The phenomena known
as "Adiabatic Softening" was first observed in
World War II when scientists discovered that piercing several inches of
armor plates at extreme velocities produced clean holes with little distortion
to the surrounding area.
In the 1960's, in
an effort to study and further develop adiabatic softening, researchers
relied on explosive to achieve the necessary ram velocities. This approach
was not only slow, but was exceedingly dangerous. Eventually the process
was all but abandoned as being a "non-commercial" area of interest.
LMC's successful development
of the adiabatic process depended, in large part, on our ability to control
energy. That is why, when a customer discusses our patented adiabatic
process with us, we talk about "energy" output and not
