Hydratight Takes NASA to Great Heights

HYDRATIGHT engineers have helped NASA's rocket launches fly straight and true. Machining services specialists at Hydratight were asked to help prepare launch facilities for NASA operations. Technicians were asked to undertake critical milling and boringwork to keep two giant launch pads precisely horizontal - to tolerances of no more than 0.015in across six mounting points. A laser system was...
