Hardware Build to Print

Build to Print Hardware is one of HUNCH’s largest programs allowing us to create high quality hardware items for the Space Station. With many different applications we create items from approved design projects to requested items from Crew Systems. Since these projects are likely to go to the Station they need to be of the highest quality meeting the stringent tolerances applied to all hardware for the Station.

Many of our most successful projects are items requested by the crew and developed through our Design and Prototyping program. Items such as the Galley table help with crew comfort as well as other items providing maintenance solutions that keep the Station running for a long time to come. With our largest project of Stowage Lockers to hold experiments we are working at our highest quality, pushing students to produce the very best work possible.
