Questions for Customer

Intellectual Property Considerations

Wyman Gordon has provided our team with proprietary information regarding die shape geometries, die press layouts and schematics, as well as recorded video of the forging process. This data has been analyzed and incorporated into our design to prevent accidental conflicts with system layout and/or physical/visual obstruction for the operators.

Upon delivery of our system, we will return all provided resources and copies to Wyman Gordon. None of the provided resources will appear in any documentation produced by Team P12556.
