As our nation’s defense priorities develop to counter increasingly advanced adversaries and threats, so too does the demand for new advanced manufacturing capabilities capable. Today, Dynetics Technical Solutions (DTS), a Dynetics subsidiary, operates the largest electron-beam welding system in the Western Hemisphere that enables our partners in the aerospace, defense and commercial industries to manufacture with speed, scale and quality like never before.
Our team of experts collaborates throughout the design, prototyping and manufacturing process to create easily manufacturable designs to save our customers time and money. Our collocated facilities provide us with the ability to rapidly tackle tough technical challenges from beginning to end. And now, they’re expanding. We have added 21,000 square feet of classified manufacturing space, 2,300 square feet of top secret, secured work bay space, and classified pre- and post-weld machining areas.
The addition of the 22-feet-long, 22-feet-wide and 22-feet-high system aids the Dynetics welding facility in establishing north Alabama as the U.S. leader in advanced electron-beam welding for aerospace, defense and commercial sectors. Capable of supporting government and commercial programs at both the unclassified and classified levels, the system will support the Virginia and Columbia class submarine hardware and other programs of national importance. Division-wide welding capabilities to include Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), which support programs such as the U.S. Army’s Long Range Hypersonic Weapons (LRHW).
