Space Tech Expo Europe is set to take place in Bremen, Germany, from November 19–21, 2019, and will feature a special panel dedicated to the area of Additive Manufacturing for space. Now in its third year, the conference and exhibition encompasses the areas of manufacturing, design, test and engineering services for spacecraft, subsystems and space-qualified components. 

Organised by Smarter Shows Ltd, Brighton, UK, the three-day event will bring together professionals in the space industry to discuss current trends, developments and challenges in this market, as well as covering new technologies. Attendees are expected to include engineers, manufacturers and decision-makers at commercial space, aerospace and defence organisations, start-ups, and Europe’s space agencies, as well as professionals from similar organisations outside of Europe.

One of the primary challenges of Additive Manufacturing in the space industry is the quality control and post-processing of AM components for this safety-critical field. During a panel at Space Tech Expo USA in May 2019, post-processing management was noted as the next step towards the full integration of AM parts in space applications. 

Dr Mohsen Seifi, Director of Global Additive Manufacturing Programs at ASTM International, and the panel moderator, stated, “Post-processing is a major step in the whole AM value chain. This is really an important step that essentially adds trust and confidence into the technology.” Dr Seifi will also moderate the AM-focused panel at Space Tech Expo Europe 2019, titled ‘Taking the Next Step in Additive Manufacturing for Space: Design, Quality Assurance and High-Volume Production’.

Space Tech Expo Europe 2019 is expected to see more than 4000 visitors in attendance, and will feature over 400 exhibitors. Further information and registration details are available via the event website.
