ATK Launch Systems - Utah - Aliant Techsystems Inc.

In order to ensure that launch systems at ATK Thiokol perform to standards, proper mechanisms must be in place. Often times these mechanisms need repair. Such was the case that resulted in the need for ATK to commission A-Core Concrete Cutting Inc. A-Core took on the challenge to cut a 28” thick solid steel shaft. This was performed using one of A-Core’s many state-of-the-art wire saws. The wire sawing technician sawed 3 cuts around the 28” diameter piece of solid steel with a hardness of 34 to 55 rc and an ultimate strength of 150 to 300 ksi. The project was completed in a quick time frame resulting in complete customer satisfaction.
