Anniston Army Depot (ANAD) to host 2019 Remanufacturing Conference

ANAD will host a Remanufacturing Conference on November 19, 2019 to bring together suppliers of technical services/products which can improve ANAD’s role as a readiness provider and sustainer of combat power. This event will be by invitation only. Interested parties must submit a 2019 Industry Conference Interest Form to be considered. ANAD is a secure facility and all parties must be properly vetted through a background check prior to entrance.

Potential guest speakers will include ANAD Commander and Deputy Commander, as well as representatives from Army Material Command, Army Contracting Command-Warren (ACC-Warren), TACOM, ANAD Production Engineering, and the Army’s Ground Vehicle Systems Center. Key briefings will include ANAD capabilities, public private partnering process, contracting/procurement actions, and areas of focused interest/process improvement. Tours will be provided to demonstrate ANAD’s capability and identify production/process improvement opportunities.

Desired technologies and processes include:

  • Surfacing and resurfacing of legacy parts
  • New methods of manufacturing/remanufacturing technologies into the production operations of combat/tactical vehicles/weapons systems. Examples; cold spray, additive manufacturing for the remanufacturing of parts (not 3D printing)
  • Replacements for hard chromium plating
  • Replacements of hex chromium in plating/chemical cleaning processes
  • Closed loop chemical cleaning operations for waste stream and air emissions
  • Training/qualification/certification for new technologies
  • State of the art inspection/scanning/measurement systems for parts and vehicle hulls
  • Solution Engineering to remanufacturing
  • New vs. remanufacturing solutions
  • Improved tooling and programing on the production floor
  • Automated work cells:
  • Machining cell with multiple machines and material handling systems
  • Robotic/automated blasting
  • Robotic/automated painting
  • Robotic/automated wash rack
  • Robotic/automated welding
  • Robotic/automated assembly
  • Robotic/automated plating
  • Robotic/automated chemical cleaning
  • Automated measurement
