Spacetron Metal Bellows was founded in 1982 to serve the aerospace industry in the process of gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), specializing in titanium assemblies, bellow assemblies, and vacuum chambers. During the first ten years of business, Spacetron's work focused on hardware for the B-1 Bomber and NASA's Space Shuttle programs. In 1983, Spacetron was awarded a contract from Rockwell International to design and build a 20-foot long, stainless steel vacuum chamber. After the completion of the first Spacetron Vacuum Chamber, Rockwell International awarded a second contract to perform the GTAW titanium chamber welding on the aft thrust structure for the Space Shuttle Endeavor. Throughout its 30 years in business, Spacetron has designed and built the Spacetron Vacuum Chambers, fabricated and welded titanium structures for the Kistler Aerospace reusable K-1 rocket, and provided many complex assemblies for its aerospace clients.
