It is common for Domaille Engineering to provide solutions that comprise of mixed technologies. This occurs because as the goals and constraints of a project become understood, the Domaille Engineering team searches for applicable materials and manufacturing technologies that provide the best solution. Sometimes an initially conceived metal part is replaced by a plastic molded part, or a wrought machined part is replaced by a cast part. If metal or plastic 3D printing provides an optimum solution, then Domaille has the design and manufacturing wherewithal to make that happen. On occasion, a material or manufacturing process is changed as the product matures to support automation, volume manufacturing, or competitiveness.

Common mixed technologies used:

  • Machined wrought metals
  • Cast metals
  • Molded plastic
  • Laser welding
  • Friction stir welding
  • Vacuum brazing
  • Fastener-free joining
  • Additive manufacturing (3D printing, metal or plastic)
  • Purchased materials
  • Formed sheet metal
  • Electro-mechanical assembly and test

Assemblies comprising of mixed technology components tend to provide our customers with the best competitive solution.
