Changing the economics of space: Creating 3D printed liquid rocket engines

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 affordable.

Ahead of the fifth annual Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace and Space forum, Defence IQ discussed with Max Haot, Founder and CEO of Launcher and speaker at the event. In this transcript of the discussion, learn more about:

  • Launcher’s goal and challenges associated with manufacturing 3D printed rocket engines
  • Their partnerships with EOS
  • How Max sees the potential that additive manufacturing holds for the space sector, now and in the future
