Deep Sea Diving Suits
Deep sea diving suits that look remarkably like the space suits worn by astronauts conducting repairs outside the Space Shuttle must be able to withstand enormously high pressures. In cooperation (concurrent engineering) with the scientists at OceanWorks International, Nu-Cast has been able to mold, cast, and test a chest plate and vital helmet components for deep sea diving suits. It goes without saying that the tolerances of these aluminum casts are minute to say the least.
As is true in the Space Exploration, Commercial Aerospace, and the military and civilian aircraft industries, many of these parts have been the result of a process of concurrent engineering between the lead technicians at Nu-Cast and our customers’ engineering development teams. Together, we are able to produce the specifications for a design that is better because of the open cooperation of everyone involved.
