SBIR IN THE NEWS
NASA Green-lights Made In Space Metal 3D Printer For Mars
In 2017, American microgravity 3D printer developer Made In Space was awarded a NASA SBIR contract for the development of its Vulcan Hybrid Manufacturing System. Now, just over a year later, NASA has renewed this SBIR for the Vulcan’s continued development.
Once complete, the Vulcan will be capable of working more than 30 different materials covering both polymers and metals.
In explanation of the project Mike Snyder, Made In Space chief engineer and principal investigator, says, “The Vulcan hybrid manufacturing system allows for flexible augmentation and creation of metallic components on demand with high precision.”
In addition, it is “an efficient, safe capability that utilizes the minimum amount of resources during manufacturing processes.”
