Posted in and COVID-19.
After a longer than expected delay (due to record growth in the last 6 months), I am proud to announce that the 2020 CuTS® Catalog is finally ready and available for request on our website!
I am thrilled to announce TAI just completed another set of Graphite Fiber Thermal Straps (GFTS®), destined for NASA's Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer (IXPE) Satellite, scheduled for launch in November 2020.
The TAI team is thrilled to see the Boeing Starliner will finally be making it's first flight 7 weeks from today!
On behalf of the TAI team, I am thrilled to announce another first for our company, and the thermal strap industry as a whole: Electroless Nickel-Plated Al-Cu Hybrid CuTS® Products
The TAI team is proud to announce we are delivering several custom Copper (Cabled) Thermal Straps (CuTS®) this week to the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, for ESA's JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE) spacecraft, planned for launch in 2022 and arrival at Jupiter in 2029.
I thought I would share some pictures from one of our Graphite Fiber Thermal Strap (GFTS®) orders that are shipping out today (this is a record year for our GFTS® product line, and even with the success of our X-Series® PGS and Graphene Thermal Straps / Links line, we are continuing to see growth in our GFTS® sales and programs, and are adding to new customers this year from Spain, to Italy, the United States, Germany, and more).

2019 has been another record-breaking year for TAI, and things are only getting busier. We are thrilled to announce that in addition to the new manufacturing equipment and vacuum chambers added to our facility this year, TAI will be expanding into a larger manufacturing facility in February 2020, and are now adding more Design Engineers and Technicians to accommodate our growing business (more news coming at the end of the year).
I just wanted to share this pic of the next set of FM GFTS®/TEC hybrid thermal straps out for NASA's IXPE Mission:
