Design, Development and Fabrication

As a strategic defense industrial base services provider, TYAD recognizes the need for enhanced design and development engineering services to support evolving communications platforms developed across the Armed Forces.

The listing below highlight's some of the specific capabilities Tobyhanna Army Depot has to offer:

  • Capability to produce mechanical and electrical designs for singular items all the way up to full systems. Completed designs include programs like Army NETT Warrior cables, Marine Corps  Ground Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) Power Equipment Group, and Army Bridge Supplemental Set.
  • TYAD processes skilled engineers to support Technical Data Development of all kinds. From creating new Level 3 Drawing packages to make a system manufacturable to refreshing exist sting technical data. Capability to use Computer Aided Design software such as CREO and AutoCAD to generate either two dimensional models or 3 dimensional models.
  • Finite Element Analysis capability for validating designs before production in mechanical assemblies or fluid flow scenarios.
  • Prototype development facility for hands on application of engineering concepts, validating design choices, and fabrication of prototypes. Equipped with all the necessary tooling to support electrical and mechanical design work.
  • Polymer additive manufacturing capabilities for rapid prototyping, custom fixturing, tooling and molds, and end item parts.
  • Diverse and experienced group of Manufacturing engineers to support shop floor processes in the machining, sheet metal, welding, cable fabrication, fabric, and painting/plating/refinishing shops. This can include anything from creating part programming for CNC machines to trouble shooting issues on the fabrication line to developing new capability.
  • Tools and experience to performing reverse engineering on items such as mechanical piece parts and sub-assemblies, specialized cabling, and power systems.
