Janicki’s Utah Manufacturing Facility machines extremely large and complex components to very tight tolerances, including the Lower Pressure Dome for Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner spacecraft. The Starliner Lower Pressure Dome consists of over 1,500 pockets. The dome required hundreds of hours of 5-axis machining to remove most of the space-grade aluminum alloy leaving behind the pockets. Each pocket has critical thicknesses and tolerances needed to function in space. Janicki blended its expertise in laser metrology and machining processes to ensure extreme precision and accuracy. The first of four Starliner Lower Domes have been delivered to Boeing’s Commercial Crew and Cargo Processing Facility at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, marking the completion of a challenging machined parts process for the aerospace industry.
