Challenge

SEPAC was contracted by a premier aerospace supplier to design and manufacture multiple models of brakes for the next generation of the International Space Station and other space travel applications.

Solution

Over an extended period of time, SEPAC worked directly with the customer’s project team to develop a fail-safe brake that met the extremely tight performance and design tolerances associated with this highly specialized application. Additionally, SEPAC implemented design safeguards that were suited to withstand the unforgiving, zero gravity environment.

Production

After the custom design was approved, SEPAC manufactured the brakes. To ensure that all design requirements were met, the process required extensive planning, significant vendor interaction, and innovative manufacturing techniques spearheaded by SEPAC.

Result

The team at SEPAC successfully designed multiple solutions for the aerospace client, solutions that have the potential to be used in space travel for decades to come.
