According to Lockheed Martin Space executive vice president Rick Ambrose,” Lockheed Martin’s titanium domes are the largest 3D-printed spacecraft parts.
Lockheed Martin has created its largest piece. This titanium domes to cover the fuel tanks of the satellites. The use of additive manufacturing can help satellites assemble faster and with less wasted materials.
Our largest 3D printed parts to date show we’re committed to a future where we produce satellites twice as fast and at half the cost”.
According to the Yahoo Finance news Mr.Warren Buffett,” Invested in 3D Printing,” The Oracle may have seen growth opportunities the rest of the market was largely overlooking — in combining the leading market positions of Precision Castparts in titanium alloys and technically complex engineered metals with the up-and-coming potential presented by metal 3D printing”.
Precision Castparts would gobble up Atlantic Precision, a start-up in the metal 3D printing space focused on direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The technology fuses metal powdered alloys used in additive manufacturing machines to create complex shapes with fine geometries. What was the reasoning?
Metal alloy leader Allegheny Technologies and General Electric recently created a joint venture to develop and commercialize a manufacturing process for creating melt less titanium alloy powders for metal 3D printing applications…..:)
