Howco AM Components Went to The Moon!

In December of 1972, the Apollo 17 astronauts made their final strides on the Moon, marking the culmination of humankind’s lunar exploration.

Fast forward to February 2024, the journey back to the lunar surface resumed, signalling a momentous occasion as a U.S. spacecraft prepared to land on the Moon for the first time in over 50 years.

The Howco team takes pride in being a supplier of additively manufactured metal components for the Intuitive Machines IM-1 mission Nova-C class lunar lander.

This represents a significant advancement for us, showcasing our ability to provide high-quality precision components.

We continue to expand our presence across diverse industries and we remain committed to delivering value to our customers.

The IM-1 mission Nova-C class lunar lander launched on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket and successfully commissioned in space by establishing a stable attitude, solar charging, and radio communications contact with the Company’s mission operations centre in Houston.
