Nadcap Welding is Key to Getting Humans to Mars

Humans on Mars? The possibility is ever-growing, but getting them there will certainly involve Napcap welding of spacecraft materials. National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap) welding is an exceptionally clean and uniform process used in aerospace projects. Nadcap-certified processes use premium metals due to their higher purity and corrosion-resistance properties. The results includeRead more

Orbital welded part

Morale is key in orbital welding shops, robots or not

Bringing in a robot to perform orbital welding tasks in a manufacturing shop can throw a wrench into the works, as far as morale goes. That is not a concern at Axenics, because almost every weld performed is different, so there is no need for a robot that performs the same weld, day in dayRead more
