Project MELT wins TCT AEROSPACE APPLICATION AWARD 2018
Project MELT goal was to design, develop and test a fully functional ALM breadboard model (3D printer), able to work under the ISS’s (International Space Station) microgravity conditions and 3D print with engineering polymers with high end mechanical and thermal properties. It was developed by an international consortium composed by SONACA Space GmbH, BEEVERYCREATIVE (tech leader), OHB-System AG and Active Space Technologies SA. Back in May 2018, BEEVERYCREATIVE revealed that the 3D printer prototype had been delivered to its end user, the European Space Agency (ESA), and at TCT award ceremony on September 26th in Birmingham UK, the project was awarded with the TCT AEROSPACE APPLICATION AWARD 2018.
