Not all the rings in space go around Saturn.
Today’s returnable, reusable spacecraft are built from ultra-strong metal rings forged by ATI.
Low-cost space travel has a nice ring to it.
Mercury, Apollo, and the Space Shuttle program launched American space leadership. But a hundred years from now, when our descendants are warping off to far galaxies, the U.S. space program may be historically famous for something else: bringing down the cost of space by ratcheting up entrepreneurship. And ATI’s forged rocket rings will probably still be playing a role.
The rings that rule
We’ve been rolling seamless, high-strength forged rings for building rockets since the dawn of space travel. They’re essential structural components for containing engine thrust and withstanding the unimaginable g-forces and thermal shock of launching a vehicle beyond the atmosphere and returning it to earth intact.
Today it’s Space 2.0, with the focus on the next generation space launch systems. Our rocket rings, up to 10 feet tall and 28 feet in diameter and forged from incredibly strong alloys of aluminum and steel, are the building blocks for new rocket designs. These new rockets, created by a new generation of entrepreneurial innovators, make launch and recovery routine, safe, recyclable and affordable.
And, need we say it? They run rings around the competition.
