Technology Development

Being in the highly competitive and very technical Gas Turbine Hot Section Components manufacturing business, Hi-Tek must stay on the leading edge of process and equipment development. Many times our customers need processes / applications that exceed what is commercially available. Hi-Tek continuously strives to improve, develop or invent ways to meet these customer's desires. Some of these are listed below:

  • Drilling round or shaped cooling holes through Thermal Barrier Coatings
  • Fast Hole machines that outperform what is commercially available through multiple proprietary innovations.
  • Development of simpler and faster proprietary programming techniques for multi-axis CBN Grinders.
  • EDM'ing of non-hole features through Thermal Barrier Coatings
