Though we have been launching products into space for more than 50 years, the costs have limited the number of participants that have access to the opportunity. However, over the past decade companies have found methods to get products into space more economically. We are now entering a new era of choice and opportunity for space applications that were previously not available. Additive manufacturing is playing a key role in accelerating the industry by providing an alternative to traditional manufacturing that can deliver design optimization, light weighting and faster part production. In this presentation, EOS will provide our insights as to what we see emerging in the satellite and rocket industry related to additive manufacturing and how companies can take advantage of additive manufacturing today to speed development and production of space applications.
- Understand additive manufacturing’s impact on space applications
- Learn about the different additive technologies available
- Determine the next steps in exploring additive manufacturing for their business
Why Is It Important?
Additive manufacturing is a disruptive technology that is already making an impact on the design and production of space bound applications. Over the past few years, we have seen additive manufacturing slowly grow into becoming a major consideration for lightweighting and low volume part requirements for satellites and a major tool for developing new rocket engines. We expect additive manufacturing to continue to grow in this industry segment and become a vital tool for production.
