  8. Modern Manufacturing for Liquid Rocket Engine Components

    SBC: ADVANCED POWDER SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: AF18AT009

    Liquid Rocket Engine (LRE) component manufacturing process by conventional processes are comprised of multi steps, components are fabricated by conventional machining from a forged or rolled billet/sheet. As a result a long lead time is needed and part acquisition time is high. So a low cost fabrication process is needed to replace current traditional processes. Low cost, rapid fabrication of this ...
