MT Aerospace to qualify large 3D-printed components for space


(06 May 2021) The European Space Agency (ESA) has awarded MT Aerospace AG, a member of the OHB Group, a contract to set technical standards for additive manufacturing processes (3D printing) in the space sector.

The contract is worth €11 million, has a term of three years and is aimed at qualifying 3D processes and large-volume components for space applications.

The objective is to establish a standardised additive manufacturing process that is certified for aerospace applications, starting with material input and ending with the finished component. The focus is on large aluminium components that can be integrated, for example, in structural elements of the European Ariane 6 launcher and in aircraft.
