What is the ultimate test your products can face?
We develop different tests to ensure that our products meet the highest standards, are safe and trustworthy. But what is the actual toughest test that products can face?
The Perseverance rover (aka Percy) will travel to Mars to seek signs of ancient life and collect rock and soil samples for possible return to Earth.This is a Mission with a duration of at least 687 Earth days or one Mars year.
During this time the rover will depart from Cape Canaveral, travel through the Earths atmosphere, journey to Jezero Crater, Mars, land travel across unexplored terrain and seek signs of ancient life. We cannot develop a more comprehensive product test than this.
For this mission to be a success NASA requires the best products be used in the making of the Perseverance rover. Many companies both large & small played a role in this project. To ensure the most technically advanced rover was created abrasive cut-off wheels play a key role.
åtto abrasives cut-off wheels played a key role in the manufacturing process for the specialised aerospace fasteners developed by Pilgrim screw corp specifically for this NASA Mars 2020 mission.
