| Engineering and Design

The FMH Aerospace team manages the engineering and design process, from development to manufacturing introduction. 
We work closely with our customers to determine product and performance requirements, define specifications, and design or co-design each product.
We then analyze materials selection and testing, prepare stress analysis, compile test procedures, and perform failure analysis, to create complete tooling and testing rig designs to ensure production meets or exceeds customer specifications.
In most cases, we develop prototypes to validate product performance prior to manufacture.  Our unique testing and analysis tools and methods allow for optimized designs and products, with all tooling and test rigs designed and fabricated in-house for speed and precision.
Our technical strengths include bellows design; application specific assemblies optimizing weld joints, flex joints and contour; weld joint designs tailored to facilitate welding speed and quality; and braid design, using our in-house custom-built analytical tool.
