Since 1972, TRI MODELS has been designing and fabricating wind tunnel models — from military aircraft and missiles to business jets, passenger airliners and space vehicles. Although computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has revolutionized aircraft design, our customers rely on TRI MODELS wind tunnel models to gather the precise, real-world data they count on to augment and verify results. Wind tunnel models allow you to evaluate, modify, perfect and enhance designs, ensuring the quality and safety of the product you put your company’s name on.
TRI MODELS offers the extensive expertise of eight highly trained engineers with over six decades of experience in wind tunnel model design. Our team is also comprised of five quality assurance experts, seven CNC programmers, seven office/management professionals, and more than 60 manufacturing and support specialists who all aim to exceed your expectations. We work closely with your own engineering specialists and maintain close relationships with your technical staff throughout the project.
Our reputation is built upon a strong commitment to providing customers with a high quality model, on schedule and at a reasonable cost.
No one in the industry comes close to the resources, equipment and technology that go into each TRI MODELS project. Our leading-edge machinery includes fully integrated 3,4 and 5-axis CNC milling machines, an electronic discharge machining center, CNC lathes and more. We are capable of working with almost any materials or metals including exotics like Inconel, Niobium, Hastelloy as well as fiberglass and other cold-cure composites. We are constantly evaluating and upgrading our software & equipment as technology improvements enable us to provide the customer with higher quality products as well as reduce cost & schedule. We have a vast array of suppliers and partners that enable us to meet some of the more unique customer requests such as carbon-composites, oven brazing, Thermal Barrier Coating and various types of Rapid Prototyping.
