Ursa Major's Advanced Manufacturing Lab in Youngstown, Ohio Cuts Time to Produce Rocket Engine Components from 6 Months to 1 Month
The elements needed for space travel do not have to meet the high launch requirements, but can be tailored precisely to the mission requirements. The process is being researched on parabolic flights in zero gravity - supported by a uEye CP industrial camera from IDS.
Spectacular failures tend to attract much attention. It is simple curiosity as to why it happened and why something was not done to prevent it. One such event was the engine fire on a Boeing 777 flight over Denver in February 2021.
Satair, an Airbus services company, wanted to expedite aircraft maintenance through on-demand tools manufacturing. Fast Radius worked with Satair to deliver an innovative multi-process manufacturing solution that has the potential to transform the aerospace market.
"It's so rare that we get to show some of the capabilities we have, especially one that has gone through finish machining, says Scott Woida, President ADDere, "I think it gives a new perspective to what is possible with the technology."
There is no doubt that 3D Printing is shaping our societies. Its future is evolving very fast and, although its impact on different sectors is still to be defined, many industries are leveraging 3D Printing technologies for their goals.
A 3D bioprinter privately owned by an American company has successfully printed with a large volume of human heart cells aboard the International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory.
Using digital twin and digital thread technology, A&D manufacturers can conduct automated assessments to analyze the performance of aircraft components - an advancement that has significant implications for the industry.
The requirement for reliability and precision is especially the case when looking at space/earth imaging devices, which must be rugged, produce exceptional results, while at the same time being competitively priced.
This innovative California-based aerospace company is revolutionizing space exploration with Maxwell, its mass-producible EP system. Xometry is the manufacturing platform that's bringing its exoskeleton from its 12-page drawing to life.
