Defense or Military power transfer, propulsion, and other metal-wear components have unique C-64 Military Defensechallenges linked to the extreme conditions that many vehicles, aircraft, and weapons systems are asked to operate in coupled with the ever-increasing demands for reduced sustainment costs and increased readiness.

REM’s ISF®­­­ Process is an isotropic superfinishing process that has been proven to be extremely effective at both increasing the service life of many metal to metal contact power transfer and wear components and in recovering/repairing used, lightly damaged metal components that would otherwise be scrap and require replacement. Thus, the ISF Process is able to reduce sustainment costs by both remediating spare parts into high-performing usable components and derivatively reduce the required spare part inventory.

The ISF Process has a wide range of component applications including gears, engine components, bearings, airfoils, firearm components, and numerous other metal component applications that benefit from reductions in roughness/friction and improvements to surface texture through REM’s unique polishing technology.  Additionally, the ISF®­­­ Surface has been shown to significantly improve fuel efficiency in gear applications; for this reason, REM’s ISF Process was selected to be a featured technology on the FED Alpha (Fuel Efficiency Demonstrator) for the US Army.

With decades of experience in demanding industries just as the Aerospace/Aviation industry and thousands of flight-critical components flying, REM and the ISF Process are well qualified to support the demands of the Military/Defense industry.
