PAM

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

NASA Report

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

Wafers

Machine through holes and features to depth on sapphire wafers and other brittle substrates (circles, slots, and pockets)

In observance of Thanksgiving, IKONICS offices will be closed Thursday, November 26 and Friday, November 27. Have a safe holiday!

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.
