CRP USA will display solutions for the space industry manufactured in the Windform family of materials at Satellite Innovation 2018 at the Silicon Valley Computer History Museum, Mountain View, California, US, on 9-11 October.
Among the latest 3D printed space applications, Satellite Innovation attendees will see a unique CubeSat designed both as a CubeSat and as a dispensing system for two smaller TubeSats.
CRP USA works alongside key space industry leaders. At Satellite Innovation, the company will demonstrate the effectiveness of additive manufacturing and use of Windform as a structural material for space applications such as smallsats, since most of the Windform composite materials have passed outgassing tests and are qualified for space applications.
“Windform composite materials initiate the additive advantage for space applications,” states Stewart Davis, Director of Operations at CRP USA. “At Satellite Innovation 2018 we will be showing how Windform composite materials and laser sintering technology lead the additive race to space!”
