Craig's Corner
It's been a very positive summer for Pacific. We have won another P/M part-of-the-year competition, we improved Pacific with our intensified efforts with lean manufacturing. With the acquisitions of Superwear Technology® and P/M Krupp Technologies, we are adding a wide array of materials and process technologies to better serve you.  

Superwear has added 11 new fully dense titanium carbide wear materials for your most demanding wear applications. Titanium carbide is a material that has higher hardness and offers a much lower coefficient of friction than tungsten carbide. This material is also very unique due to its toughness and ability to be machined in the annealed state.

P/M Krupp has added 10 new fully dense materials to Pacific's current line of M2, T15, and D2 high-speed and tool steels. The new Pacific lineup will include 17-4PH and 440C stainless steels, M4, M35, M42, and T42 high-speed steels. We are also producing a low alloy steel and a high carbon steel, which are fully dense.

Additionally, the P/M Krupp acquisition adds five years of development efforts and a customer base for our PolyAlloys metal injection molding division. We welcome you to see some of the new and interesting components that we mold as a result. Perhaps this will give you some ideas for that difficult-to-engineer component that you have been developing.

We are very pleased with the changes we are making at Pacific in regard to lean manufacturing. The changes are having a dramatic and positive effect on our business. It is making us a stronger partner for you, now and in the future. Manufacturing is changing and restructuring on a worldwide basis. We intend to stay ahead of these changes to enhance the value we offer you.

If you are a current customer, we appreciate your business. If you are a potential customer, find out what we can do for you—you will be positively surprised. Also, note that P/M technology has changed dramatically over the last decade. It is time to give us a second look.

We have worked hard to expand our capabilities. It may be that the expensive parts you are casting or machining would offer you a better value proposition if we were producing it. Give us a chance to look at it and meet with your engineers. You will be pleased with the outcome.
