Your Source For High-Performance Aerospace Forgings

Knowledge, Experience, Flexibility = Rapid Development & Delivery

  • AST’s engineering technology and streamlined manufacturing processes deliver the most critical portions of rockets, spacecrafts, missiles and other components to the aerospace industry for aviation and space applications.
  • Complex geometries, non-standard shapes, larger, lighter, using a variety of exotic alloys…delivered in one-piece…enhanced strength, durability, and performance.
  • In-house engineering, flexible operations, and a catalog of experience allow for rapid development and delivery.

Delivering Aerospace Components You Need...the Way You Need Them

AST supports a variety of components for space vehicles. If you have a challenging application that would benefit from the strength and durability of single-pieced forged components, we welcome the opportunity to work with you.

With an extensive history of producing pressure vessels for high pressure
and cryogenic applications, AST’s forged and formed, seamless Type 3 liners are currently used in multiple space programs.

Contact us for your specific requirements – whether it’s a dome, half liner, tube, or other tank component, we welcome the opportunity to help produce your specific design requirements. Let us help resolve your project challenges.

AST has built a portfolio of capabilities for producing single-piece engine nozzles and combustion chambers for the launch industry.

In comparison to traditional techniques of welding multiple forged components together, AST’s single-piece solution enhances nozzle durability and quality while simplifying manufacturing processes.

Forged metal chambers with complex geometries and no welded sections result in a stronger, more durable chamber and a streamlined assembly process for our manufacturing customers.
