three different board lines. The last and most innovative board line launch was the Lux LX, which was an Offroad electric longboard that went over 30mph on a range up to 19 miles.

In 2020, as industry demand grew for precision manufacturing, Lux scaled its machine shop capabilities and discontinued electric longboard manufacturing in 2022 to focus its growth in CNC machining.

In August of 2023, Lux Precision Manufacturing will be expanding to a new 12,000 sqft facility on GCU’s campus with a mixture of 16 CNC mills and lathes.

While still serving the medical device, aerospace, semiconductor, and defense industry with precision manufactured parts, Lux has partnered with GCU to impact the manufacturing workforce.

economy from both a macro and micro perspective.

From my view (of financing manufacturing equipment all around the US), the larger companies are continuing to increase machining capacity with new machine orders, but the relatively smaller companies are showing increased hesitation in recent times. This is displayed in the accompanying graph (estimated figures for display purposes).

The bad: The majority economic indicators within the manufacturing market are pointing to some degree of a recessionary period that should be felt in late Q3/early Q4.

The good: This will be the most foreseen and anticipated recession in history. If we do enter a recessionary period, it should be relatively short term (versus a standard 18-month recession) and easy to weather. If we do not enter a recession, we will more

and historically bounces back the year proceeding a recessionary period. We have the highest GPD in the world and manufacturing will always be a significant contributor.

Businesses Struggling To Hire Might Get Some ShortTerm Relief. Here’s Why.

The historically tight labor market is showing some signs of loosening as companies throttled back on job openings, according to new data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The number of job openings plummeted below 10 million at the end of February for the first time since May 2021. Despite a surge in “loud layoffs” for prominent companies, the data suggests companies are being more cautious about hiring rather than cutting jobs at this point. The layoff rate actually inched down in February to 1%, compared to 1.1% in January. The quit rate ticked up

to 2.6%, suggesting turnover remains a challenge.

Add it all up and the result is more mixed signals for employers already coping with significant uncertainty on several fronts. But even a slight loosening of the labor market could help businesses that have been struggling to hire workers since the pandemic recovery ramped up.

Of course, it should be noted that any relief is relative to the frantic hiring pace of the past two years. Experts still project companies will face long-term hiring challenges due to the nation’s shifting demographics.

A Federal Reserve survey of nearly 8,000 small businesses found the top operational challenge was hiring or retaining qualified staff, ahead of growing sales and reaching new customers. About 40% of businesses said they attempted to hire new workers and it was very difficult — far more than the 27% of businesses that said the same thing in 2018.

Overall, about 72% of firms facing hiring challenges said they had too few applicants, while 62% said the applicants they did get lacked job-specific skills or experience.

The historically tight labor market, brought on in part by demographic changes and exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic, has been the focus of efforts by the Federal Reserve to tame inflation by going after higherthan-normal wage growth.

As recently as February, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell called the labor market extremely tight and “out of balance,” with unemployment at 50-year lows, job vacancies near historic highs and wage growth still above where it was before the pandemic. The Federal Reserve has also explicitly planned for higher rates of unemployment and, in 2022, forecasted it could grow to 4.5% this year, essentially putting hundreds of thousands of Americans out of work.

Nikola Corp. Outlines Plans For New Hydrogen Hub In West Valley

Phoenix-based Nikola Corp. has submitted plans to the city of Buckeye for its new hydrogen manufacturing plant in the southern part of the city.

The company has been working on building a new hydrogen production hub, dubbed Project H20, across hundreds of acres in Buckeye just west of State Route 85 near the Arizona Department of Corrections Lewis Prison at 28702 W. Patterson Road.

Nammo Defense Systems Inc., Mesa, Arizona, was awarded a $498,092,926 firm-fixed-price contract for the full rate production of M72 Light Assault Weapon variants and components for shoulderlaunched munitions training systems. Bids were solicited via the internet with one received. Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of Dec. 19, 2026. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Newark, New Jersey, is the contracting activity.

The plant is part of Nikola’s plans to build out a large-scale hydrogen supply and dispensing infrastructure business for its trucks as well as for industrial, residential and commercial heating and for decarbonizing natural gas and power generation.

Nikola said it will first build a nearly 160-acre liquid hydrogen production facility at the southeast portion of its property and eventually expand onto the remaining acres it owns as demand increases. Its hydrogen facility is expected to use clean manufacturing practices such as liquification and electrolysis, project documents said.

Raytheon Co., Tucson, Arizona, is awarded a $55,121,826 costplus-fixed-fee modification to a previously awarded contract (N0002421C5434) for engineering and technical services in support of the Evolved Seasparrow Missile and NATO Seasparrow Missile Sys-tems programs. This contract combines purchases for the U.S. govern-ment (99%); and the governments of Japan and United Arab Emirates (1%) under the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program. Work will be performed in Tucson, Arizona (82%); Portsmouth, Rhode Island (17%); Andover, Massachusetts (less than 1%); San Jose, California (less than 1%); Aranjuez, Spain (less than 1%); Brisbane, Australia (less than 1%); and Koropi Attica, Greece (less than 1%). Work is expected to be com-pleted by December 2022. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Wash-ington, D.C., is the contracting activity.

Its current goal for the facility is to produce between 150 and 300 metric tons of liquid hydrogen daily to store on site before distribution. The plant will comprise two administrative buildings, a 7.3-acre liquification package, 7.4-acre electrolyzer package and water treatment facility.

Honeywell International Inc., Phoenix, Arizona, is awarded a $22,467,124 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for the development, build and demonstration of the Compact Rubidium Extended

About 20 permanent jobs will be created for skilled plant operators and technicians over three rotating shifts and about 150 construction jobs will

also be created to build the facility. Project documents said the median hourly wage will be approximately $40 hourly. Construction is also expected to occur over 14 to 16 months.

Stability Timing (CREST) — a ruggedized atomic clock module with a unique combina-tion of performance and size, weight and power, capable of the abso-lute accuracy of a commercial cesium beam clock in a VPX-card-like form-factor. The CREST module will be designed to provide uninter-rupted Global Positioning System (GPS)-quality timing holdover in challenging military environments. Work will be performed in Phoenix, Arizona, with an expected completion date of Dec. 21, 2026. This contract was competitively procured under long range broad agency announcement (BAA) N00014-21-S-B001. The Office of Naval Research, Arlington, Virginia, is the contracting activity).

Nikola claims that its new hydrogen hub will expand the current network of hydrogen production, distribution and dispensing planned for North America.“This expanded network will further support the increasing demand for Nikola’s commercial vehicle leases and allow for future expansion into hydrogen powered infrastructure solutions for the city of Buckeye and the surrounding area,” Nikola said.

The Boeing Co., Mesa, Arizona, was awarded a $239,590,243 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for the Apache Improved Turbine Engine Inte-gration Phase II. Bids were solicited via the internet with one received. Work will be performed in Mesa, Arizona, with an estimated comple-tion date of Dec. 31, 2026. Fiscal 2021 and 2022 research, develop-ment, test and evaluation, Army funds in the amount of $18,000,000 were obligated at the time of the award. U.S. Army Contracting Com-mand, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity.

The plant is expected to use existing private well water, which Nikola said is “sufficient” to meet the proposed level of development, demand and use.

Plans for the new hydrogen facility come as the company launches a new brand called HYLA to represent its hydrogen business. HYLA comprises the company’s energy products for producing, distributing and dispensing hydrogen to fuel its electric trucks. By Audrey Jensen – Phoenix Business Journal

LG Energy Solution To Invest $5.5 Billion To Build Battery Manufacturing Complex In Queen Creek

LG Energy Solution (LGES), a leading global manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles, mobility, IT, and energy storage systems, announced it will invest a total of $5.5 billion to build a battery manufacturing complex in Queen Creek, Arizona. The complex will consist of two manufacturing facilities – one for cylindrical batteries for electric vehicles (EV) and another for lithium iron phosphate (LFP) pouch-type batteries for energy storage systems (ESS). The investment represents the largest single investment ever for a stand-alone battery manufacturing facility in North America.

The $5.5 billion is nearly four times the initially-announced investment of $1.4 billion. The company plans to invest $3.2 billion to build a cylindrical battery manufacturing facility for EV with a capacity of 27 GWh. LGES also plans to invest $2.3 billion in a LFP pouchtype battery facility for ESS with a capacity of 16 GWh. Both facilities, totaling 43 GWh, are expected to break ground this year and lead to the creation of thousands of new jobs.

“Our decision to invest in Arizona demonstrates our strategic initiative to continue expanding our global production network, which is already the largest in the world, to further advance our innovative and top-quality products in scale and with speed,” said Youngsoo Kwon, CEO of LG Energy Solution. “We believe it’s the right move at the right time in order to empower clean energy transition in the U.S.”

The new cylindrical battery manufacturing facility aims to start mass production of 2170 cells in 2025, mainly for EV makers in North America. It is the first-ever U.S. cylindrical battery manufacturing facility solely invested by a Korean battery manufacturer.

The company’s new manufacturing facilities will utilize a state-of-the-art smart factory system

that carries out all decision making on machine-produced data. By implementing this key measure to enhance product quality, the Arizona facilities will aim to increase yield, improve manufacturing processes, and boost productivity to better respond to the ever-rising battery demands in the region.

LGES’ expansion adds to a recent string of battery announcements in Arizona. In February, Ecobat announced plans to build a lithium-ion battery recycling facility in Casa Grande. In December, American Battery Factory announced it is investing $1.2 billion to build a lithium-ion battery manufacturing facility in Tucson, and Sion Power announced it is expanding its battery manufacturing operations in Tucson, creating over 150 jobs.

which was announced in October.

O Analytics joined 17 other companies from New Mexico and across the country as part of the aerospace accelerator program. Many representatives from those companies traveled to Albuquerque from places such as Mountainview, California; Buffalo, New York; and Jacksonville, Florida, to take part in a pitch competition and meet local aerospace experts.

For Jones, the relationships she found by meeting other scientists, founders and industry experts in Albuquerque helped reframe how she wants to grow her company.

“What we’re finding is that there are a number of resources that are available in the state,” Jones said. “It’s not just funding per se. There are intellectual resources here in the labs at Sandia and also Los Alamos.

“Access to data and the imagery and the natural resources in New Mexico are equally as important to us as finance and the kind of ‘intelligentsia’ through the people who are here in New Mexico.”

Aerospace Companies Establish Mission Control At Newspace New Mexico’s Launchpad

Stacey Franklin Jones first heard rumblings of a new aerospace accelerator program last summer. Word of new opportunities spread quickly in what Jones, CEO of West Virginia-based aerospace company O Analytics, described as a tight-knit space startup community.

“From multiple sources, it sounded like it was going to be a really exciting program, and that it was going to be one that would be perfect for us in the stage that we were in,” she told Albuquerque Business First.

Her company applied to be a part of NewSpace New Mexico’s Ignitor program soon after, and O Analytics was accepted into the program’s first iteration of 18 participants

NewSpace New Mexico ran the inaugural Ignitor program out of its co-innovation workspace in Albuquerque, called the NewSpace New Mexico Launchpad. On any given day, you can find leaders and scientists from different companies using the slew of resources at the 8,700-square-foot facility, including a clean room, a thermal vacuum chamber, 3-D printers, soldering stations and individual work benches.

Casey Anglada DeRaad, the founder and CEO of NewSpace New Mexico, said much of the equipment at the Launchpad comes from the needs of young aerospace companies, which

often don’t have enough money and physical space to purchase and use their own equipment.

And the demand for equipment has grown as more companies look to utilize resources at the Launchpad, which is located at 2420 Alamo Ave. SE in Albuquerque. Scott Maethner, vice president of operations and integration for NewSpace New Mexico, said the nonprofit currently has 11 user agreements signed for companies to use the Launchpad.

That number has grown from only three agreements prior to the turn of the year, he said.

NewSpace’s Ignitor program, which was held in February, has been one driver of that increased demand.

“As they were here in town, a lot of them started talking to us about using our Launchpad and our facilities,” DeRaad said about representatives from the Ignitor companies who traveled to Albuquerque as part of the accelerator program. “And we can connect them even beyond the facilities we have here. We’re setting up a network of being able to get to other test equipment and lab equipment with the labs and other industry partners.”

In order to purchase more hightech equipment for aerospace companies to use, DeRaad said NewSpace is actively raising money. She said the nonprofit is targeting between $3 and $10 million.

While resources in New Mexico for growing aerospace companies extend beyond Albuquerque, DeRaad said NewSpace New Mexico’s Launchpad can act as a base for companies to turn their concepts into products, to

then eventually find more money and more customers. By Jacob Maranda -

Mesa-based Rosotics Expands Footprint At

Falcon Field Airport

Rosotics is planning a major expansion at Falcon Field Airport in Mesa where it intends to create a manufacturing, research and development campus for its heavy metal 3D printing system that will hit the market later this year.

The Mesa-based startup has inked a lease for nearly 130,000 square feet in two hangars in the northwest section of Falcon Field, the company announced at a launch event. The company previously occupied 15,800 square feet of space in a hangar at the airport.

In addition to research and development operations at Falcon Field, Rosotics will test, assemble and manufacture the Mantis, a portable 3D printing machine with arms that unfold and stretch, allowing for large prints of aerospace-grade aluminum and steel.

“This is a machine that is designed to make it possible for any parts larger than a refrigerator to be built by 3D printing,” Rosotics founder and CEO Christian LaRosa said, referring to the Mantis. “Initially, our market is aerospace and that’s for a very important reason. Aerospace is held to arguably the highest performance standard in metallurgy in the U.S. This machine is designed to meet that standard.”

The Mantis leverages rapid induction printing that uses fewer material resources and is more energy efficient than typical 3D printing methods, while providing capability for larger prints that previously weren’t possible for the aerospace, construction, marine and energy industries, LaRosa said.

“This machine is designed to make it easy to print something as large as a rocket structure, a tank or an interstage of a launch vehicle,” he said.

The Mantis base model produces aerospace-grade aluminum and steel prints ranging from 5 to 30 feet in diameter and more than 20 feet in height. The machines, however, can be built to suit customers’ needs. The Mantis plugs into a 240 volt outlet typically installed in warehouses, LaRosa said.

At its Falcon Field headquarters, Rosotics will test the machine’s limits to learn how fast it can print as well as how much stress the 3D printed material can withstand, LaRosa said.

There’s also potential for Rosotics to assemble parts at Falcon Field for delivery to customers upon request, LaRosa said.

“If they want, a fuselage section could be built here, loaded onto a truck and delivered. That could also be done,” LaRosa said. “The expansion at Falcon Field is instrumental in that.”

The company in November raised $750,000 in a seed funding round led by Draper Associates — an early-stage venture capital firm based in San Mateo, California — with participation from Correlation Ventures, Vibe Capital and Sequoia Capital.

Rosotics expects to launch the Mantis in October at an initial price of $95,000 with plans to offer monthly subscriptions that includes ongoing support, upgrades and maintenance.

The company operates a hardware-as-a-service business model, meaning as technology evolves, customers can take advantage of its latest developments.

Rosotics has been in discussions with several aerospace and helicopter companies about the Mantis and is in the process of booking deliveries for later in the year, LaRosa said.

The company, which AZ Inno recently named a ‘2023 Startup to Watch,’ is eager to expand in Mesa’s growing aerospace community. “Boeing is right across the street from us and Virgin Galactic’s next-generation

vehicle is going to be built in the city of Mesa,” LaRosa said. “It’s just wonderful to be surrounded by a community of aerospace innovation.” By Amy EdelenReporter Phoenix Business Journal

As Intel’s Chandler Expansion Progresses, Sen. Kelly Says Company Should Have ‘Competitive Application’ For CHIPS Act Incentives

Intel Corp.’s Ocotillo campus in Chandler was buzzing with activity as construction workers transported materials and cranes hoisted steel trusses onto buildings that will soon become the company’s newest semiconductor factories.

U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly was onsite to view construction progress of the two factories — Fab 52 and Fab 62 — a $20 billion project that broke ground in 2021 and is expected to spur creation of more than 3,000 high-paying tech jobs.

Precision enjoys a world-class reputation supplying a variety of OEMs, managing their inventory levels, and making certain product quality and timely delivery are NEVER compromised.

“This is going to be one of the premier facilities in the world, certainly here in the state of Arizona, bringing thousands of good paying jobs that you can actually raise a family on and that do not require a four-year degree,” Kelly said.

Intel spokeswoman Linda Qian declined to disclose whether the company is on track for meeting its previously announced timeline for opening the fabs in 2024.

She said Intel is making a “tremendous amount of progress” on the fabs, which will be complete within three to five years from the initial groundbreaking date.

The fabs will have more than 250,000 square feet of clean room space and will produce wafers, which are thin slices of semiconductor material used for fabrication of integrated circuits. Each wafer can hold hundreds or thousands of chips, depending on size.

Intel will send the wafers to an assembly testing center where they’ll be cut via lasers into individual chips, packaged and

shipped to customers, said Jason Bagley, government affairs director for Intel Corp.’s U.S. Southwest region.

The fabs will support growing demand for Intel’s products and be a provider for Intel Foundry Services. The two fabs, when complete, will bring the total to six fabs on Intel’s existing Ocotillo campus.

“I almost can’t stress enough how important these wafers are to our economy,” Kelly said. “Semiconductor chips go in everything from cellphones, vacuum cleaners and cars to the most sophisticated fighter jets in the world.”

The pandemic exacerbated a global shortage of semiconductor chips, most of which are produced in Asia.

“We’re at a point now where we need to change the balance of the semiconductor industry supply,” Bagley said. “We are actively working on these two new factories here as part of that strategy to shift some of that production capacity back to the U.S. and back to Europe, so we have more of a fifty-fifty division between Asia, the U.S. and E.U. These efforts are critical to the ability of this country to continue to innovate and continue being a global leader in the semiconductor space.”

Q2 Update to the 2023 Economic Outlook Forecasts 1.0% Expansion in Equipment and Software Investment

Equipment and software investment growth cooled in the early months of 2023, resulting in the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation lowering its annual forecast for investment growth to 1.0%, according to the Q2 update to the 2023 Equipment Leasing & Finance U.S. Economic Outlook. The report released today also predicts sluggish economic growth in Q1 as the economy edges closer toward recession, which the Foundation continues to expect will begin during the second half of the year. Overall, annualized economic growth is forecast to be 0.7% in 2023, largely driven by a solid jump-off point at the end of last year.

The Foundation’s report is focused on the $1.16 trillion equipment leasing and finance industry and highlights key trends in equipment investment.

Nancy Pistorio, Foundation Chair and President of Madison Capital LLC, said, “Despite the U.S. economy ending 2022 with healthy growth and maintaining some momentum into early 2023, equipment and software investment softened to 2% annualized growth in Q4 and remains under pressure. The economy is still above water, but most indicators point to slowing growth, and many economists continue to expect a recession to begin later this year. Should that come to

pass, I also expect the equipment finance industry will demonstrate its characteristic resilience, innovation, and resolve, and will continue to serve the financial needs of our customers regardless of the economic climate.”

Highlights from the Q2 update to the 2023 Outlook include: Equipment and software investment growth was sluggish in Q1 as the combined effects of a slowing industrial sector and higher interest rates weighed on equipment demand. While certain end-user markets may fare better in the months ahead, a broad economic downturn will drag on investment across the board, resulting in agrowth forecast for equipment and software investment of just 1.0%.

The U.S. economy is expected to continue to soften despite a healthy labor market, lower energy prices, and supply chain improvements. Stubborn inflation combined with rising consumer financial stress and a looming debt ceiling showdown will add to financial sector woes. Although a “soft landing” scenario is still achievable, a mild recession is likely, beginning during the second half of 2023.

The manufacturing sector has worked through much of its pandemic-era supply chain backlogs, but measures of supply chain health indicate the industrial sector is in the midst of a protracted slowdown. On the plus side, the sector’s jumping-off point was strong, so while demand is likely to continue to soften this year, the downturn may not be as severe as in past cycles.

Maker of blimp-like hybrid-electric cargo airship taps Honeywell Phoenix for generator

Phoenix-based Honeywell Aerospace will supply power for a blimp-like airship that is expected to handle heavy loads in less accessible areas for a variety of industries.

A 1-megawatt generator made by Honeywell was selected by Flying Whales Quebec — which is based in France and Canada — to be integrated into its new LCA60T hybrid-electric airship that is currently under development.

The Flying Whales craft is a 200-meter-long hybrid-electric vehicle able to carry 60 tons of cargo. It can load and unload from a stationary hovering position and was originally designed to carry renewable wood from remote areas. It is now conceived as a transport option that can move heavy loads at low cost with no ground constraints for a variety of logistical applications such as loading and unloading cargo ships or assisting in disaster zones.

Honeywell’s generator system was chosen for its power density and efficiency and its suitability for piloted and autonomous flight. It

can also be used as a motor without modifications for electric propulsion engines, Honeywell said.

In the Flying Whales craft, the generator will be integrated with a gearbox and a turbine that uses jet fuel and sustainable aviation fuel. The generator will supply power to the electric engines in a system that works similarly to one in a hybrid-electric automobile.

“Honeywell’s 1-megwatt generator is a perfect fit for a transformational aircraft like the LCA60T,” Dave Marinick, Honeywell Aerospace president of Engines & Power Systems, said in a statement. “Our generator is four times as powerful as any other generator flying today, and at unmatched power density. We believe in creating a more sustainable future for aviation, and our work with Flying Whales is helping bring that future to life.”

The Phoenix company said its generator passed its first round of testing in May 2022, and said that its results have been more impressive as testing has continued. The most recent tests in late 2022 revealed that the generator operated continuously at 1,000 kilowatts at 1.06 MVA (or 1MW) power levels, Honeywell said. The company said this means it has the high-power density and efficiency needed for hybrid-electric propulsion for aerospace and ground uses.

A2Z MANUFACTURING SW • 38 • May / June 2023 Continued Page 40

1.06 MVA (or 1MW) power levels, Honeywell said. The company said this means it has the high-power density and efficiency needed for hybrid-electric propulsion for aerospace and ground uses.

“This important collaboration completes and strengthens our Canadian consortium to develop and manufacture our high-power turbogenerator. Today, we are building in Canada the expertise and technological advancements for tomorrow’s aeronautics,” said Flying Whales CEO Arnaud Thioulouse in a statement.

Boeing Will Be Building Dozens Of Apache Helicopters In Mesa

The Boeing Co. will be building 184 AH 64E Apache attack helicopters in Mesa under a $1.9 billion contract modification that brings the value of an existing deal with the U.S. Army to $2.1 billion.

The modification, which was awarded on March 17, can still increase to more than $3.8 billion in the future, Boeing said. Boeing was the sole applicant for the contract after bids were solicited via the internet, the Department of Defense said.

The Apaches are projected to be finished by the end of 2027. Of

the total number, 115 will go to the U.S. Army, with 15 more to be procured as options. In addition, 54 helicopters will go to partner nations as part of the Foreign Military Sales program — including the first Apaches ever to go to Australia.

“We are enhancing the U.S. Army’s attack fleet, while supporting additional partner nations and welcoming our newest Apache customer, the Australian Army,” said Christina Upah, vice president of Attack Helicopter Programs and senior Boeing Mesa site executive, in a statement. “This contract highlights the need for Apaches worldwide.”

Australia is the 18th nation to use Apaches. Egypt will be another recipient of the helicopters under the Boeing contract, the Defense Department said. More than 1,275 Apaches are in operation around the world right now, Boeing said, and the U.S. Army earlier this month clocked the 5 million flight-hour milestone with the aircraft.

“With more than five million flight hours, the Apache continues to be reliable, versatile and lethal,” said Katie Yursky, interim vice president of Attack Helicopter Programs and senior Mesa site executive, in a statement.

The U.S. Army said the Boeing contract demonstrates the importance of the Apache program, which has been going since 1984, when the first AH64 took flight. The Army currently uses D-model Apaches as well as the AH-64E model.

“This multi-year contract is critical for the warfighter and the entire Apache team,” said Col. John (Jay) Maher, U.S. Army Apache project manager, in a statement. “It demonstrates the Army’s commitment to continue putting unmatched capability into the hands of our nation’s finest, while providing stability and predictability for the outstanding citizens and companies that pour their talent into producing the best attack helicopter in the world.”

Boeing signed the first multi-year Apache contract in 2017, and it resulted in 244 remanufactured Apaches for the Army and 24 new units for an international customer.

The Apaches are built at Boeing’s Arizona facility near Falcon Field Airport in Mesa. Boeing employs more than 4,400 people

“Our mission is to deliver higher quality homes, faster and more affordable, making the American dream of home ownership more accessible for younger generations. We will forever change the way homes are built.” — Jack Oslan Co-Founder, CEO

Consider these two statistics:

The construction industry will need to attract an estimated 546,000 additional workers on top of the normal pace of hiring in 2023 to meet the demand for labor, according to the Associated Builders and Contractors.

The affordable housing crisis in the United States has plagued Americans since the Great Recession—and is only getting worse. Last year’s estimates indicate that the U.S. needs some four to five million more homes on the market than it has right now.

Diamond Age, a cutting-edge robotics startup founded by a team of former Tesla employees, made headlines in March 2022 by closing a $50 million Series A funding round. This infusion of capital accelerated the development of their pioneering 3D printing construction system, a game-changing technology revolutionizing the construction industry. Thanks to a previous raise of $8 million in August 2021, Diamond Age’s founders were able to work on their startup and groundbreaking ideas full-time, bringing them to fruition and setting the stage for continued success.

The company was founded in Fremont, California, and relocated to Phoenix, Arizona when it landed a partnership with homebuilder Century Communities. Through the partnership, the plan was to build 72 affordable homes in its own backyard — in Casa Grande. The company is leveraging 3D printing and automated robotics to offset more than half of the manual labor required to build a new home and will eventually reduce construction times from nine months to just 30 days.

The founders plus several employees, totaling a team of 21, made the move to Arizona last February. Since then, the company has grown to more than 170 people, all in Arizona.

Today, the company is building from its ~25,000 square foot facility a suite of 26 end-of-arm robotic tools with 3D printing

Diamond Age Is Building

The ‘Factory in the Field’

capabilities that move along a gantry system to print the interior and exterior walls of a house. The firm’s Robotic-as-a-Service (RaaS) system comprises 3D printing, mechatronics, and robotics.

The company isn’t entirely reinventing the wheel. Rather, where possible, Diamond Age is borrowing its tools. The company’s engineers appropriated them from the automotive and other industries, only tweaking their design. Its automated rigs, which are organized into “cohorts” of seven to construct multiple properties at once, look like the

A2Z MANUFACTURING SW • 42 • May /June 2023

skeletons of a concert stage, each with a maneuverable robot at the center. They require only about half the manpower usually used on-site.

One of the co-founders, Jon Reiland, earned his mechanical engineering degree from San Diego State University, after serving in the Marine Corps. “I was lucky that the program was very hands-on, and I not only learned manual machining; I also learned CNC machining on Haas machines.” When it was time for Diamond Age to launch its machine shop, Jon’s choice for machine tools was naturally the Haas machine.

Josh Hansen, Business Manager for Ellison Machinery, the Arizona distributor for Haas machines, says, “I didn’t meet Jon until the closing stages of his first Haas machine tool purchase, because he went directly to the Haas ‘Build & Price’ application on our website.” Jon says, “Our first Haas purchase was a Haas VF-5, 40 Taper 3 axis CNC mill that includes a high-power and direct-drive spindle.” Since then, Josh is available to support and recommend not just the best machine tool but also the accessories that Diamond Age will most benefit from.

Jon says there are many reasons he is extremely partial to the Haas machine tool line, including:

• Superior dealer support (the service team is large because there are so many Haas machines in the valley).

• The controls are made by Haas, and they are extremely intuitive and user-friendly.

• The brand is American-made.

• Haas’s operations are all extremely high-tech (i.e., Build & Price) and this

matches our business style.

• Machinists are trained in schools on the Haas machines, so it is easier to find machinists who know how to operate our machines.

• They are a superior price/value machine brand.

Jon says that since purchasing the first Haas machine, the VF-5/40XT, he and lead machinist Hubert Torres have purchased the UMC-1000SS and the Haas ST-28Y. Hubert says, “The UMC-1000SS is great for 5th-axis machining on large, complex parts, and the ST-28Y is one of Haas’ larger Y-Axis CNC Lathes, with 11.75” x 22.5” max capacity, just what we need for cutting larger parts.”

Hubert has more than 18 years of experience with Haas machines, and he was one of the first employees hired once the company moved to Arizona. Hubert says, “The Ellison team is renowned for their service and support in Arizona. At Diamond Age, we’ve only had one issue with a Haas machine, with a coolant part. The Ellison Machinery service technician was onsite very quickly, had the part on its truck, and the machine was up and running the same day.”

Diamond Age is a rapidly growing and exciting entity. They are looking for skilled labor, including welders, machinists, programmers, engineers, and particularly anyone who is experienced in automation. To apply, visit their website: diamondage3d. com.

Haas Automation manufactures a complete line of CNC Vertical Machining Centers, Horizontal Machining Centers, Turning Centers, 5-axis Machining Centers, Rotary Products, and fully integrated Automation Solutions.

Arizona’s $58 Billion In Manufacturing Investments Among Most In Nation

Arizona has attracted more than $58 billion in private investments for manufacturing since 2021, one of the highest levels in the country, according to the White House.

Arizona analysts and experts agree that federal policies likely played a role in the investments, but they said Biden can’t claim all the credit: They pointed instead to an “ecosystem of individuals” on the state and local levels who worked for years to “put Arizona in the positive spot it is in today.”

The White House said the Arizona funding is part of more than $435 billion in private investment for projects in every state over the last two years. More than $200 billion of the investment is slated for semiconductor manufacturing across the country and another $200 billion has been pledged for clean-energy products such as electric vehicles and batteries, according to administration data. Investment in Arizona followed that pattern, with much of the funding planned for semiconductors and battery manufacturing.

The largest amount in Arizona is the $26 billion pledged by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., which plans to build two TSMC plants in the state. Intel has promised to invest $20 billion to facilities it operates in Chandler, while LG Energy Solution has said it will spend $5.5 billion to make electric vehicle batteries in Queen Creek.

An Arizona State University economist said that the state’s “culture of welcoming business” has fostered relationships with companies like TSMC and LG Energy in recent years. But Dennis Hoffman said there’s no doubt that Biden-era policies have helped those relationships flourish.

“This chips bill (the CHIPS and Science Act) to some degree, and the clean energy incentives for autos that lead to the need for more battery manufacturing, you can draw the direct link from that type of legislation to these types of businesses,” said Hoffman, director of the L. William Seidman Research Institute at the W.P. Carey School of Business.

Universities are also a major player in helping promote manufacturing growth for the state, Hoffman said, as they provide the research and workforce needed in semiconductor and battery industries.

“People want to come here, live and go to school in a vibrant community with the idea that they can earn an education here and join the workforce and have a lucrative career,” Hoffman said.

“It’s serendipity for sure,” he said of the confluence of factors. “It’s federal government action,

A2Z MANUFACTURING SW • 46 • May /June 2023

it’s local government action with respect to incentives in organizing the investment here and coordinating all the activities that have to take place to make this investment successful.”

Bioflyte Expands Into New Facility At The Sandia Science And Technology Park

Sometimes a company — especially a quick-growing startup — outgrows its space and needs to find a new spot to scale. That’s what happened recently with Albuquerque’s BioFlyte.

The startup announced that it’s set up operations at a new, 5,300-square-foot corporate facility at the Sandia Science and Technology Park. BioFlyte wants to use that new facility to ramp up its manufacturing and engineering operations, CEO Todd Sickles said.

BioFlyte previously ran operations out of The Bioscience Center in Albuquerque, an incubator with laboratories and offices for bioscience companies. This new facility will give BioFlyte nearly three times as much space to handle manufacturing, engineering and research and development.

“Now that the firm has matured, we need more space dedicated for lab and testing areas,” Sickles said. “We’ve created a completely separate manufacturing organization so that engineering can do product development and manufacturing can do manufacturing.”

Alongside offices, manufacturing and engineering, the facility will also feature a demonstration space where potential customers can visit to see the company’s technology in action. That technology is a

Adapting to New Possibilities

mass spectrometry-based sensor used for bio-threat surveillance, he said. It works by autonomously sampling air to detect and identify airborne threats. Sickles said the startup hopes to use its bioaerosol threat identifier products to protect “critical infrastructure,” a category that includes mail facilities and airports, as well as cargo processing and arenas and sports venues.

The demand for the sort of biological threat detection technology that BioFlyte is commercializing has grown steadily, Sickles said, and he envisions the company expanding over the next few years as it ramps up manufacturing and engineering efforts.

To help ramp up those manufacturing efforts, BioFlyte appointed Bill Rule as the company’s vice president of manufacturing. He’ll oversee the startup’s manufacturing operations and manage its supply chain model.

Rule joins the Albuquerque company from Everactive, an internet of things company headquartered in Santa Clara, California. He also managed his own supply chain and manufacturing engineering consultancy, according to the release.

Arizona Gets $1.2M for Hypersonics 3D Printing

Hypersonic glide vehicles will need to resist incredible heat and pressure from flying at Mach Five and above. For that reason, the materials used to make them will likely be very hard, expensive, and difficult to work with. Due to cost, the need to optimize geometries, and a general need to save on mass, additive manufacturing (AM) is a logical technology to manufacture new components for these craft or, indeed, entire vehicles. Additionally, 3D printers can be used to make the new materials themselves.

A $1.2 million grant for equipment for the University of Arizona and its Arizona Research Center for Hypersonics from the Office of Naval Research’s Defense University Research Instrumentation Program is, therefore, rather timely. Professors Andrew Wessman and Sammy Tin will use the funds to buy a laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) machine, a gas atomiser, a vacuum furnace and an X-ray diffractometer so that they can print test parts, develop new alloys, make powders, and sinter parts.

The team hopes to make new materials specifically suited to hypersonics. Indeed, they could make a whole host of materials for use inside engines, on the surface of a vehicle, and for other components. Heat resistance, printability, ductility and many other specific factors could be improved overall. “Combining all these pieces will give us a unique capability in terms of the infrastructure for advanced manufacturing. If we can develop materials and alloys that are specific to the 3D-printing process, we can customize alloy chemistries so that they have attributes that make it easier or more friendly for 3D printing,” said Professor Tin.

The win is an important one for Arizona. The University just got another part of a hypersonics research grant, as well as $1.7 million for better wind tunnels, and previously partnered with Raytheon. The University has said that hypersonics is strategic for its research efforts. Indeed, there will be billions in research funding for hypersonics available in the year to come. I cannot think of anything that will see such a fundamental, deep, and sudden influx of research funding over the coming years. There is a real opportunity for Arizona to make a mark and become one of the main centers for hypersonics in the U.S. This could spin off businesses, lead to key patents, and let it leapfrog larger universities.

Hypersonics represent the ultimate high ground. Significantly faster than conventional aircraft, hypersonic glide vehicles could deploy worldwide in hours. You could put a vehicle above a city anywhere on earth, like a taskable satellite that could be deployed anywhere—or a craft could be a missile that would be impossible to stop.

That contract comes shortly after Raytheon said it was awarded a $320.3 million contract to produce a next-generation smart weapon — called the StormBreaker — that will be able to operate in severe weather conditions.

Raytheon’s Missiles and Defense division is based in Tucson, and Northrop Grumman has a significant operation in Chandler and last year expanded its office there.

The technology behind the weapon involves an air-breathing subsystem. The two companies are already working together on a contract worth nearly $1 billion that integrates air-breathing technology — which makes use of incoming air for propulsion as the missile travels — as part of the first-of-its-kind Hypersonic Attack Cruise Missile for the U.S. Air Force.

The objective in this project is to more than double the range of the missile from its currently planned 310 miles, according to a report by Defense News.

The DeepStrike-ER is being developed in four increments, and the Raytheon-Northrop Grumman collaboration would be the fourth. Each increment addresses specific operational requirements, starting with the missile itself.

The missile system is being developed together with the Australian Defence Forces and is intended to be the Army’s answer to next-generation threats, with improved range and accuracy over the current Army Tactical Missile System.

“Our experience in developing the most sophisticated missile technologies in the world uniquely positions Raytheon to partner with the Army to address this high-priority modernization program,” said Tom Laliberty, president of Land Warfare & Air Defense at Raytheon Missiles & Defense, in a statement.

“This legacy, coupled with our creative partnerships to bring together proven technologies, enables us to deliver a superior solution that meets or exceeds the requirements for the critical long-range precision fires mission.”

Raytheon was an initial competitor with Lockheed Martin in the PrSM competition but eventually had to drop out in 2020 after having trouble getting to the flight testing stage.

Under the StormBreaker contract, Raytheon will be working to produce and deliver 1,500 StormBreaker air-tosurface weapons for the U.S. Air Force.

AS9100 Certified APS Machining Offers Quick -Turn Machining For Complex Assemblies With Help In Design For Manufacturability

Two gifted men, one a Journeyman caliber machinist and the other, a degreed mechanical engineer, grew to respect one another’s talents over the past decade, both working for the same employers twice in their careers.

Both also shared the same dream — that of starting up their own business. And so it happened that Bob Holmes (the engineer) and Horacio Hernandez (the machinist) launched APS Machining (Aerospace Precision Solutions) as a Minority owned small business in May of 2019. Horacio says, “We have been accumulating tools and equipment we would need for a precision machine shop for the past decade — we were just that sure it would happen.”

Aerospace manufacturing is what the two founders know better than anything. Horacio’s employers included some large aerospace/ defense contractors, including United Technology Corporation (UTC) and Sargent Aerospace, as well as small machine shops.

Unlike the typical engineer graduating from Arizona State University, Bob did not have a strong desire to work for a large aerospace company upon graduation. He says, “Many of my classmates who went to work for large companies didn’t like what they were doing, and this helped me to realize my job responsibilities would be so much broader in a small company.”

Horacio and Bob were savvy business owners from the start. Horacio was the first to work full time for the newly formed company and Bob continued to work for his employer during the day, supporting APS in the evenings and weekends. The company initially resided in a 1000 square foot building and didn’t secure its new building 4X the size until revenues grew to support it in 2021.

Today, the company offers its customers specialty high precision machining, including:

Complex assemblies

R&D Components and tooling

Milling, drilling, boring, tapping, threading and turning

MIG and TIG welding, honing, grinding and deburring • Materials including Titanium, Aluminum, Composites, Inconel, etc.

From the start, the owners knew that achieving AS9100 certification was paramount to their success. Horacio says, “Prior to our AS9100 certification, many of our aerospace and defense customers utilized us for R&D and fixturing projects, because they knew that we specialize in design support (designing for manufacturability), difficult alloys, and quick turn.”

Bob says that Lauri Larson, Strategic Buyer at NMG Aerospace, recommended BMSC for the young company’s journey to AS9100

certification. Bob says,“BMSC won out for 2 reasons: they were local, and they were recommended by a buyer I have a lot of respect for.”

Bob says, “We worked with Bretta Kelly, owner of the company, and her colleague Debbie Hart throughout the process. The two are super easy to work with and very sharp. They know the AS9100 process inside and out, and they were always extremely professional.” Last month, the company successfully certified to AS9100: Revision D, with ‘0’ findings, Bob says. He adds, “We would highly recommend BMSC to anyone embarking on the ISO or AS9100 certification process. They truly want us to succeed as much as they want the success for their business.” Bob says that Bretta and Debbie work together so well, “it’s like they have a code between them.”

Horacio and Bob agree that achieving AS9100 certification is so much more than a door opener to new clients. Horacio says, “We’ve added so much in terms of traceability to our business with AS9100 certification. Where in the past if we ran a job a year ago, we had to use memory to recall what steps we took to save time and money on a job, today, we have it logged into our systems.” Bob adds, “We are just so much more organized with AS9100 in place.”

Bob says, “We’ve learned from our past employers what to do and what not to do. We recognize the need for superior communications with our customers. If there is a delay in shipment, regardless of what has caused it, we let our customers know just as soon as we know.” Horacio adds, “We pride ourselves on quick turn, and we will work till midnight to make this happen. When you come to APS, you are working with owners who bet their corporate paychecks on making sure we are successful for our customers.”

If you are looking for an AS9100D certified company that specializes in aerospace, highly complex parts needed quick turn, contact APS at: 480-773-1166 or apsmachiningaz@gmail.com

Through a little trial and error many years ago, Russ Kurzawski landed on a recipe for business success. Today, Star Metal Fluids (SMF) is a leader in the distribution of industrial process fluids, including metalworking coolants, machine lubricants, and cutting oils. They have developed an extremely diverse customer base in industries such as aerospace, medical, defense, firearm, semi-conductor, and so on.

When Russ launched the company 31 years ago, it was originally called Star Fluid & Tool. In those early years, Russ found that there was a void in the market for metalworking fluid specialists, and he dropped the tooling from his product portfolio, focusing exclusively on metalworking fluids, along with the equipment to accommodate these fluids. Today, the name Star Metal Fluids (SMF) accurately reflects the niche that the company serves. Metalworking fluids are complex, and most machinists and owners recognize that having a well-trained supplier who only sells and services these products, is what they need to keep the costly machine tools they purchase operating to their optimal capabilities. You just don’t purchase metalworking fluids like you are purchasing office supplies.

SMF is a family run company, and nearly every Kurzawski family member has been involved with

the business at some time. Russ’s oldest son Nick, came to work for the company after completing his LDS mission, and spent many years on SMF’s operations team. After working for the family business, Nick went on to work for a company designing firearms. Sadly, COVID took Nick’s life in December 2021, but the family will always be appreciative of the role he played to help grow the business. Aaron, the 2nd oldest, has been with the family business for almost 20 years and can remember being 10-years old when Russ started SMF out the home garage. He started selling for the company after returning from his LDS mission. Russ’s oldest daughter, Leigh Ann Waters, does some of the AR/AP work for the company, and Russ’s wife Shelley also supports finances for the business. Today, Aaron’s 17-year-old son, Kaden, can be seen working in the business during summer and winter breaks, when he is off from school.

“Our strict focus on the fluids used in metalworking processes has clearly been a recipe for success”, Aaron Kurzawski, General Manager for the company, says, “and our customer base continues to grow each year.” This growth has led to many expansions throughout the company’s history. The company has been headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona since 1992, and in 2008, SMF opened a second location in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Russ started the company out of his home garage in 1992, but rapid growth allowed him to expand into a 10’x20’ storage locker within the first year of SMF’s existence. One 10’x20’ storage locker quickly turned into two, which then turned into leasing a small commercial building to warehouse product. After several moves, with each location affording more and more space for growth, SMF’s Phoenix location now operates out of a 21,000sqft building near central Phoenix.

Business was growing in the Arizona market with double digit growth year over year when Russ made the decision to expand into Utah. “We always had a few customers in Utah, and until 2008, we supported them from Arizona”, Aaron says. However,

A2Z MANUFACTURING SW • 56 • May /June 2023
Russ, Shelley and sons Aaron and Brandon
Our strict focus on the fluids used in metalworking processes has clearly been a recipe for success”— Aaron Kurzawski

for anyone who knows Russ, tough, aggressive, bold, hardworking and market savvy are terms that come to mind. Aaron says, “There are many Russisms that Russ is known to share with our team, and one that comes to mind is, ‘If you’re not growing, you’re dying!’”.

Since that initial journey in 2008 to expand their business in Utah, mind you in the heart of a recession, SMF has established itself as the leader in the metalworking fluid industry in the southwestern United States. “We now occupy almost 9000 sq ft of warehouse in space in West Valley, UT, to inventory the products our customers need and expect from us” says Aaron. Russ has exceptionally high expectations for his employees, as they are the backbone to their success. “We work hard and we treat our customers really well, going above and beyond”, Aaron says, adding, “We have also been blessed to have superior employees who we have retained for many years.”

SMF also believes in building strong relationships with local machine tool dealers and has been able to do so over the past 30 years. “Where we have these relationships, we are able to offer a free coolant fill for each new machine sold”, Aaron says, “and this goes a long way for someone just getting into the industry, who just spent tens of thousands of dollars, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars on a new machine.” These relationships are a key component to SMF’s growth and a huge benefit for the machine tool dealers to have an expert to reach out to when their customers start asking questions about metalworking fluids.

Like SMF’s expectation for excellence within its own team, SMF has strategically aligned themselves with the best manufacturers of metalworking fluids and precision cleaners in the industry, including: Qualichem, Castrol, Quaker Houghton, Brulin, Envirotech, Vantage and Hangsterfers. Aaron says, “When we are onboarding a new supplier, we evaluate their ability to provide the superior support that our customers are accustomed to. It is our expectation that our vendors share the same drive

and ambition that we have within our team.” Utilizing the best resources from each manufacturer’s product lineup, SMF can accommodate any metalworking or cleaning application they come across. Rick Mattise, Senior Sales Engineer for Qualichem, said, “For over a decade SMF has been the largest Qualichem distributor in the world!”

SMF also believes that it is important to invest back into the company. Aaron says, “We recently performed a website overhaul, and with this upgrade, our customers can order any of our products online, they can access technical information, or they can contact us directly. Our customers are increasing their use of online ordering each year, but for those who prefer to talk with someone directly, at SMF they get a person on the phone when they call, not an automated message.” Online ordering has become second nature to many of us, and for this reason, SMF has made it a point to have an online presence.

Russ says, “From the beginning, Star Metal Fluids LLC has been dedicated to providing the metalworking industry with the latest in technology to meet the demanding challenges and constant changes of today’s high-tech operations. We know applications... and we will find the best possible metalworking fluid to not just ‘meet your needs’, but improve finishes, tolerance and part size. We are not a ‘Me Too’ company... but specialize... so we can offer you the technical expertise and products you will find nowhere else.”

SMF is growing and they are looking for great people to join their team. Today, there is an immediate opening for a sales/account manager in AZ, and in Utah, there is a part time warehouse position open. Aaron says, “SMF is a very good place to work. We give our team the tools, the training and the support to enable them to succeed.” For more information on hiring or learning more about SMF’s product line, call: 800-367-9966: email: customerservice@metalfluids. com or visit their website at: metalfluids.com

Solar Industries’ New Milltronics

TRM3016 is “Like Getting another Machinist”

If, like me, you are accustomed to touring precision machine shops, prepare to be amazed at the Solar Industries corporate headquarters. Solar Industries doesn’t make solar products per se, rather the 47 year old company manufactures windows and skylights. The company’s products are all manufactured in Tucson, Arizona in a sprawling set of campus buildings that total 314,000 square feet, including their new 70,000 square foot building that will open soon. The company manufactures approximately 1400 windows, 400-500 skylights, and 100 -150 industrial skylights each day. A tour of just the window factory could easily take 1.5 hours, and you will be impressed with the entire process that manufacturing a window entails.

The company, founded by Don Medoff in 1976, became a woman-owned business five years ago, when Don passed away and his wife Margaret took over. Today, as the sole owner, Margaret is very active in the business. While all manufacturing takes place in Tucson, Arizona, the company also has branches, warehouses (8) and retail stores throughout the United States. The company employs ~500 team members, with the majority (400) resident in their Tucson facility.

Victor Nguyen, Mechanical Engineer who joined the company a few years ago, says, “Across our company, we have a mixture of ‘old school’ manual operations, as well as new, automated technology. As a recent college graduate with experience in modern manufacturing facilities, I am helping the company incorporate and implement newer and better practices and equipment.”

The company has a small tool room that is run by John Phillips, a journeyman tool maker who was trained in a 5-year journeyman program in the UK . John was hired because of his extensive experience in manual machining, and today he services and repairs a number of the tools and machines Solar Industries uses to manufacture their skylights and windows. John says, “The company has a number of punch presses, cutters, and automated lines. I am often tasked with repairing broken and worn out parts on these machines. I also support the production efforts with die making. These are just a few examples of the parts that come to me each day. “

Solar Industries is a highly successful company manufacturing more than 1900 products per day, yet their tool room is manned by one, albeit highly skilled, team member (John). Last year, John and Victor made the decision to increase the tool room throughput and capabilities by adding a CNC machine, a Milltronics TRM3016. This machine is a tool room mill that offers large travels, speed and power at a great price. Richard White, owner of White’s Niche Products, LLC

(WNP), the distributor for Milltronics in Arizona, says, “A unique feature of the TRM Series is the “drop down” door openings that allow long part pass through to help accommodate oversize parts.”

He adds, “Another feature that many of our customers invest in is the Digital Set-Up Assistant (DSA), which uses Wi-Fi to make a cell phone or tablet an extension of the user’s control. This software feature allows an operator to reduce setup time by easily accessing photos of parts and work holding, set-up data, tooling info and more. With DSA, users can easily document part setup instructions for others to reference. It also stores part-related files grouped as packages for easy recall.”

While Victor is a degreed mechanical engineer, by his own admission, he has little experience working in a machine shop. John, on the other hand, has had experience with Milltronics with

A2Z MANUFACTURING SW • 58 • May /June 2023

his previous employer, and he has known Richard for many years. “We had a used Milltronics in my last shop, and in the 15 years we owned it, it was extremely reliable and ready to go every day”, John says, adding, “When people talk about a machine builder having many trucks with an extensive service staff, I say that they have that many because of the number of machines that need repair. With the Milltronics, we have Richard, and he can do just about any repair and is extremely responsive, often getting back to me within the hour. I knew purchasing the Milltronics TRM3016 through Richard would be an excellent decision.”

John says that one of the features he really likes is the ease of programming on his new Milltronics TRM3016. It is being used to cut tool steel, plastics and aluminum; he adds. Although Victor is inexperienced in machining, and John a bit rusty using a Milltronics machine, a one day training at the WNP showroom with Richard gave for both Victor and John, the skills and knowledge they needed to have the new Milltronics machine up and running.

Victor says, “We have 16 machines in production that need new brakes. With ensuring production is always up and running, we need the 16 replacement brakes built this week. Prior to the Milltronics TRM3016,

we couldn’t even make these in-house. Today, with the machine, we can make each brake in 15 minutes, and they are all consistently high quality.” He adds, “While the Milltronics is machining the brakes, John can be on one of our manual machines repairing another part. The Milltronics is like getting a 2nd machinist for us!”

John says that the Milltronics TRM3016 is enabling him to increase his part output in the tool room. He adds, “The engineering team is pleased with the quality and tolerances to spec that we can achieve, and I think most importantly, they are pleased with how we can turn around parts so much quicker

than we could preMilltronics.”

BAE Systems, Heart Aerospace Collaborate On Electric Airplane Battery

The report also highlighted leveraging regional resources and accelerating growth and innovation as two areas the state must prioritize to support manufacturers.

Global aerospace and defense company BAE Systems and Heart Aerospace, a Swedish electric airplane maker, will collaborate to define the battery system for Heart’s ES-30 regional electric airplane.

The manufacturing sector represents 9.1% of the state’s GDP, according to the report, at $5.6 billion, and employs almost 40,000 people, or about 8.5% of the workforce.

The battery will be the first-of-its-kind to be integrated into an electric conventional takeoff and landing (eCTOL) regional aircraft, allowing it to efficiently operate with zero emissions and low noise.

The bulk of these manufacturers are small businesses, the report found, with 86.5% employing fewer than 50 workers.

Though the workforce’s sector took a hit early in the pandemic, with more than 2,500 jobs lost from Q4 2019 to Q3 of 2020. the industry “surged back,” the report states, with manufacturing representing the second-largest number of all jobs from August 2020 to August 2021.

“Our industry-leading solution builds on decades of expertise delivering technologies and systems needed to progress sustainable transportation,” said Ehtisham Siddiqui, vice president and general manager of Controls and Avionics Solutions at BAE Systems. “We are delighted to collaborate with Heart Aerospace on the innovative battery system for its electric airplane.”

The state’s top manufacturing-related cluster was boat building and repairing, which represents 5,111 jobs, followed by precious metals, at 2,826 jobs.

The program will leverage more than 25 years of BAE Systems’ expertise in electrifying large, heavy-duty industrial vehicles. Today, the company has more than 15,000 power and propulsion systems operating in service across the globe. Work on the program will be conducted at the company’s stateof-the-art facility in Endicott, New York.

Quality of life, proximity to family or heritage and proximity to customers are the top three draws among manufacturers to doing business in Rhode Island, while skilled workforce, access to major markets and proximity to supply chain lagged, in descending order.

“BAE Systems’ extensive experience in developing batteries for heavy-duty

But several state policies limit growth, according to respondents, who also

ground applications, and their experience in developing safety critical control systems for aerospace, make them an ideal partner in this important next step for the ES-30 and for the aviation industry,” said Sofia Graflund, chief operating officer at Heart Aerospace. “We look forward to decarbonizing air travel together.”

identified business-friendly policies as their preferred focus area for Rhode Island lawmakers.

Aside from a shortage of workers with needed skills, manufacturers also feel limited in teaching workers new skills and finding new customers, with some also pointing to increasing business cost from regulations and business taxes.

The ES-30 airplane will be powered by four electric motors, and has an allelectric range of 200km, an extended reserve hybrid range of 400km with 30 passengers, and the ability to fly up to 800km with 25 passengers.

The state “doesn’t make it easy to do business,” Steve Perry Sr., vice president of Darlington Fabrics, said in the report. “But our proximity allows us to help each other. We have access to our legislators and a great support network.”

The ES-30 is planned to have a costeffective and scalable upgrade path as future battery technology matures. The battery upgrade roadmap allows for increased usable energy at the same weight, resulting in longer flight durations and expanded route options.

About 60% of respondents plan to increase wages and salaries in 2022, and about half plan to raise prices. Automation and employee training are also by about 40% of manufacturers, according to the report. Providence Business News;

Heart Aerospace has a total of 230 orders and 100 options for the ES-30, along with letter of intent for an additional 108 airplanes.

International Aerospace Joint Venture Adds Scottsdale’s Standardaero To Maintenance Network

GE Aerospace’s joint venture with a French manufacturer is expanding the most lucrative part of its business with agreements with two aviation firms, one of which is from the Valley.

CFM International, an Ohio-headquartered 50-50 joint venture between GE Aerospace and Safran, announced agreements with Scottsdale-based StandardAero and Singapore-based ST Engineering to add the two firms to its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) network for the LEAP engine.

StandardAero and ST Engineering provide engine overhaul and repair services for aircraft engines. Both signed a CFM Branded Services Agreements to service CFM LEAP-1A and LEAP 1-B engines, the joint venture’s flagship products.

“StandardAero is honored to become part of the worldwide MRO network for the LEAP engine,” said Lewis Prebble, President of Airlines and Fleets for StandardAero, said in a statement. “The CBSA agreement extends our existing 14-year relationship with CFM as an MRO provider for the CFM56-7B powerplant, and continues StandardAero’s expansion of its narrowbody engine support capabilities. We look forward to meeting the needs and expectations of LEAP operators worldwide for many decades to come.”

StandardAero was the No. 1 ranked private company based on annual revenue during the Phoenix Business Journal’s 2019 ACE Awards, and the company’s chief executive, Russell Ford, was named CEO of the year during the same awards.

Services like maintenance and repair are the largest segment of GE Aerospace’s revenue. In 2022, services represented 70% of GE Aerospace’s $26.8 billion in revenue, accounting for about $18.7 billion.

Services are set to become an even more important part of GE Aerospace’s revenue. Culp said during the investor day the world’s aircraft powered by engines manufactured by GE Aerospace and CFM International represent the largest and youngest fleet in aviation history, with 41,000 engines having not yet entered the shop for their first service.

GE Aerospace and CFM International comprise about 70% of the commercial aircraft engine industry. GE Aerospace is poised to become Cincinnati’s newest Fortune 500

Global Technology Firm Plans $40m

Albuquerque Facility

A global technology firm plans to stand up a multimillion-dollar advanced manufacturing facility in Albuquerque.

ABB Group, a company with products and services focused around electrification and robotics, wants to invest $40 million through a new 90,000-squarefoot manufacturing facility in west Albuquerque. That facility will be used to increase ABB’s production of cable products and will include robotics and digital automation technology, according to a Thursday news release from the company.

It’ll be built on ABB’s existing 40-acre Albuquerque campus. Operations surrounding the facility could create 55 jobs in New Mexico. Planning and construction is underway with completion set for 2024, according to the release.

The manufacturing facility will be part of the company’s installation products division, which is one of 20 different divisions run by the firm. Ralph Donati, the executive vice president and general manger of the U.S. and Latin American regions for that division, told Albuquerque Business First the new facility will be an extension of ABB’s existing work in New Mexico. The firm has had a footprint in the state since 1973.

About 80% of the product manufactured in Albuquerque is sold in the U.S., Donati said. He

added that the electric cable product could play a “key role” in efforts to electrify the country’s electric grid.

“I am thrilled that ABB is expanding its manufacturing presence in Albuquerque and creating more new Mexico jobs,” New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham said in a prepared statement. “This is a company making strides in energy infrastructure and climate solutions, and the state looks forward to working with ABB to identify economic development tools to support this exciting expansion.”

Hiring for the new manufacturing facility will take place over time as construction of the facility scales. The new hires will be full-time positions for production, engineering and quality specialist roles, which is what the company typically staffs in Albuquerque, Hannah Anthony, public relations and media relations manager for ABB, told Business First.By Jacob Maranda – Albuquerque Business First

Manufacturers Support Bills That Would Expand Arizona Grants For Infrastructure

New bills moving through the Arizona Legislature would expand public infrastructure grant and reimbursement programs to support the growth of manufacturers moving to the state.

House Bill 2809 is proposing to change a state program that was originally established in 2013 as a way to reimburse cities up to 80% of costs for public infrastructure needed to support a qualified manufacturing facility. The funds are directed to infrastructure like water, wastewater and roads, which are all critical for large manufacturers that use a lot of water and are located in largely undeveloped areas.

The law currently allows the Arizona Department of Revenue to reimburse no more than $100 million total for all cities through construction sales tax from the building of an eligible manufacturing plant. The $100 million cutoff was approved by the Legislature last year and was an increase from the original $50 million cap.

The proposed bill this year would remove the existing reimbursement cap, but it would still limit the reimbursements municipalities can receive to either 80% of total public infrastructure costs per project or no more than the amount of revenue the state collects from construction of the buildings for the

manufacturer, whichever number is less.

To qualify for the program, manufacturers in Maricopa and Pima counties have to invest at least $500 million, while companies in all other Arizona counties have to invest at least $50 million. This provision would stay the same in the new bill, which is also keeping the current end date for the program in 2033. Chris Camacho, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, said the "high threshold requirements for reimbursement ensure this program is narrowly tailored for supporting municipalities and companies that have invested heavily in cities."

The bill, which has the support of Intel, TSMC, and multiple Arizona cities and industry organizations, passed unanimously in the House and is being transmitted to the Senate.

Other manufacturers in the state such as Lucid Group Inc. are also supporting Senate Bill 1223 to extend an Arizona grant called the Water Infrastructure and Commerce Grant Fund.

EVelution Energy Announces $200 Million Cobalt Production Facility In Yuma County

EVelution Energy, a U.S. electric vehicle (EV) battery materials processing company, announced plans to build a solar-powered carbon neutral cobalt sulfate production facility in Yuma County, Arizona. This facility, the first of its kind in the U.S., is expected to commence construction in 2024, be fully operational by 2026, and create approximately 300 construction jobs and 60 fulltime jobs once operational.

Representing a $200 million investment, the facility will produce cobalt sulfate for EV batteries, a material crucial to America’s initiative to electrify the U.S. automotive fleet and transition to a net-zero economy. Cobalt sulfate is an integral component of the U.S. electric vehicle (EV) critical materials supply chain. EVelution Energy’s facility is expected to produce approximately 33,000 metric tons of EV battery grade cobalt sulfate per year, enough to support the domestic production of approximately 470,000 EVs each year.

“We are very excited to develop a domestic EV batterymaterial production facility, particularly a solar-powered facility, which is of key importance to the United States,” said Navaid Alam, President and CEO of EVelution Energy.

“O ur new production facility will bring back basic infrastructure and re-onshore jobs and technology to the United States and decrease our reliance on other countries for critical EV battery materials. We are grateful to Governor Hobbs, Senator Sinema and Senator Kelly, the Arizona Commerce Authority, the Greater Yuma Economic Development Corporation and M3 Engineering for their partnership, as well as Yuma County and the Yuma County Board of Supervisors for their support.”

Built in a qualified opportunity zone in Yuma County between Tacna and Dateland, this best-in- class “green” facility will apply sustainable practices across all aspects of manufacturing and operations. In addition, the fully solarpowered facility is expected to not only supply all of its own power needs, but also support the surrounding agricultural community with clean power.

EVelution Energy’s proposed investment highlights the recent ramp-up of economic activity in rural Arizona including Optimal Health Systems’ supplement production expansion in the Town of Pima, FrameTec’s $40 million manufacturing facility in Camp Verde and Nucor’s $100 million expansion of its steel production facility in Kingman.

Star Wars: Raytheon Wins Contract To Develop Orbital Hypersonic Missile Defense System

Raytheon Technologies has won a contract worth more than $250 million from the U.S. Department of Defense’s Space Development Agency to design and develop a satellite system to detect and track hypersonic missiles and other threats.

The contract was awarded to the company’s Space and

Business loan approval rates rose at regional and community banks as well. Small banks granted 49.8 percent of the funding requests they received in August, up one-tenth from July. It represents the highest figure for small banks since November 2014.

Institutional lenders — pension funds and insurance companies — remained unchanged at an Index record 64.9 percent, up one-tenth of

Loan approval rates among alternative lenders rose to 56.6 percent, one-tenth of a percent higher than in the previous month.

Alternative lenders have become a source of quick capital. When small business owners, alternative lenders could approve riskier loans via innovations in fintech, which give them more flexibility than the banks to adjust rates and covenants on the deals. This includes an ability to accept non-conventional sources of collateral, such as real estate and outstanding invoices (h/t Forbes).

Credit unions approved 40.2 percent of loan applications in August, a slight drop of one-tenth of a percent from July and a large drop from their all-time high of 57.9 percent in March 2012. By Anthony Noto

Intelligence division, but the project aligns with key hypersonic missile development projects being done at the Tucson-based Missiles & Defense division. Raytheon said recently that the two divisions would be combined, but how that will affect Arizona operations is unknown so far.

Under the deal, Raytheon will deliver a seven-vehicle missile tracking satellite constellation and support launch and ground operations. The satellites will be in low-Earth orbit and will provide missile warning and tracking operations.

The project is part of the Defense Department’s Proliferated

Warfighter Space Architecture, an initiative meant to help the military move faster to take advantage of the latest commercial technological developments.

The contract comes several months after Raytheon Missiles & Defense and Northrop Grumman were awarded a contract worth nearly $1 billion to develop the first-of-itskind Hypersonic Attack Cruise Missile (HACM) for the U.S. Air Force.

The two major Arizona defense contractors have been working jointly on the project since 2019, integrating Northrop Grumman’s scramjet engines into Raytheon’s airbreathing hypersonic weapons.

Separately, Raytheon said that its Missiles & Defense division had been placed on the Chinese government’s “unreliable entities list” in connection with foreign military sales to Taiwan. The listing means sanctions from China against the Raytheon Missiles & Defense, including “a fine equal to twice the value of the arms that RMD has sold to Taiwan since September 2020.” Raytheon’s most recent year-end report also indicated that China decided to sanction the company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Gregory Hayes in connection with sales activity with Taiwan.

In the past couple of weeks Raytheon and Northrop Grumman received a number of contract modifications from the Defense Department. They include the following:

Raytheon was awarded a $219,867,079 modification to a contract for the production of 155 mm Excalibur Increment Ib projectiles. The funds are coming from the U.S. Army.

Raytheon and Lockheed Martin were awarded an $18,946,203 contract modification for contractor support services for the Javelin Weapon System. Work will be performed in Tucson, with an estimated completion date of Feb. 28, 2024. Funds are coming from the U.S. Army.

Raytheon and Lockheed Martin were also awarded a separate $13,541,544 contract modification for engineering services for the Javelin Missile System. Work will be performed in Tucson, with an estimated completion date of Jan. 31, 2024.

Separately, Northrop Grumman in Chandler was awarded a $48,192,076 firm-fixed-price modification to a previously awarded agreement to continue to develop and refine its Glide Phase Interceptor concept during the Materiel Solutions Analysis Phase. The modification extends work through July of this year. Funds are coming from the Missile Defense Agency. The Glide Phase Interceptor project is also a joint effort between Raytheon and Northrop Grumman. The two companies won enhanced contracts for that work in the summer of 2022. By

FEED THE BEAST

Automation keeps the NHP running. Day and night.

Nothing is sweeter than the sound of a spindle making chips, especially when it’s the high-performance spindle found on one of our NHP Series of Compact Horizontal Machining Centers. These workhorses can handle whatever you throw at them, and are always asking for more.

That’s where our Linear Pallet System (LPS) comes in. It feeds the NHP around the clock, which leaves nothing but pallets upon pallets of precise, ready-to-ship parts. And if floor space is a concern, the Rotary Pallet System (RPS) will fit right in.
