Aerospace and Defense Precision Polymer Machining
EPTAM manufactures performance-critical polymer components. Our team provides machined, engineer-selected polymer materials that must perform to the most exacting standards in the industry.
With their high strength-to-weight ratios, advanced polymers can withstand the extreme temperatures found at high altitudes and offer a non-corrosive base with low water absorption allowing for natural buoyancy.
Quality systems and specialized polymer machining equipment are essential for meeting industry demand.
EPTAM provides engineered polymer solutions in:
- Metal-to-polymer conversions
- Polymer design support
- Contract polymer manufacturing
- Quick-turn cell for polymer prototypes
- Specialized packaging
Flight applications, low friction, high strength, and temperature stability are often important reasons why aerospace polymers are used. For underwater simulations of in-space operations, plastics do not corrode and provide neutral buoyancy for realistic practice sessions.
