The UK's national AM strategy: Why the UK should embrace Additive Manufacturing
The Additive Manufacturing National Strategy, published last September by the UK Additive Manufacturing Strategy Steering Group, stated that the UK was advanced in additive manufacturing research, design and manufacturing expertise, but many UK companies were failing to apply the technology as a ...
Changing the economics of space: Creating 3D printed liquid rocket engines
Thanks to additive manufacturing, small companies are now able to manufacture rocket engines outside traditional methods at a lower cost. The start-up Launcher, founded in 2017 builds 3D printed engines that will one day launch small payloads into space faster and cheaper, making space more affor ...
Making space affordable: The unmissable opportunity of made-in-space parts
Additive Manufacturing could be the key factor in conducting affordable and sustainable missions, reducing costs and improving the crew's safety by manufacturing much-needed broken parts without necessitating a resupply mission. How far are we from conducting deep-space exploration missions?< ...

Life Cycle Cooperation between EADS IW and EOS - Whitepaper
Life cycle considerations are becoming increasingly important due to the need to consider sustainability – economy, quality and environment – in industry. But where a machine supplier or a material provider would traditionally conduct this type of analysis on their own, we wanted to develop a new approach clustering the...
Advanced Applications of 3D Printing: From Prototypes and Parts
3D printing – the additive fabrication of objects by depositing and patterning successive layers of material – has been touted as an enabling platform for applications ranging from lighter, more efficient aircraft and advanced prosthetics to homemade firearms and lab-grown organs. Anthony Vicari, Research Associate at Lux Research, provides this...
