This week CCAT hosted a number of visitors including students from The Gunnery Boarding School in Washington, CT and engineers from NASA Marshall Space Flight Center and Aeroject Rocketdyne in Los Angeles.
The students from The Gunnery inquired about CCAT’s Advanced Manufacturing Center as they enter their second year in school, learning about engineering and design through their hands on classes. The students and instructors came to the AMC to learn what they could about our advanced manufacturing processes, what we had to offer, and how they could improve their program and curriculum.
The engineers from NASA and Aeroject traveled to the AMC based off their interest in hybrid manufacturing specifically as a part of an ongoing study to make sub system parts for a RS25 Engine they are in the process of working on.
After educating CCAT on their current efforts, meeting key individuals involved in the effort, and receiving a tour from the AMC’s Associate Director Wayne Sumple, the group discussed with our experts the feasibility of using hybrid technology to make sub system parts and material, then produced a demo inducer using hybrid technology.
