NASA Engineers successfully use 3-D Printed Part on RS-25 Rocket Engine


NASA Engineers successfully use 3-D Printed Part on RS-25 Rocket Engine


Article Excerpt: "... As we build future RS-25s, NASA and our partners are taking advantage of innovative manufacturing techniques, including additive manufacturing, or 3-D printing, to make the engines more affordable,” said Andy Hardin engine integration hardware manager for the SLS Program at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. “3-D printing is revolutionizing manufacturing, and the pogo accumulator is the first of many components that can be built more quickly and less expensively ..."
