It is common knowledge in the space industry that Moog has been a market leader in the field of in-space propulsion. For years Moog has provided thrusters, feed systems and components, and tanks to the leading satellite providers around the globe.
A New Way of looking at Metal Additive Manufacturing Processes - VeriPart Issue #1
Our first forays into additive manufacturing (AM) go back over 15 years. With our background in manufacturing of complex parts, we could easily see the value of direct digital fabrication.
Certification of Production AM Parts - VeriPart Issue #2
The introduction of additive manufacturing into critical applications present some challenges. Examples of critical applications can be found in commercial and military aviation, manned and unmanned space applications, and medical applications.
Additive Manufacturing Reshaping Logistics - VeriPart Issue #3
Imagine a scenario where lives depend upon a mission being flown off the deck of an aircraft carrier far out at sea. The only available aircraft has just been grounded with a failed critical part. There is no part inventory on the carrier. But we do have a 3d printer and a stock of powder aboard...
Process Development and Control in Metal Additive Manufacturing
The Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) process used in Moog’s Additive Manufacturing Center (AMC) is complex with a multitude of variables, any one of which…if incorrect…can result in poor-quality and unusable parts.
