Paragon manufacturers turbomachinery components including impellers, blisks, stators and diffusers; multi-spindle milling and grinding of compressor and turbine blade and vanes; and high speed milling of complementary components.
The company is a major participant in programs including the space shuttle, evolved expendable launch vehicles, satellites, missile systems and high performance military gas turbine engines.
Paragon uses many of NCL's features such as its family of parts capabilities with discrete tool control. Terry states, "Machining of these turbomachinery components is extremely difficult and you need total control of what the cutting tool is doing at all times. NCL gives us that control.".

"We have made substantial investments in the constantly changing technology of CAD/CAM, using the NCL programming system, along with CNC five-axis machining centers. This combination of program and machine is designed for the fabrication of high performance, complex shaped, close tolerance parts from exotic materials."
