Regal Cutting Tools Contributes to America’s Space Program

Regal Cutting Tools has been working with Lockheed Martin and NASA for a number of years developing unique small quantity tools used in the production of the Orion capsule and launch escape system.

Because of our close relationship with the development engineers and Regal’s involvement in building prototype and production components for the Orion program, our Vice President & General Manager Dick Hartnett received a personal invitation as a guest of NASA to view the first launch.

“It was an exciting historical event that I was honored to be present for,” commented Dick. “Orion will eventually take our astronauts to Mars. Can you believe it?”
