Military

Trinity Forge and Machine has many decades of experience serving multiple segments of the military/defense industry. OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers of missile systems, munitions, land vehicles, marine vessels, space systems, and military aircraft trust Trinity Forge and Machine for its forging, machining and assembly services. With extensive experience serving the military/defense industry, Trinity Forge and Machine’s staff regularly trained on relevant regulatory compliance measures, including adherence to ITAR regulations and export control restrictions. Our quality system is mature and IT systems robust.

We forge and machine most major alloys commonly seen in the military/defense industry, including carbon and micro-alloy steel, stainless steel, nickel-based alloys, titanium and aluminum.

To respond to the military/defense’s industries recent push to achieve both cost savings and better quality parts simultaneously, Trinity Forge and Machine has retrofitted its range of hydraulic forging hammers with computer-controlled programmable controls. These controls automate the forging process, allowing for net or near-net forgings (holding tolerances as tight as +/- 5 thousandths of an inch) manufactured with extremely consistent mechanical properties while also greatly reducing production cycle times. With this industry-leading technology, Trinity Forge and Machine offers built-to-print forgings from approx. 3 oz. to 165 lbs. in net weight.

Trinity Forge and Machine also maintains a PhD Metallurgist on-staff, allowing customers to rest assured that any unique material, heat treatment, testing or other processing specifications will be fully understood and successfully adhered to. Trinity Forge and Machine performs a wide-range of pre-and-post forging operations in-house. We also maintain strong relationships with a diverse range of NADCAP-approved subcontractors to partner with for any processes not carried out in-house.

Trinity Forge and Machine also offers precision machining, fabrication and mechanical or welding assembly services. The equipment mix is regularly modified to ensure an ability to offer the turnkey finished metal components customers demand at that moment.

Trinity Forge and Machine’s well-staffed engineering department is involved with all projects from the quotation stage to the actual production process, including design-to-manufacturability and define-to-cost exercises. The engineers are intimately familiar with the most common 3D CAD/CAM modeling systems, as well as DEFORM, the most comprehensive forging simulation software on the market. Our technical team is available for conference calls or in-person “lunch and learns” if deemed useful by our customers.
