NASA Tests 3D Printed Rocket Engine Injector
NASA and Aerojet Rocketdyne recently finished testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or 3-D printing.
This space technology demonstration may lead to more efficient manufacturing of rocket engines, saving American companies time and money. The tests were conducted at NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland.
The series of tests demonstrated the ability to design, manufacture and test a critical rocket engine component using selective laser melting manufacturing technology — a method that employs high-powered laser beams to melt and fuse fine metallic powders into three dimensional structures.
