Slot perforations using the PAM process reduce drag without impact to acoustic performance


IKONICS AMS is a leader in non-traditional machining solutions


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


Machine through holes and features to depth on sapphire wafers and other brittle substrates (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, Kevlar®, CMC’s, silicon carbide, sapphire, glass, alumina, graphite and many others. 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.
