Happy Star Wars Day from 3T RPD!
As well as making Additive Manufacturing (AM) parts for earth-bound vehicles, like aircraft and formula1 racing cars, 3T RPD also makes AM production parts for satellites that are racing up into the cosmos and galaxies far, far away.
AM in space really is rocket science and we have produced this infographic to show which satellite components are made using AM (or 3D Printing) today.
AM production parts produced by companies like 3T RPD are being used in satellite manufacture because they allow significant weight reductions and simplification of the components fitted to each satellite. This improves their performance which, when coupled with AM’s inherent benefit of weight reduction, helps to reduce costs of launching satellites into space.
If you have an X-Fighter or rebel-base project which you are working on and would like to talk to us about how AM can help you to steel a march on the Empire, please contact us here or call us on +44 (0) 1635 580 284.
May the fourth be with you!
