Today, satellite launches and space exploration are more accessible than ever, with more and more companies aiming to both capitalize on the new industry and bring their own innovations to the segment. Among them is Italian space propulsion firm Avio SPA, which will be the focus of our upcoming webinar.
Admittedly not a new company—it was founded over a hundred years ago—Avio SPA has been focused on space launch applications since 2012, when the company’s aeronautical division (Avio Aero) was acquired by General Electric. Since then, Avio has been developing propulsion systems, payload adapters and, notably, its family of Vega space launch vehicles for sending payloads into Earth orbit. The company’s mission? To make space more accessible than ever.
Avio’s success in this sphere, as well as the incredible growth we’ve seen across the new space industry, have been in large part driven by cutting edge technologies. Technologies like Velo3D’s metal additive manufacturing, which has proven vital to the continuing development and production of Avio’s space propulsion systems.
The Italian aerospace company has multiple Velo3D systems in operation today as part of its Additive Smart Factory, including a Sapphire 3D printer and large-format Sapphire XC 1MZ 3D printer acquired last June. In our upcoming webinar, we will hear more about how the company is utilizing Velo3D’s AM solutions to advance space propulsion technology and enhance its production efficiency.
Join us on Wednesday December 6th, 2023 at 9:00am EST for an unmissable webinar. Hosted by Davide Sher, CEO and Co-Founder of VoxelMatters, the online event brings together Velo3D’s Roberto Esposito and Riccardo Tosi and Avio SPA Lead Manufacturing Engineer Alberto Campi to discuss how Velo3D’s solutions are unlocking unparalleled innovation and flexibility in aerospace manufacturing and supply chains.
