A Message from Ascent Aerospace
Perfect molds for perfect parts Longer life–and larger than life. Our mammoth molds come without mammoth logistics costs. Yet our small tool focused factory enables us to think small as well as big for you. The way we bond and seal graphite is the envy of the industry. And our weld beads bring tears to the eyes of anyone who knows what it takes to deliver an invar mold. We’re expert in all the primary materials, so you can rely on us for independent advice on what to use.We design and make layup molds and bond and other cure tools, sculpting them in high-performance composite, invar and graphite, as well as, of course, aluminum and steel.
