We work closely with our material suppliers to develop new and more robust materials to meet ever evolving product environmental requirements. Concurrently, we work to improve fabrication techniques and attachment methodologies. Our fabricators work hand-in-hand with our engineering team to train and improve.
Whether your need is build-to-print or custom design, we have a wide array of Engineering Services that can be matched to your products needs. We draw on our depth of experience with thin film products and custom laminates to work with you on your Multi-Layer Insulation design. We can provide you with input on material selection and fabrication techniques as well as create custom molds and mockups to serve as platforms for lay flat templating and fabrication. We work closely with our clients to develop innovative insulation solutions using premier production methods and processes. With an eye on creating a quality product we painstakingly fabricate our products and strive to exceed our customers’ expectations.
As part of our custom service capabilities, Aerospace Fabrication is able to provide complete drawing and data packages. MLI blankets can be templated, fabricated, and installed using our internal documentation. We manufacture and supply a variety of EVA hardware and MLI subassemblies for space applications. We assemble MLI lay-ups or blanket kits, certified for space use, to meet your individual needs.
