Next time you’re on an airplane, or look up in the sky, you might hear, or see, The PST Group in action. As an aerospace component manufacturer, we work with world-renowned engineers to create, develop and manufacture precision aerospace components.
For example, we manufacture thrust reverser components. While you might not be familiar with thrust reversers, you probably heard them the last time you were on an airplane: they’re responsible for the loud “whooshing” noises typically heard during the landing process. (These noises are caused by the thrusters reversing air flow, in order to land the plane safely on the ground.)
We also focus on keeping flights safe by manufacturing parts for flight controls and aircraft actuators. (Actuators transmit motion and move the wing flaps up and down depending on a pilot’s commands.)
When we work on projects, we don’t just manufacture aerospace components for our clients. We work hand-and-hand with clients to define requirements throughout the design phase and develop prototypes if necessary.
PST Group also works on interstellar components, helping NASA and astronauts effectively do their jobs.
PST Group worked with Honeywell, a key customer, on a project for the International Space Station. We developed specialized ball screws to help rockets dock onto the space station, which required a ball screw with a very small diameter and tight tolerances. Throughout the process, our team worked in collaboration with Honeywell to create the final design and prototype. Afterwards, it underwent extensive testing to ensure it would work as expected.
Besides manned space craft, we also work on unmanned space craft. During one of these projects, we manufactured parts for a robot that replaces hardware and installs software on satellites orbiting the globe. Like the International Space Station components, this part also required exotic metals with tight tolerances. Many other manufacturers passed on this project because it was too complex.
PST is a trusted, quality, American aerospace manufacturer providing aerospace solutions for a variety of industries — from cross-country planes to International Space Stations. As part of our services, we offer design and prototyping solutions as well as robust manufacturing capabilities.
