Los Angeles-based space startup Relativity’s goal is to introduce an automated 3D-printing process to create custom, mission-specific rockets that can launch payloads the size of small cars. Its process reduces rocket part count from 100,000 to 1000, and has gained the attention of NASA. Check it out.
The U.S. Air Force
announced plans to open its fourth Advanced Technology and Training
Center in early 2020, with operations to include additive manufacturing
(AM) of metals and polymers, and reverse engineering.
Less than a decade ago, talk of AM used in manufacturing environments was considered by many as hype. Not so today as manufacturers find new ways to harness the technology’s power. “The journey continues towards full production ramp-up, including in-process quality control, integration, automation and entire AM supply chains, to name a few,” writes Bertrand Humel van der Lee, chief customer operations officer at Germany-based EOS.
