The mission of TacFab (Tactical Metal Fabrication System) is to provide the US Army with a containerized and transportable system to support the warfighter by deploying an on-demand, cast part manufacturing capability. TacFab is a deployable, in-theater system to rapidly manufacture cast parts through precision reverse engineering that captures part geometry and metal composition and leverages computer controlled technical data to produce the same form, fit and function of the needed part.
TacFab consists of containerized Engineering and Production Complexes that can be integrated with other manufacturing and engineering systems at DoD, Commercial and other locations. The Engineering Complex includes 3D laser modeling technology, Metal Analyzer, Computer Aided Design tools, Technical Data Package management and Pattern Printer. The Production Complex includes Ferrous and non-Ferrous melters, Mold Making equipment, Finishing equipment, and Heat Treating capabilities.
