CUSTOMER STORIES

AEROJET ROCKETDYNE

With a cost savings of $1 million and the lead time cut in half, Aerojet Rocketdyne and MTI agreed that refurbishing and upgrading the Vertical Rotary Friction Welding (VRFW) machine originally built in 1981 would be the most cost-efficient and time-saving option to develop a next generation rocket engine for NASA.
