Handsome, Smart 3-D Work of Art

Meeting the needs of the quickly growing small satellite world requires not just a proven rocket design but also the capability to build lots of rockets — quickly, flexibly, and affordably.

To develop the best manufacturing facility in aerospace, we have partnered with the best manufacturing company in any industry: DMG Mori, the world’s premier supplier of manufacturing machine tools. DMG Mori’s top-of-the-line hardware form the backbone of our machine shop; and now, we’re honored to have procured the first ever machine in each of DMG Mori’s two most recent generations of advanced manufacturing equipment.

These incredible tools almost feel like magic. They give us the incredible speed and flexibility of the world’s most advanced 3d printers, along with the incredible quality and consistency of a classical subtractive machine shop.

Now, as we work to accelerate our production cadence and push the boundaries of modern manufacturing even further, DMG Mori is helping to illuminate the path forward.
