March 27, 2006
Omni-Lite Industries Canada Inc. has received several new orders in the aerospace and military divisions. The aerospace orders are from a long-term customer based in Southern California. These components are used in next-generation composite airframes produced by both commercial and military suppliers. The military orders are for a new customer that began purchasing Omni-Lite's products in late 2005.
Omni-Lite is also pleased to announce that it has received its third automated inspection system. Acceptance trials were completed on March 14, 2006. The system successfully inspected up to 300 parts per minute at tolerances exceeding the customer's requirements. "This advanced inspection system gives Omni-lite the ability to insure zero defect deliveries of a critical component manufactured for the U.S. Military and NATO," stated John Sidener, manager of quality assurance. "The successful implementation of this system validates the company's concept of utilizing computer-controlled manufacturing, automated inspection and packaging by robotic techniques."
The automotive division is pleased to announce that the transmission components under life cycle testing at a major Tier 1 automotive supplier have successfully met the requirements imposed by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customer. These components have been submitted to the OEM customer in Detroit for final approval.
Omni-Lite's associated company, Omni-Lite E-FORM Technologies Inc., has received a new purchase order from a large aerospace manufacturer in Southern California. Under this contract E-FORM will process material and manufacture components from unique nanostructured materials. It is expected that this work will continue for several years. To enable E-FORM to further evaluate and refine the products being developed, E-FORM is in the final stages of purchasing a scanning electron microscope that will include significant capabilities to study grain boundaries, grain orientation and chemical composition. The scanning electron microscope will allow the study of the nanomaterials being developed at magnifications of up to 100,000X, significantly boosting the company's in-house laboratory capabilities. E-FORM has also purchased a laboratory heat treat and annealing furnace. The total cost of this equipment is approximately $250,000 (U.S.).
