Valiant products take off with Velo3D Sapphire XC joining the contract manufacturing network for 3D Printing rocket engine parts.
Valiant Products is embarking on an exciting journey in additive manufacturing, leveraging the advanced capabilities of Velo3D’s Sapphire XC system. The company, renowned for its commitment to innovation and pushing the boundaries of manufacturing technology, has announced its plans to 3D print rocket engine parts using the cutting-edge XC metal machine. While Valiant has expressed its intention to upgrade to the Sapphire XC 1MZ in the future, the immediate focus is on utilizing the XC system to produce high-quality parts for rocket engines. This strategic decision was influenced by a mutual customer who recognized the potential of Velo3D’s metal additive manufacturing technology in enhancing their supply chain.
The Sapphire XC system at Valiant Products has been meticulously calibrated to process Inconel 718, a material known for its high strength and corrosion resistance. Widely utilized in mission-critical applications in the aerospace industry, Inconel 718 aligns with Valiant’s commitment to providing top-notch solutions for its customers. Bob English, Founder, and CEO of Valiant Products, highlighted the company’s dedication to exploring new manufacturing technologies to offer customers access to the best capabilities for producing complex designs and geometries. He expressed confidence that Velo3D’s metal 3D printing technology will empower customers to build lighter-weight and more performant parts. Michelle Sidwell, Velo3D EVP of Global Sales and Business Development, commended Valiant Products for its innovative approach to addressing customer challenges. The installation of the Sapphire XC at Valiant has showcased their meticulous attention to detail. With its proximity to the Cape Canaveral launch pads, Valiant is positioned to be a valuable resource for aerospace customers seeking to manufacture parts for rocket and air-breathing engines.
As Valiant Products joins Velo3D’s contract manufacturer network, the collaboration promises to transform aerospace supply chains. The fully integrated solution, coupled with the expertise of both companies, is set to bring about a significant impact on the way rocket engine parts are manufactured. The aerospace industry can anticipate a new era of lighter, more efficient components, thanks to the strategic partnership between Valiant Products and Velo3D.
