Novel/Agile Processing

Often times, the pacing and cost of introducing new light metal components are overwhelmingly set by the required tools and dies.  New technologies such as incremental forming can eliminate dies entirely and new tool making methods and advanced machining can reduce cost and speed time to deployment.  LIFT is committed to developing these advanced technologies.
