3d Printing in Space

A

Additive manufacturing (AM) is reaching outer space. Private space enterprises, state-run-space organizations, and other members of the space industrial ecosystems are quickly developing new concepts and possibilities based on AM capabilities. Examples of  Metal 3D printing in Space applications range from a moonshot project   such as the European Space Agency’s AMAZE (where a 3D printer is to be put in space) to realization of components such as antennae, wave guides, brackets, thrusters, main oxidizer valves, combustion chamber liners, and propellant injectors, that  are either in the prove out stage or are actually flying.

Structural components, such as brackets and supports, are some of the  low-risk applications of metal 3D printing in Space sector.. Wipro 3D has redesigned, developed, and proved out flight-ready components for radio frequency applications such as antennae and feed horns, as well as developed capabilities for engine specific components with complex geometries that have undergone stringent validations by customers.

Apart from “native” ALSi10Mg alloy, Wipro 3D offers specific Al alloys as well as the ability to adopt new alloys, based on customer applications and business case. We have developed a robust applied domain understanding in space technology based on our own research, and in the course of our work with one of the world’s prestigious space agencies, resulting in mature know-how on the application of metal 3D printing in space applications.
