Design & Manufacturing Engineering

Keystone Engineering has complete capability for the design-to specification of critical machined and welded spacecraft and aircraft assemblies and systems. By working with our customers from the beginning of a project Keystone Engineering is able to provide valuable design-to-process input relative to manufacturing processes to be employed and validating design producibility.
Our highly skilled engineering and manufacturing team acts as an extension of our customer’s capabilities providing final design, manufacturing, quality control, installation, testing, documentation, and compliance with all other requirements as defined in the customer’s specification and Statement of Work. This means designs that include preparation and delivery of 3-D solid models of the final configuration, and preparation of manufacturing drawings and process documentation. Also included is the analysis to support all design, functional performance and service life requirements of the specification. As required, Keystone Engineering can perform finite element analysis, fatigue analysis, and thermal analysis in development of designs using the most up-to-date analysis tools available. Additional analytical capabilities include failure modes and effects analysis and physics of failure analysis.
