Reinventing The Future of Cold ExpansionTM
PartWorks is a PHX Company
PartWorks is currently under contract with the US Air Force for test and evaluation of innovative methods for restoring life in aircraft structures exhibiting mild to severe corrosion in fastener holes, while providing definitive validation of the repair. Our tools and software will provide definitive validation of the process for each hole eliminating the costly and laborious steps typically deployed to address these issues.
For new production, there are no limits to our potential for outstanding collaborative efforts. We are well-positioned to relieve pressure points to OEM supply chains in the areas of machined or stamped parts and select high interference fit bushings, and rivetless nutplates mechanically and adhesively installed.

PartWorks has assembled a team of some of the world’s most knowledgeable experts in the field of cold expansion, aircraft structural repair and life extension.
Dale was most recently a Business Development Manager at Fatigue Technology covering Fixed Wing and Rotary wing aircraft and managed the Airbus UK account for four years. Additionally, Dale had an eight-year stint with Fairchild Fasteners / Alcoa Fastening Systems in applications engineering and sales management. During his nine-year career at NAVAIR, he developed type specification requirements for mechanical assemblage systems and bearings for the V-22 Osprey and F/A-18E/F Super Hornet aircraft as well as other NAVAIR Cat I acquisition programs.
Mike had a 25-year career as the Division Head of Structures at NAVIR. During his tenure, Mike oversaw all activities related to airframe acquisition including airframe type specification design requirements, development, validation, loads, full-scale fatigue testing, fleet safety of flight and air worthiness issues. Since that time, Mike has provided consulting services throughout the Aerospace community and is very active and well-known to the structural life extension and new design communities alike. Mike has been at the center of innovation in aircraft repair and cold expansion for over 40 years,and has co-authored four PartWorks patent applications to-date.
Doug was most recently a Materials and Process Engineer in the Mechanical Parts Standards group within Boeing Research and Technology. Doug supported The Boeing Company for standard part bushings and washers, as well as materials and processes related to solid film lubricants, anti-seize materials, and self-lubricating liner systems. Prior to his eight years with Boeing, Doug had a 22-year career at Fatigue Technology as a Sr. Applications Engineer designing fatigue enhancement bushings, rivetless nutplates, and cold working processes and tooling. Doug is the co-author of seven patents related to cold expansion tooling and fastener design.
