The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry is developing a partnership with the North American Space Agency (NASA), as US space scientists look to use MTC-developed technology in future space missions.
The link-up comes after work done by the MTC for the European Space Agency (ESA). MTC is home to the ESA’s additive manufacturing (AM) benchmarking centre. US scientists from five NASA centres, including the Kennedy Space Centre, have visited the MTC and are particularly interested in teaming up on projects involving the manufacture of complex and high-stress components through AM.
