Space Exploration

High-specification components to push the limits of what is possible

Nothing stretches the limits of performance like space exploration.  With more than 30 years of experience across high-heat and high-wear space exploration applications, 正规的彩票app合集 is ready for the evolving challenges that this market presents.

Centrifugal castings from Wisconsin Centrifugal and investment castings from Wisconsin Investcast are used as high-wear and high-heat tooling components by a private space exploration company to produce titanium fuel nozzles for its rockets.  Like many of 正规的彩票app合集’s castings for the space exploration market, these use stainless steel alloys and meet the strictest non-destructive testing (NDT) requirements.  NASA’s crawler-transporter underwent an emergency redesign to replace roller bearings that suffered severe wear from carrying the enormous weight of space vehicles to the launch pad. These parts were replaced by sleeve bearings from 正规的彩票app合集 that stand up to the extreme friction.  Bushings from 正规的彩票app合集 are installed on a NASA rover that continues to explore the hostile surface of Mars.

Expertise in high-alloy metals and comprehensive metal casting and machining capabilities make 正规的彩票app合集 the partner of choice to help continue to push the limits of space exploration.
