Today’s US warfighters are carrying equipment that can weigh more than 100 pounds – a burden that reduces their mobility and can result in increased casualties. To improve the warfighter’s safety and effectiveness, defense contractors need to lighten the load: design and manufacture equipment that is lighter, stronger and provides a broader range of functionality.
More defense contractors are using metal to plastic conversion services to capitalize on plastic’s important advantages: much lower weight, freedom of design and assembly, superior durability, ease of finish and lower TCO.
Register to receive Kaysun’s white paper, “Lightening the Load: How Plastics Can Improve the Safety and Effectiveness of Our Warfighters,” and learn:
- the key benefits provided by today’s advanced plastics,
- the best practices in material selection, part design and mold making,
- how Kaysun clients Rockwell Collins and ATK/Textron used plastics for their lightweight handheld GPS and munitions devices.
