Three decades of designing, analyzing and fabricating custom composite prototypes and products to support cutting edge technologies.

WHO WE ARE

We are a design and analysis engineering firm specializing in composite structures. Our services include assistance with the design process, expert finite element analysis (FEA), guidance for cost effective manufacturing approaches and processes, and fabrication of prototypes and low productions runs. We utilize Solidworks and CATIA software for our design work, and perform finite element analysis using ANSYS and Abaqus.

Composite engineering combines the use of carbon, glass, and Kevlar fibers with a wide variety of thermoset and thermoplastic matrix materials to produce often stronger and lighter structural and/or functional properties not present in any individual component. Osprey’s composite experience goes beyond polymer matrix composites (PMCs) to include metal and ceramic matrix composites (MMC and CMC).

WHO WE HELP

Corporations

 

We perform composite design and analysis for a range of companies, from those that make aircraft such as rockets and airplanes, to companies that develop energy sources such as wind turbines.

Government Entities

 

Our clients support entities such as NASA and the Air Force in endeavors that include analyzing the primary structure joints for the Antares launch vehicle, and performing thermal-structural analysis of projects such as a cruise missile composite radome or a rocket engine’s combustion chamber.

Entrepreneurs

 

We assist entrepreneurs with design formulations based on needed strength and weight, fabrication method and tooling process guidance, fabrication of prototypes and small development runs.

Osprey Technologies Opens New Michigan Manufacturing Facility

Sault Sainte Marie, MI – Osprey Technologies owner Dave Crockett has expanded Osprey’s manufacturing and fabricating capabilities to the upper Midwest. Osprey Technologies specializes in:

  • Fabrication of composite structures using thermoset resins (wet layup and prepreg) and any reinforcement fiber from tows, uni-tapes, fabrics, mats, and felts.
  • Fabrication of sandwich core structures with core materials ranging from foam to honeycomb core
  • Fabrication of patterns, soft tools (tooling board), composite tools, and nonferrous metal tools.  Machining done on 3 axis CNC with 5′ x 10′ vacuum table
