February 05, 2015: Aerospace Space Facilities Group, Inc. delivered and installed 2 of it's GEN-3 Abrasive Blast Cabinets to the Kansas Air Guard in Topeka Kansas. One cabinet will be utilized for aluminum parts and the other for steel parts. Both cabinets feature our Blast Shield Armor to protect the cabinet interior and the recovery cyclone.

December 29, 2014:
Aerospace Facilities Group, Inc. introduces it's very own "Blast Shield Armor" our state of the art material is used to line our blast cabinets and the recovery cyclones to protect them from wear while using harsh abrasives such as Aluminum Oxide, Glass Beads, and steel shot. This material holds up 100 times longer than traditional cabinet and cyclone rubber lining. Sound absorbing material can be added to reduce the noise level while blasting.

December 24, 2014:
Aerospace Facilities Group, Inc. introduces it's new Fan Nozzle for our GEN-3 Abrasive Blast Cabinet and our Walk-In Blast Rooms. These nozzles have a tungsten  insert making them suitable for all media types. The fan pattern doubles the striping rate as apposed to traditional round nozzles. It also reduces the chances of creating hot spots on the material being blasted.

October 23, 2014: Aerospace Facilities Group, Inc. new abrasive blast pneumatic recovery floor selector. This selector attaches to our abrasive blast media recovery floor and selects each media floor tube one at a time to recover the spent media used in the blasting process in our blast enclosures.

Selecting one recovery tube at a time insures that you will receive full recovery and maintain the proper air flow to convey the spent media.

Unlike our competitor selector that has over 10 moving parts and mechanical devises, our recovery selector only has one moving part for each tube. This design eliminates all the maintenance and leaking media associated with other designs.

This floor selector was tested 24 hours a day for 5-days with no issues or down time. This unit is on its way to the USAF in Qatar.

Corpus Christi Army Depot and Aerospace Facilities Group, Inc. breaks ground for new helicopter painting facility. Corpus Christi Army Depot, the core of Army aviation's maintenance, repair and overhaul for helicopters, engines and components, broke ground on a new modernized helicopter facility that will house painting operations for Army helicopters, this December.

When complete, this $34.2 million Aircraft Corrosion Control Facility will meet the painting requirements for the Army's UH-60 Black Hawk, CH-47D Chinook and AH-64 Apache. It will also improve corrosion control and the working environment.

The Aircraft Corrosion Control Facility is part of the Military Construction Army program for fiscal year 2013. Completion is scheduled for 2016, and will significantly increase the painting capacity for the organic industrial base at Corpus Christi Army Depot. The 77,765 sq. ft. building's six cleaning and paint bays will be large enough to accommodate the U.S. Army's newest and largest helicopters for the next several decades.
