So what happened so that we can now produce computers that fit just about everywhere, minuscule computers with more than a thousand times more power than the computer that put a man on the moon? Material science, that’s what.

Material science found ways to create super-alloys that gave us semiconductors and integrated circuitry tinier than can be seen by the human eye.  The Arc Melter shown here can produce heat up to 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit, a temperature at which the atomic structure changes – the foundation for many of these developments.

That’s a lot of heat that requires an immense amount of power and infrastructure.  That’s what Frank H. Stowell & Sons does, we build the infrastructure for this to happen.  We’re also experienced enough to perform this work safely and to produce finished products robust enough to “take the heat”.
