Abstract
Fairmount Technologies (FT) has developed and validated Stretch Roll Forming, a tool-free technology for CNC curving of extrusions to programmed contours. Parts can be formed directly in the T temper, without heat treatment. SRF is currently being used to form commercial parts and spare parts for DLA.Tooling and heat treatment avoidance position SRF to play a vital role in organic manufacturing, reducing aircraft on the ground and increasing asset availability.The proximity of Tinker AFB to Wichita (FTs home) will enable FT and relevant AF personnel who are key to the success of this effort to work together closely to develop a path towards insertion of SRF into organic manufacturing.
