Lancer engineers are experts in lightweight composite material design and application. The realm of composites, which includes thermoplastics, thermosets, and ceramic-matrix materials, sometimes offers intrinsic material properties superior to metal. Areas of potential advantage include weight, stiffness-to-weight ratio, self-lubricity, thermal and/or electrical insulation, performance at extreme temperatures (both cryogenic and > 2500°F) and manufacturing cost. Lancer’s breadth of composites materials and processes experience gives us the ability to identify opportunities for which composites offer advantages to metal, and to design and select appropriate solutions for these applications.
Lancer’s market focus is application engineering, rapid prototyping and production volumes typical of Defense applications.
