MetShape GmbH, Pforzheim, Germany, has joined the European Space Agency (ESA) Business Incubation Centre Baden-Württemberg, a network supporting start-ups that are either pursuing innovative business ideas related to space technology, or that have the potential to become a reliable supplier to the space industry.

After convincing the ESA’s Tender Evaluation Board of the potential for its sinter-based Additive Manufacturing processes, the funding and additional benefits of the network are expected to support MetShape in achieving its goal to become a key supplier to the space industry.
