ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. Announces Metal Injection Molded Parts Go Into Outer Space

LONGMONT, Colo., Jan. 7, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —  ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARCW; the "Company" or "ARC") announced that Advanced Forming Technology has recently launched a metal injection molding (MIM) part in space.

Commenting on the launch, Kevin Schwindt, VP of Sales and Marketing for AFT said, "It is our understanding that this is one of first MIM parts in space, which we are extremely excited about." He further added, "We had a very tight timeline to get this product manufactured and we were one of the few companies capable of producing it.  We were able to produce a rapid prototype and get the part into production very quickly in order to deliver on time for launch."

In order to produce the part, AFT had to quickly develop a proprietary MIM engine component, which is an integral part of the rocket propulsion system.  The engine component profile is a MIM net-shape part.  AFT utilized its proprietary materials technology in order to deliver the necessary material properties required for the part.

Jason Young, Chairman and CEO of ARC said, "This recent MIM launch in space is a testament to the exciting applications for MIM and the advanced capabilities of ARC's MIM technology."
