New 3D printed titanium satellite inserts by Atos and Materialise are up to 70% lighter

The aerospace sector is rapidly becoming one of the main drivers of metal 3D printing technology, and their weight and material constraints are constantly pushing the innovation envelope. This has again been underlined by Belgian 3D printing giant Materialise and digital services specialist Atos, who have together developed a groundbreaking aerospace component: 3D printed titanium inserts that are nearly 70 percent lighter than currently used parts. These revolutionary inserts, which can only be manufactured through 3D printing, were unveiled last week during ECSSMET 2016, the European Conference on Spacecraft Structures, Materials and Environmental Testing. It is a joint success […]
