Space Flight Components Overview
A tec, Inc. specializes in the design, manufacture, and integration of complex test systems and quality critical components. Our production engineering expertise separates us from other manufacturing companies when both reliability and cost are important. Atec has the best in 5-Axis CNC machining, coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), 3D additive metal and plastic printers, 9-Axis capable waterjet, cryogenic liquid flow test benches and environmental test chambers. We can deliver to the tightest tolerances and most exacting requirements. We can advise our customers on electron beam welding, friction joining, electronic test, environmental test, acoustics, vibration and many other technologies that can reduce manufacturing and operating costs. We are currently manufacturing liquid rocket engine fuel and oxidizer valves for multiple launch vehicles and have participated in 150 consecutive launch successes. Atec manufactured and tested advanced lithium-ion battery adapter plates that manage power for the International Space Station. Atec is designing, manufacturing, and testing power flow modules that work to prevent system failure on the human crew capsule (CCTS) that will transport astronauts to/from the ISS. Atec was awarded NASA 2016 Agency-Level Small Business Subcontractor of the Year , SBA Region VI 2017 Subcontractor for our support to NASA and Boeing and in 2018 we were named a DCMA Top 500 Supplier.
Combined with the very large fabrication of Vital Link, the laser cutting of Celtech, and Hager’s waterjetting, and Atec’s 5 axis machining and new additive metal printing, we offer the very latest in manufacturing techniques for demanding space applications. Spaceflight business growth in volume and complexity, now has our company providing complete Engineering and Program Management services for complex systems and long-term component streams. Atec and its forerunners have a storied history in the early days of NASA and we are proud to be active and growing today.
