Our Services

Metal Finishing

MIL offers numerous metal finishing processes. These methods improve the surface finish of a material. After finishing, parts may have improved performance in specific environments, abrasion resistance, color dyes, etc.


MIL features a wide variety of coating types. The aim of applying coatings is to improve surface properties of a material. The appearance, adhesion, wetability, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, scratch resistance, etc., of a part can be upgraded. They may be applied as liquids, gases or solids.

Nondestructive Testing

Nondestructive testing, or NDT, is a valuable and useful process, as it does not require the disassembly, dissection, or general sacrifice of a part or material.


Welding is the melting and fusing together of two items using the heat of an electric arc. The main welding processes used at MIL are Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) and Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW).

Surface Enhancement

MIL provides the shot peen process to accompany our other capabilities, serving the aerospace, medical, and power generation industries. We currently have two machines online with additional capacity forthcoming.
