Mechanical Design and Fabrication at Optical Tolerances


Mechanical Design and Fabrication at Optical Tolerances – Salvo Defense, in an effort to further vertically integrate its supply chain, has recently added mechanical design services and metal fabrication to its already diverse product offering.  By adding full-time mechanical engineering support along with brand new Haas turning stations Salvo Defense has positioned itself as a fully integrated design and manufacturing partner for today’s most demanding applications.

Its rare to find machining companies that understand optical tolerances.  It’s also rare to find optical components and lens manufacturers that have in house mechanical design and metal fabrication.  Salvo Defense now has both.  From napkin sketches to completed assemblies delivered in large quantities Salvo Defense has got you covered.  Specializing in niche markets such as micro-optics and short wave infrared (SWIR) lenses Salvo Defense is making it easier on prime contractors by addressing pain points in their supply chains all while allowing them to reduce their vendor base by providing multiple value-added operations across a diverse product offering.

Established in 2012, Salvo Defense is a full-service contract designer and manufacturer of electro-optical assemblies as well as sensing and imaging platforms with a specialization in multispectral systems.  The company manufactures high-end equipment and gear for military and police forces.  It emphasizes innovative materials and designs that solve problems others can’t.  As the design and R&D arm of the Salvo Technologies Inc family of companies, Salvo Defense can leverage the production capabilities of its sister organizations like Salvo Coatings and Salvo Electro-Optics.  It can also tap the sales organizations of the other business units to conceptualize new products and reach customers globally through their distribution.
