The aerospace and defense industries require products with the highest levels of precision, accuracy, durability and reliability for the safe operation of aviation equipment to protect the lives of flight crew, passengers and soldiers on commercial and private aircraft and interstellar spacecraft (including space shuttles and satellites). Components and parts used in aerospace or military applications must be leak tight and temperature resistant to withstand the harsh operating conditions where they are subjected to extreme temperatures, pressures, stresses and vibrations. They also must also be manufactured within tight tolerances to achieve and maintain precision and exceptionally low failure rates to keep the machinery running smoothly for long periods of time. The slightest miscalculation can cause component and system failures in critical applications, resulting in severe consequences.
