NASA Report

IKONICS AMS Precision Abrasive Machining capabilities align with NASA test results to reduce drag on acoustic liners.


IKONICS AMS is the leader in non traditional solutions


Our Process allows us to machine carbon fiber, Kevlar, Fiberglass, and Ceramics.


Ability to machine through holes and features to depth on sapphire wafers and other brittle substrates. Shapes can include circles, slots, and pockets.


Precision Abrasive Machining is a process that only IKONICS AMS can produce.

IKONICS Advanced Material Solutions

IKONICS Advanced Material Solutions uses Precision Abrasive Machining (PAM), a non-traditional machining process. PAM can support a diverse array of features in materials, such as; carbon fiber, fiberglass, silicon, ceramics, Kevlar®, Borofloat® and sapphire. PAM advantages include perforations in any shape, high precision repeat-ability, no stress or defects common in conventional machining, complex curve capabilities, flexible & rapid design changes, no secondary machining processes needed & perforations have clean edges with no burrs, spurs, burning or pulled fibers. PAM also provides acoustical sound & weight reduction benefits to composites.
