Rig Fabrication and Assembly
H&B Tool has resources
unlike most small machine shops. There are three service
bays, 25 feet x 55 feet each; one with a dual monorail
hoist system capable of lifting up to 20 tons. This
set-up allows H&B Tool to handle large rig assemblies
while leaving room for instrumentation technicians
to perform additional operations without interference.

H&B Tool does 95% of required
heat-treating on many different alloys. A wide array
of silver, gold and nichrome brazing is also done on
the premises. Our success at heat treat and brazing
enables us to provide a quality product and shortened
H&B’s full-time staff of
trained instrumentation technicians are responsible for
developing the machined raw products into finely tuned
temperature or pressure sensors. This fully equipped
department can handle single thermocouple and pressure
sensors to complete flight quality probe assemblies;
one-piece experimental specialty items to a monthly production
Our strain gage lab
offers a full range of strain gage applications – from
sub zero, using epoxy cements, to the hostile environment
of gas turbines requiring a Rokide flame spray installation.
Our customers’ needs vary from military to commercial,
on rotating to non-rotating hardware, and we are equipped
to meet all needs.
Embedment of Pressure
and Temperature Sensors
H&B Tool and Engineering is one
of the leaders in the aerospace industry involving embedding
thermocouples and pressures sensors via brazing, flame-spraying,
epoxy or wedge wiring. This process allows our customers
to obtain required data without jeopardizing performance.

We are set-up using the latest
Unigraphics software and are capable of importing files
with an .iges, .step, or .dxf extension.
Our welding department has certified
welders capable of welding 3mil thermocouple wire on
experimental test hardware. H&B uses state-of-the-art
equipment to deliver expertly welded components meeting
flight hardware quality requirements. H&B welders
