The tooling design and fabrication teams allow F&B to be agile and responsive to customer and production needs thereby reducing lead times and entry into service.
In collaboration with customers, F&B engineers participate in product design to ensure manufacturability and production efficiency.
F&B’s unique expertise in complex sheet metal fabrication creates opportunities for parts which are currently cast, hogged or forged, including material reduction and faster manufacturing, all while maintaining structural integrity.
From 1923 to today, F&B continues to support legacy customers and products. This support includes tool maintenance and production readiness.
