PRECISION METAL CUTTING

Our top-of-the line cutting machines can produce parts of all shapes, sizes and thicknesses with tight tolerances.

Every piece of armor is precisely cut on our CNC operated Tanaka laser cutting stations. This keeps part dimensions accurate and tolerances tight between armor plates, resulting in better protection.

Large Parts, Tight Tolerances, Well Engineered Products

PRECISION BENDING

With the latest in equipment technology, IF Armor International offers a powerful choice of bending solutions. We have Precision CNC press brakes that can handle a multitude of parts of all sizes and thicknesses starting with one of our most dynamic, the LVD 2,000 ton – 40’– fully automated CNC press brake.

The LVD is one of the only fully automated CNC press brakes in the southeast with this capacity. It starts with a CNC programmable front/rear back gauge, laser angle checking device and lastly, an ejecting device for side-ejecting large parts.

ROBOTIC WELDING

The Fusion Arc 180L is designed for MIG/MAG welding, TIG welding, Tandem MAG welding, Aluminum MIG welding, and Plasma Arc Cutting. The 180L comes standard with 3 individual weld stations. This arrangement is well suited for a broad range of applications including small, stationary parts that may require welding on one or more sides, nested arrangements of like or dissimilar parts grouped into a fixture, or medium
size parts and/or assemblies.

For larger parts and/or assemblies, the larger 180L includes the same layout and design while providing expanded space for the part or assembly size and robotic reach.

Machinery

• (2) Capital/Dahan Robotic welders with 3 workstations and index fixture tables

• (1) Capital/Dahan Robotic welders with rotary and index fixture table

EXPERIENCE

Our experience in dealing with the nuances of unique armor components as required by the U.S. Military has honed our skills and positioned IF Armor International as the complete armoring source.

BALLISTIC PROTECTION

IF Armor International provides ballistic solutions to protect against threats including CEN, NIJ, and STANAG protection levels. We can help decide a protection level given the vehicle type and environmental exposure.

IF Armor’s goal is to manufacture the safest solutions to keep our war fighters safe. We do this by using the best strategies in design and production. To reduce weld joints which weaken armor, large sections of armor are used. IF Armor’s large format laser cutters allow for larger core panels. Larger parts mean fewer welds which ultimately results in better protection. The protection solution is a culmination of experience and testing
found at IF Armor.

Tactical and OEM style interiors are available.
