Nucleus at the moment of launch from Andøya Space Center

Dear Mr. Lane,
It is with great pleasure that I tell you, on behalf of the whole Nammo Space team, that the launch of our first hybrid sounding rocket was a complete success. 

As part of the Ground Support Equipment for this launch (as well as during the static test campaign), the 3 positions actuators that we acquired from you were used to fill the propellant in the rocket and to pressurize the full system. Both actuators worked perfectly fine and we are very happy with their behaviour. You can find attached a picture of the installation of the A32 actuator on the launch pad with the rocket already in position.

See our newest custom actuator case study here.

A customer came to us recently to design and build a new product from the ground up. They needed to build a new bottling machine to handle filling their customer’s unique bottle design with very caustic materials. Once we determined the full requirements, we designed and manufactured a new rotary actuator with an attached gripper unit, all in 316 stainless steel to provide protection from corrosive materials. The new actuator and gripper grips the bottle; rotates it to the desired degrees for filling, then rotates back to release the bottle.
