When the global supply chain froze, OEMs were unable to supervise the quality of their offshore suppliers. PACON responded when others could not, more than doubling its output of precision motion components, and pulling-in shipments without missing a beat. As tariffs and other trade frictions drive new onshoring demands, especially for precision machined components, PACON's Precision Machining 4.0 processes and its 60 pallet 5-Axis cell are essential.

Assembling Mars Rover



PACON delivered more than fifty components for the Mars 2020 Rover Perseverance including components for the Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment (MOXIE). An essential mission objective is to demonstrate technologies necessary to address the challenges of planned human exploration. MOXIE is designed to produce >99.6% pure Oxygen from the Martian CO2 atmosphere. Martian O2 production is essential for life support and rocket propellant for the explorers’ return to Earth.
