Forging Defense Manufacturing Consortium Update

Forging Defense Manufacturing Consortium (FDMC) led a group of 24 Defense Logistics Agency Aviation associates to Lenape Forged Products Corporation, West Chester, PA.  The purpose of the trip was for DLA employees to learn more about forging processes, parts, and the tooling required to make metallic components enabled by the unique combination of mechanical properties afforded through forging.  While in transit from Virginia to Pennsylvania, Walker George, our FORGE-IT Engineer, provided technical information regarding forging processes through presentations and videos piped through the bus. While at Lenape Forged Products, Mr. John Wilbur (President and CEO) provided an overview of the forging industry and Lenape Forge's processes and capabilities. A tour of the facility translated the presentations to action as the participants witnessed forging operations first hand.  Mr. Jim Smith (Operations Manager), Mr. Bob Giancola (Director of Sales), and Mr. Roy Raider (Production Engineer) conducted the tours.   This was the 23rd DLA Aviation tour to a forging facility since May 2003.
