DELIVERING PROCUREMENT SOLUTIONS - Casting conversion of a 28-piece weldment to reduce lead time, lower cost, and increase quality - the fundamentals of warfighter readiness

The CAST-IT™ team provided assistance to the U.S. Army Armament Research Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC), Picatinny Arsenal, in material selection, design review quality assurance parameters, and vendor source selection for prototypes. The new cast steel cradle extension will improve the strength and durability, reduce initial production and lifecycle cost, and remain weight neutral.

"AMRDEC's partnership with UAB and AMC's CAST-IT™ Team brought the necessary technical expertise to the table. This project was a success.”
