Panel: Additive Manufacturing: Accomplishing Large Formats and Standards Qualification Aggreements to Realize Fast Integral Space System Design
Additive manufacturing (AM) is gaining an increasing foothold in the space industry. As industry is moving to higher volume production, questions and challenges arise, including the production of larger formats, safety and qualifications of materials.
Simultaneously, the impact on its design and the wide variety in standards that prime organizations set for AM materials are a cause for concern for the future of additive manufacturing. If implemented in the right way, AM is set to disrupt the way we approach space system development, testing and cost management. Experts in the field of AM will discuss all aforementioned challenges and will discuss how to move this technology further forward.
