3D Printed Parts
Compared to conventional processes, Additive Manufacturing offers a host of benefits - producing metal or plastic components that are lighter, take less time to manufacture and are ultimately cheaper to produce. Weight reduction is a decisive factor in the space industry, since the lighter a satellite is, the less it costs to send it into space.
RUAG Space has been conducting intensive research and development work on how to "print" objects in three dimensions. As a result a lot of know-how about 3D printing is available that RUAG offers to the Space and Non-Space market.
RUAG can operate as a “one stop shop” and provide customers a 3D printed part based on the their requirements. Offering only the (re-)engineering support is another way of working with RUAG, after the engineering phase the customer prints the part at any location in the world saving also the time and cost of transportation.
