Paragon has developed in-house world class manufacturing services to provide superior products to our customers, along with our specialization in the development, design, and manufacture of environmental life support and thermal control systems. The manufacturing services that we provide are listed below.
Paragon’s precision manufacturing capabilities are core in our ability to provide space qualified or military grade products to our customers. Whether it’s fabricating a quick turn prototype for a spacecraft thermal control subsystem, or completing final build of a critical life sustaining environmental control sub-system, the manufacturing department’s role is central to the successful delivery of high quality products to a demanding marketplace.
It is manufacturing’s mission to support the needs of each customer, enabling Paragon to deliver on their commitment to provide superior environmental control systems, thermal control systems and sustainment solutions.
Paragon Space Development Corporation’s manufacturing department supports all of Paragon’s programs and provides low volume, quick turn mechanical solutions to a growing list of aerospace organizations. This work includes the creation of component prototypes, the completion of production hardware, and the development of low volume obsolescence solutions to our civilian and Government customer base. Our products have gone from below sea level to the vacuum of space and points in between.
Paragon has particular expertise in the manufacturing and production of space based mechanical components, and has recently expanded their offerings to include precision tube design & manufacture, as well as lower volume obsolescence support. Because of our expanding role within the aerospace community, we’ve just completed an expansion project that will increase usable manufacturing floor space by 3000 ft2, and includes new CNC assets such as mill, tube bending & lathe machines.
We use the latest in CMM technology to inspect both in-process and finished machine parts and assemblies. Our CNC machine handles stainless, titanium, aluminum, plastics and ceramics. We have developed orbital welding capability for aluminum, stainless, and titanium. Paragon maintains an ISO Class 7 level clean room for post processing and integration, primarily in support of our space products offerings.
Paragon provides high-precision tube bending and specialized welding services, including orbital welding, and expert in bending and welding very thin-walled tubing. Providing a turn-key service from design, layout, manufacturing and testing, Paragon is AS9100-certified and is one of few companies familiar with and capable of complying with NASA human spaceflight requirements. Paragon offers full CAD/CAM design capability, including design verification through, rapid prototyping to end item manufacture. Lower volume legacy support is offered to the obsolescence market through services such as build-to-print, reverse engineering and technical data package generation.
Paragon’s manufacturing staff has over 60 years’ experience in aerospace manufacturing and assembly. We work closely with our internal and external customers and use lean manufacturing techniques to ensure that all manufactured products will satisfy our customers’ needs.
