The key aluminium parts of Tiangong-1 are made of China Chalco
After See on television picture of the successful launch of Tiangong-1, we felt so excited and proud. Because of the launch mission Changzheng rockets and 80% of aluminium parts on the spacecraft, are provided by chinalco southwest aluminum and east light company. On April 21, in the morning, chinalco, the company's employees are hotly debated the matter.
It is known that Tiangong-1 mainly undertakes to transport goods and propellant on-orbit space laboratory extra work, is currently China's largest volume, maximum weight of spacecraft. Perform Tiangong-1 freight shuttle mission is Changzheng-7 march rocket. Together they make up of the space lab system. After Tiangong-1 launch orbit, and orbiting tiangong-2 has three rendezvous and docking, three propellant in-orbit repair and to carry out the space application and experiment in the field of space technology, etc.
China chalco southwest aluminum and east light company undertook the boat a long march rocket and seven days spacecraft, high quality aluminum alloy sheet, profiles, bars, and a number of varieties of aluminum alloy key materials such as forging ring development tasks, is mainly used for the "skeleton" of the spacecraft, skin, and the carrier rocket parts, fittings and mechanical parts such as key parts.
It is understood that the long march rockets and seven day boat key materials required for a spacecraft, with more specifications, component size, complicated shape, the characteristics of the process is difficult. Chinalco southwest aluminum and east light company give full play to the technological advantages, independent research and development of new materials, new technology, effectively solved a series of technical problems, has obtained the smelting, hot working, heat treatment and a series of scientific research, to overcome a number of key technical challenges in materials research and development production, ensure the boat a long march rocket and seven days the successful launch of spacecraft.
