Making Parts for Space Industry with 3D Metal Printer


According to Jerusalem Post Haifa’s Technion-Israel Institute of Technology has installed a million-dollar 3D printer for printing out metal products such as titanium parts for the space industry, dental crowns and implants, bone replacements and more. The printer melts metal powder with electron beams and forms it into a customized solid. The printer has already been used to print a prototype of a satellite fuel container. In the future, the engineers will print engine blades and metal implants for knees.
