Standex Supplies Components for Joint Strike Fighter Program
As the Joint Strike Fighter program moved off the drawing board and into prototypes and production, Standex / Magnetico has been there supplying parts. But more importantly, we've been a resource to suggest ideas, provide engineering expertise and assistance, and then back this up in our industry leading environmental test lab. We know that in addition to looking good on paper, it must perform in the field. To ensure this performance, we prove them in the lab first.
With decades of meeting Mil-Specs and earning our way onto Mil PRF-27 and QPL (Qualified Products Lists), our engineering team understands how critical weight and space is to the industry. We understand both the electronics of the application and the mechanical aspects to allow it to succeed in harsh environments. We understand what can be done, and then we find a way to come up with a workable solution. The culmination of this experience and mindset helps projects like the Joint Strike Fighter succeed.
When you are designing the most advanced jet fighter in the world, you never want to hear "you're grounded." That's why they trust Standex. And they "don't leave the Earth without it."
Space & Satellite Expertise Aids Companies Closer to Home
For years Standex and their Magnetico group have been supplying components for NASA programs and satellite manufacturers. Now the engineering and testing that has helped these missions to succeed is helping companies whose focus is closer to the ground. Or rather under the ground — deep under the ground.
For components to achieve success in the harsh demands of outer space they must be meticulously designed, engineered to work for years in extremely tight spaces, built to exacting specs, and then proven in the industry's leading test lab. The environment in outer space is harsh and demanding — and remote — so getting it right the first time is critical. The same can be said of underground drilling, where in the hole environments are severe. That's why they trust Standex to help them achieve success the first time.
