Factor 55 products are designed and manufactured using state of the art technologies. All of our products are designed using SolidWorks CAD systems and stress analyzed using COSMOS Finite Element Simulation software. The FEA results allow us to optimize a design concept by adding or removing material or changing material properties where necessary.We then validate our theoretical results by instrumenting and destructively testing prototypes of all of our product designs. This is conducted at a test and measurement facility that is also certified for National Defense Department rigging and hoist testing.
Most of our products are manufactured right here in Idaho within a 10 mile radius. Both the ProLink and Winch Lock bolts are manufactured from CNC machined billet material â€“ no cheap castings or forgings for us.
At Factor 55 we don't believe in engineering compromises. That's why we produce all of our products from aerospace quality materials. From 6000 and 7000 series aluminums, to 6AL-4V titanium double shear pins, we strive to offer you the very best designs made from the very best materials.
