Manufacturing Mechanical Parts of M6P Nano-Satellite Bus
Behind the Scenes
  • 2018-01-09

NanoAvionics’ M6P nano-satellite buses have around 150 mechanical parts, which are being designed, analyzed and manufactured with the highest precision and advanced industrial technologies. Have a look at this sneak-peak video illustrating how we produce some of these mechanical parts at Ekstremalė.

Few highlights of the mechanical processing we bring into play:
– The highest quality age hardened aerospace grade aluminum alloys are being used
– Most of aluminum part surfaces are hard anodized to provide hard wearing and electrically isolating protective layer.
– We use most sophisticated industrial balancing technologies
– All the mechanical parts are weight and stiffness optimized using finite element analysis.
– Electrochemical etching is being used in the manufacturing of the propulsion system
– The sealing surfaces are being polished using precision electrolytic polishing
– Pressure vessels used in the propulsion system are checked with non-destructive testing techniques
