Lockheed Martin produces its largest 3D printed parts for space

Lockheed Martin, a global security and aerospace company based in Maryland, has produced two large titanium 3D printed domes for a high-pressure tank responsible for holding fuel on-board orbiting satellites. Measuring at 46 inches in diameter, the titanium domes which were fabricated using Sciaky’s Electronic Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) technology, are Lockheed Martin’s largest 3D […]

VEEM und Aurora Labs beschließen Partnerschaft

aurora labs1 metal 3d printer 3d drucker 250x300 - VEEM und Aurora Labs beschließen Partnerschaft

Aurora Labs ist für besonders schnelle 3D-Drucker bekannt, während VEEM auf High-Tec Propeller und Gyrostabilisierungen spezialisiert ist. Zusammen haben beide Unternehmen einen Partnerschaftsvertrag unterzeichnet, der mindestens 5 Jahre gilt. Aurora Labs ist bekannt für sehr schnelle 3D-Drucker – insbesondere den S-Titanium Pro der sogar für die NASA interessant ist. VEEM hatte im Gegensatz dazu bisher [...]

Made In Space plans to turn asteroids into spaceships using 3D printing technologies

Made In Space, the California-based pioneers of off-world 3D printers, plans to use 3D printing to turn asteroids into autonomous spacecrafts that can potentially fly to mining stations in outer space. This plan is part of the Reconstituting Asteroids into Mechanical Automata (RAMA) Project, which is funded by NASA’s Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program. Through the RAMA […]

Neue 3D BioFabrication Facility (BFF) für Internationale Raumstation

Neue 3D BioFabrication Facility BFF für Internationale Raumstation3 300x225 - Neue 3D BioFabrication Facility (BFF) für Internationale Raumstation

Eine Kooperation zwischen dem 3D-Drucker-Hersteller nScrypt und dem Innovations-Unternehmen Techshot brachte nun eine neue 3D BioFabrication Facility (BFF) für die Internationale Raumstation (ISS) hervor. Unterstützt und gesponsert wurde dieses Vorhaben von der NASA. Schon seit einiger Zeit experimentiert die NASA mit dem Vorhaben menschliche Organe 3D zu drucken. Beispielsweise kommt eine Magnetic 3D Cell Culturing-Methode, [...]

NASA green-lights Made In Space metal 3D printer for Mars

In 2017, American microgravity 3D printer developer Made In Space was awarded a NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract for the development of its Vulcan Hybrid Manufacturing System. Now, just over a year later, NASA has renewed this SBIR for the Vulcan’s continued development. Once complete, the Vulcan will be capable of working more […]
