In 2014, FT began development of the ExtruMach, a tool-free extrusion machining technology, embodied in XtruMach (XM) CNC milling machines that utilizes a precision controlled universal feeding fixture for supporting and guiding curved extrusions while they are drilled, trimmed or profiled in one setup. 

 

During a PH I feasibility study with the Army, the XM technology was selected as a technology of interest to further develop and demonstrate in the current SBIR PH II that was awarded December 2022. FT has been hard at work developing XM-3 to meet Army capability needs, and is nearing completion of the XM-3 MVP machine to be demonstrated at the WITS show in October 2023

Stay tuned for more updates on the development of our new machining technologies
