Satellite to Use Additive-Manufactured Components Directly Exposed to Space

By: Peter Zelinski
Support structures are produced through FDM in plastic material as strong as aluminum. Internal complexity is part of the reason for producing the parts through 3D printing.

The Case for Off-Site Innovation

By: Peter Zelinski
Okuma says the point of its aerospace technology center is to provide a place for manufacturers to perform all the trial-and-error they need to perfect a new process. It’s also a place to find and consult with sources of up-to-date manufacturing technology expertise.

Additive Manufacturing of Brackets Saves 1 Kilogram per Satellite

By: Peter Zelinski
Because of complexity, material and quantity, spacecraft and satellite components are good candidates for additive production.

Build the Machine around the Workpiece

By: Stephanie Monsanty
Rather than fitting a part into an existing machine, modular machining units enable building a custom machine particularly suited for that workpiece. This approach is best for large production runs of specialized parts.

Reducing Setups With Automated Pallet Systems

By: Russ Willcutt
Wouldn’t it be great to set up a pallet once and then be done with it? Automated pallet systems help companies recover time lost to repeat setups for recurring part orders.
