The Manufacturing team is in charge of building all of our necessary rocket components and providing them on time. Manufacturing largely occurs in the Cal Poly Machine Shops located in the hangar and Mustang 60. Much of the Propulsion system is machined from aluminum, but the team also gets to work with different materials like stainless steel and the aerospace grade ceramic, Macor. We train students in using simple hand tools all the way up to using the CNC machines because we believe in the importance of learning to design for manufacturability. By learning machining processes, CPSS club members can grow to better understand design, while also building rocket parts!
