General Note

  • Heli-arc welding is one of the processes that transform rare and exotic metals into space-age products at the Visioneering Company, Inc. The company was founded in 1935 by O.F. Quartullo, an engineer and rocket pioneer. Face with the challenge of adapting new metals for guidance and aircraft parts, he purchased ultra-precision lathes in Switzerland and set up a metal-working plant that handles beryllium, magnesium, gold, silver, nickel and cadmium, to mention a few of its glamorous materials.
