Security Lab



Picatinny Arsenal




The facility is uniquely equipped as the only laboratory within DA to conduct PM processing of refractory metals and alloys as well as the processing of a wide range of ferrous and non-ferrous alloys. The capability includes a broad range of furnaces/temperatures. Its consolidation equipment includes uniaxial compaction presses (up to 500 tons) and isostatic presses for cold and hot operation. The facility also possesses mechanical alloying equipment, as well as a plasma powder processing and material characterization capability. Extensive processing is conducted at this facility on advanced tungsten alloys for kinetic energy penetrator applications.
