Space Exploration

EWI leads the way in developing and deploying advances in manufacturing for the space industry to reduce weight and cost, improve first-time quality, and speed up the development cycle compared to legacy manufacturing methods.

EWI helps space hardware manufacturers reduce the risks associated with innovation by leveraging our expertise in materials and manufacturing processes. By applying advanced manufacturing technologies, EWI enables improvements in performance, quality, and manufacturability of space hardware for rocket engines, launch vehicles, and satellites, while reducing life-cycle costs. Our extensive work in the areas of additive manufacturing, advanced nondestructive evaluation (NDE), high-consequence joining of aerospace alloys and composites, low-volume welding automation, and computational modeling and simulation gives our customers a competitive advantage.

By drawing from our cross-technology expertise in process development, EWI engineers are able to offer new options for consolidating complex part assemblies, propose alternative fabrication methods, improve design for manufacture, and quickly provide solutions that increase performance. Our technical team can assist with concept generation, design optimization, process development, equipment specification, tooling design and build, quality inspection, material/process-specific technical training, and on-site support during implementation. EWI will work with your integrator or machine builder of choice to effectively deploy manufacturing solutions to your facility.
