SOUTH BEND, IN - Aerojet Rocketdyne, a subsidiary of Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AJRD), has recognized Manufacturing Technology, Inc. (MTI) for its work on the RS-25 rocket engine, a key element of NASA’s space exploration program. MTI was instrumental in the refurbishment of the inertia welder and production inertia welding for the RS-25 Main Injector.
When a 261 metric ton airplane lands or a medivac helicopter is headed to the hospital—that is no time for a critical component to fail.
MTI understands this. That’s why we’re NADCAP* accredited. Our aerospace partners like GE, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce, Boeing, and Honeywell trust the quality of MTI’s welded parts.
SOUTH BEND, IN - Ball Aerospace has recognized Manufacturing Technology, Inc. (MTI) for outstanding technical performance on the TIRS-02 Program, a NASA initiative which uses thermal infrared sensors to measure the Earth’s temperature. MTI played an integral role by joining together titanium and copper for the TIRS-02 Cryocooler, which is used on the Landsat Data Continuity satellite.
“We were thrilled to work with Ball Aerospace and work together to find a joining solution that met their needs” said Mike Laiman, MTI’s Manufacturing Services Business Unit Manager. “Collaboration was key to our success.”
The 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show is running from September 12-17, 2016 in Chicago, IL and MTI is there! We’ll be in the North Building, B Hall (Fabricating & Lasers), Booth N-6014 where we’ll discuss our friction welding technologies and how they can improve your manufacturing processes. Specifically, MTI representatives will talk about our Manufacturing Services program- designed with you in mind.
As a manufacturer, you know there are many inherent risks in the production process. And one of the biggest is down-time. This is especially true for operators of critical equipment like friction welding machines. Whether your business is growing rapidly, you have production needs while your friction welding machine is being built, or your machine will be off line for scheduled maintenance, you can’t afford to slow down. That’s why MTI has developed a unique approach to keep your business up and running, around the clock.
It’s a common problem that engineers and designers face nearly every day – how to join two separate components into a single part. This problem becomes more complex if the components are each made of a different material or have unique geometries at the joint interface. So, how do you join two parts into one?
Manufacturing Technology, Inc. (MTI) today announced that the company has finalized the purchase of a 127,000 square foot building located on Sheridan Avenue in South Bend. The new facility will more than double the size of the company’s growing Manufacturing Services division, which designs, develops, and produces friction welded parts for the aerospace, automotive, and medical device industries. The building was formally owned by the Mohawk Door division of Masonite International Corporation.
