Astronaut crew equipped with space suits welded on PFAFF

SpaceX Demonstration Mission 2 (or SpX-DM2 for short) is the first manned mission of the US spacecraft Crew Dragon. In late May 2020, she brought the two NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken to the International Space Station. After two months in space, NASA has safely returned the ISS expedition crew to Earth. With the successful landing, the private company SpaceX is once again making space history.

As Hurley and Behnken left the capsule beaming after landing in the Gulf of Mexico, PFAFF INDUSTRIAL and the DAP AMERICA subsidiary in Atlanta shared in their enthusiasm. The new space suits for SpaceX were manufactured on PFAFF 8310 ultrasonic machines. The functional seams of the suits successfully fulfilled the strength and tightness properties required for working in outer space under extreme conditions.
