As we build a sustainable world, renewable raw materials are increasingly replacing non-renewable ones. However, metals will continue to be needed in various applications. Metal 3D printing do this sustainably: we build solutions that significantly save material, weight, and space – even in space.
The world’s first wooden satellite will be launched into orbit by the end of 2021. The purpose of the satellite is to test the suitability of wood material, particularly WISA-Birch plywood, for spacecraft structures and to expose the material to space extremes such as hot, cold, vacuum, and radiation for a long time. With the WISA WOODSAT nanosatellite project, UPM Plywood, Arctic Astronautics, and Huld explore new frontiers.
Metal 3D printing is the manufacturing method chosen for the parts of the extendable selfie stick. Delva is highly pleased to have the opportunity to deliver these exact metal prints designed by Huld Oy for the project. In this close cooperation, Porin Metallisorvaamo Nurmilo Oy does the post-processing of the precis printed parts.
3D metal printing is an industrial process that makes it possible to design and print repeatedly metal components that are fully dense, high-quality, and consistent, even when the application requires highly complex geometry. By printing the satellite’s metal parts, is the scrap material reduced to about one percent. In comparison, the number would have been about 95% with traditional methods.
Come and visit our stand, listen to and ask questions when Arctic Astronautics chief designer Samuli Nyman and Bruce Clayhills present the CubeSat-based WISA WOODSAT nanosatellite on Tuesday 21 September 2021 at 1 p.m. as Delva’s guest at Hämeenlinna’s joint stand C-220.
