August 5, 2019 – Precision formatter Web Industries Inc. is beginning work on a Center of Excellence for space-related thermal management solutions at its Denton, Texas, manufacturing facility. The 10,000-square-foot Center will support Web’s strategy of providing a broad array of thermal insulation products for space/satellite applications. The announcement is being made in conjunction with the Small Satellite Conference, August 5-8, 2019, Utah State University, Logan, Utah. (At the SmallSat Conference, Web occupies Booth #7T.)
According to Web Industries’ Thermal Insulation Business Development Manager Lee Smith, the Denton expansion will help Web meet the increased demand spurred by the new space race and the continuing proliferation of small satellite constellations. The Center of Excellence will promote lean manufacturing and smoother production flow, and will include new capabilities such as an advanced sewing operation.
“Customers supporting the new space race come to us for traditional multi-layer insulation (MLI) systems but also for sewn or stitched assemblies that are ready for installation by small satellite OEMs,” says Smith. “The expansion will allow us to differentiate our offerings and position Web to meet increased demand in the future.”
The MLI Center of Excellence at Denton is expected to be completed by early 2020.
