How Advanced Metal AM Can Provide the Space Industry with a Galaxy of Innovation
We’re witnessing a renaissance in the space industry. Today, there are more than 300 companies developing next generation launch vehicles. Ten years ago, that number was roughly 12. As stalwarts such as SpaceX and Blue Origin achieve high levels of success, an entire “NewSpace” industry is riding their wake trying to compete and gain the competitive edge with their own innovations.

As the competition for investment funds intensifies, and the pressure to move beyond the whiteboard and manufacture real working parts increases, it’s no secret that the most successful companies will be those that take advantage of the latest breakthroughs in metal additive manufacturing to design, test, and manufacture with unprecedented speed and agility.

Join Ali Baghchehsara, Founder & President of Plasmos and Brent Hansen, Technical Business Development Manager from Velo3D as they discuss the advancements in metal AM and explore how the Velo3D end-to-end solution can provide the innovation in part manufacturing and supply chain flexibility to enable the required advances in the emerging entrepreneurial space sector.

This interactive session will be moderated by 3dprint.com’s Joris Peels. Register today and be sure to bring you questions.
