August 31: 3D Systems & AM for Satellites

3D Systems will hold its second webinar of the week, “Additive Manufacturing for Satellites: Advances in Passive RF and Lightweight Structure,” at 11 am EST on the 31st, sponsored by Microwave Journal. The goal of the webinar is to help organizations step back, evaluate their functional requirements, and build a realistic roadmap from smaller (individual flight parts) to bigger AM successes a secured supply chain which delivers system-level improvements). Together with 3D Systems AIG speakers Koen Huybrechts, Manager, Aerospace Application Development, in Belgium, and Joe Dopkowski, Senior Applications Engineer, Colorado, attendees will learn how major OEMs, research institutes, and suppliers have designed and proven lightweight structure and passive radio frequency (RF) components for ground and space with AM.

“​3D Systems, via Layerwise, has partnered with Thales Alenia Space since 2013 to support AM application development with metal additive manufacturing.  Work with Airbus Defence and Space began in 2015 as a development and qualification partner for new additively manufactured passive RF applications.

“3D Systems has enabled more than 2,000 Ti and Al-alloy structural components for space flight since 2015, 200+ critical passive RF flight parts since 2017, and has delivered flight hardware for more than 15 satellites.”

Dr. Benjamin Richter, a physicist and Application Manager at Nanoscribe, will offer an introduction into the basics, principles, and capabilities of 2PP, as well as a live demonstration of 3D printing microneedles on the Quantum X bio. Then, Professor Ryan Donnelly, Chair of Pharmaceutical Technology at Queen’s University Belfast, will present on the potential of microneedle arrays for transdermal drug delivery, as well as other novel medical applications, like scar-reduction structures, biosensors, pain patches, and more.

“As minimal invasive devices, microneedles offer great application potential in various fields such as drug delivery, vaccination, blood collection, disease diagnosis, and patient monitoring. Importantly, the microneedle design and materials strongly affect their targeted application and effective translation into clinical trials. In addition, the scalability of microneedle production depends directly on the strategy implemented to microfabricate reproducible and shape-accurate microneedle arrays.”
