Novel Technology Increases Cutting/Drilling Productivity for Aerospace, Automotive, Commercial, Medical, Military/Defense, Optics and Space Applications
1 August 2012 (Medina, NY, USA) – TREK, INC., a designer and manufacturer of high-voltage amplifiers and electrostatic voltmeters has established a strategic partnership with M4 Sciences LLC which leverages technical strengths from both companies to provide high-productivity ultra-precision machining technology for use in aerospace, automotive, commercial, consumer, industrial, medical, military/defense, optics and space applications.
M4 Sciences (W. Lafayette, Indiana) is a designer and developer of advanced technologies for ultra-precision machining.
8 June 2012 (Medina, NY, USA) – TREK, INC., a designer and manufacturer of high-voltage amplifiers and electrostatic voltmeters, has one of its products onboard a satellite recently launched in Japan.
TREK JAPAN KK, an affiliate of TREK, INC., has been working with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Kyushu Institute of Technology (KIT) to find ways to protect orbiting satellites from damage.
A major contributor to satellite damage is electrostatic discharge (ESD), which many of us experience when touching a light switch after shuffling our feet across a synthetic carpet. This kind of discharge occurs between conducting (metal) and non-conducting (non-metal) materials on a satellite.
(Medina, NY) - Trek has established a new Trek Technology Center in nearby Lockport, NY. Trek’s R&D and Engineering groups now occupy two floors of the recently renovated Canal Street Building in downtown Lockport. This move enables the two groups to work closely together on projects designed to expand the company’s future product offerings. The move also allows Trek to increase production floor space and capacity at its Medina, NY location in response to increased demand for the company’s current products.
“This investment demonstrates Trek’s commitment to technology, innovation and new products which address the evolving needs of our global marketplace. We are well-respected in the markets we serve and look forward to expanding our presence in other markets in the future,” said Michael Dehn, President of TREK, INC.
