A. S. Thomas, Inc. is a high technology firm with over 50 years of research, engineering and manufacturing experience. The following are a few of the products developed by A. S. Thomas, Inc.

 

NUFORM Level-II
NUFORM Level-II provides a higher order system for manufacturing all types of of complex parts requiring continuous multi-axis motion, 3 through 6 (or more). The following is a small sample of some of the parts which are daily manufactured by users of NUFORM Level-II through-out the world:
The antenna for the C5A was the first example of truly integrated CAE/CAD/CAM. The antenna was designed on the computer, with complete analysis and simulation of its performance. The mold was then automatically designed and part programs created. The project was delivered to the Air Force in 1969.
A precision forging was machined in 1968 to produce fan blades for jet aircraft engines. Each side of the die (male and female) consisted of over 70 surfaces which had to be blended together.
Extrusion die for vinyl siding programmed using the NUFORM System.
3D tantalum impeller machined using 5-axis continuous motion by NUFORM Level-II.
Completed tire mold master programmed using NUFORM Level-I and Level-II.
Blisc's and Impellers machined using NUFORM Level-II.
Turbine blades machined using NUFORM Level-II. Blade on the left is a gas turbine stator ground to finish via a NUFORM EXPERT SYSTEM on a high performance 6-axis CNC belt grinder. Blade on the right is a steam turbine bucket milled to a 16 micro-inch finish in one pass! Blade on the left is a gas turbine rotor milled to finish from a rough forging in one pass to a 16 mirco-inch finish (.4 micro-meter finish)! The machined blades were produced at high speed, in one pass, using the patented THOMAS MILL, and THOMAS machining methods.
