Out of this world gear cutting results is something Forest City Gear celebrates about accomplishing. For us, this is not just an elaborate expression, but a fact considering our gears have advanced into outer space and are on “Curiosity”, the rover that is exploring Mars. A small documentary film was made to follow our team as we took on this mission.
The film follows our team, during the production of the gears for Curiosity. It highlights how everyone was dedicated and determined to get each gear perfect. It was definitely a challenge but an accepted one that inspired us to reach a level of greatness.
One challenging factor was that the gears needed to be titanium, which is a very difficult material to cut, and the challenge did not end there.
Our owner began coining the challenge double jeopardy because not only did the gears need to function correctly, they also needed to ensure Curiosity arrived safely on Mars. The success of the mission fell heavily on Forest City Gears shoulders.
Now looking back we smile at how our team pulled together, and we have a great sense of accomplishment knowing our gears are contributing towards the efforts of discovering more about Mars.
Many people use the expression “Follow your curiosity.” Here are Forest City Gears we not only embrace this life lesson, we can also say we helped built it.
