3dpbm is looking forward to catching up with Velo3D, as additive manufacturing continues to play a key role in enabling the rapid design, development, and production of complex engine, rocket, and satellite parts.
Considering that AM can be used to produce the complex geometries that help make rocket parts and systems lighter, more compact, and at much lower costs (not just to build, but also to fly) – it’s hard to imagine humanity’s future in space without it.
Reliability and repeatability have been, for years, some of the most challenging elements limiting the adoption of additive manufacturing in the aerospace segment. Technological leaps in metal AM, such as those introduced by Velo3D, are now providing the innovation in part design and supply chain flexibility that are enabling breakthroughs in the emerging entrepreneurial space sector, or ‘NewSpace’.
With support from the Velo3D team and real application cases from leading Velo3D customers in the space segment, we will be looking at how Velo3D’s Sapphire family of metal 3D printing solutions, combined with the company’s innovative and powerful software, can help organizations around the world transition the production of critical parts from traditional methods of manufacturing to metal AM and scale it all the way to NewSpace.
To learn more about what Velo3D’s technology can do for your parts business in the new commercial space segment – join us on Wednesday, September 14th, 2022 @ 15:00 CET (14:00 BST).
Meet the speakers:
As Velo3D’s Sales Director for the UK and Nordic markets, William is responsible for executing the region’s sales strategy. With a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Exeter, he began his career as a Design Engineer with Red Bull Racing. He then joined Dyson’s EV program as an Advanced Design Engineer. In 2020, he moved to HiETA Technologies, a product design, development, and production company exploiting thermal management and lightweighting via AM, before moving to his current role at Velo3D.
Brian is responsible for the UK and the Nordic markets, as Velo3D’s Technical Sales Engineer. He is a Chartered Engineer registered with IMechE and has a background in Aerospace and Automotive design. As a Design Engineer, he focused on heat transfer and fluid flow parts. Before joining Velo3D, he managed the engineering department of a UK manufacturer of components for the aerospace, defense, and marine sectors. Moving into AM, he has been exploring the advantages of designing without compromising on these types of components.
As co-founder of 3dpbm, Davide brings his intimate knowledge of the AM sector and vast experience as a market analyst to everything 3dpbm does. With over 20 years of experience covering technology markets, he has authored over 50 market studies related to AM and written over a thousand articles on AM.
