10/31/2006 - 11/30/-0001
Lansing, NY, October 31, 2006 – ADC has been awarded a contract working in collaboration with the NASA's Langley Research Center to develop a device to facilitate research in the area of electron beam free form fabrication in microgravity. This process will be used to create replacement components for isolated equipment from raw material in wire form. Possible applications range from military equipment, to the ISS, to manned exploration of space.
“This is an important milestone for ADC to work with NASA” said ADC’s President Alexander Deyhim. He added “We have implemented a new quality control program, procedures, spent millions of dollar in training our staff and buying new equipment.”
ADC's role in this project is to provide a high precision manipulation system with both position and velocity control of the electron gun and substrate. Other requirements for this system include operation in vacuum as well as capacity for dealing with large heat loads from the welding process.
