Solving Structural Challenges: Optimizing Satellite Antenna Brackets

  • Thales Bracket Close-Up Aerospace
  • Reduce Component Weight

    Use direct metal printing to manufacture strong, lightweight satellite components that maintain or enhance functional performance. Since components made with direct metal printing are light, satellites can carry more without increasing costs.

  • Metal additive manufacturing in progress
  • Match Material Specifications

    Due to the unique vacuum chamber concept of our metal printers, argon gas consumption is heavily reduced while at the same time showing best in class oxygen purity (<25 ppm). This results in exceptionally strong parts of high chemical purity.

  • 3D printed LaserForm Thales Bracket
  • Decrease Lead Time

    Manufacture components with uncompromised strength that meet the unique specifications of any satellite.
