Capstan introduces new Epson Robot Technology to the manufacturing lines. Manufacturing in the heart of Los Angeles, California can lead to high labor wages. We are at an age of technology that is rapidly becoming affordable. To combat the wage increases and to make our manufacturing lines streamlined, we have introduced new Epson 6-Axis C4L robots.
NASA and JPL project teams came to Capstan for a porous metal solution to be used on the Mars Curiosity Rover. The main objective was to keep debris from entering and to repressurize or vent the drill during the landing of the rover. Our team provided a stainless steel solution of twelve porous metal disk surrounding the cover plate to the MSL Drill.
Capstan introduces a new logo to the world for better brand recognition. Over the years Capstan has acquired businesses, grown organically, and moved into new markets. Our company name has become one of the most recognized powder metal companies in the world and now our logo will simply improve that recognition. The new Capstan logo represents the merging of two different particles during the sintering process.
