Pre-ceramic resin invented by HRL’s Additive Manufacturing group has been delivered to the International Space Station aboard the Cygnus unmanned resupply spacecraft. HRL’s material was then part of the first ever stereolithography 3D printing operations in space.
Center will focus on breakthrough 3D printing technologies in ceramics and metallurgy. HRL Laboratories, LLC, has established a Center for Additive Materials to accelerate development of 3D printing of high-performance materials.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, has been selected as a 2017 R&D 100 Finalist with the entry Additively Manufactured High-Temperature Polymer-Derived Ceramics.
HRL has received an award as part of NASA’s Space Technology Research, Development, Demonstration, and Infusion program to develop additive manufactured (3D-printed) ceramic rocket engine components.
HRL Laboratories, LLC announced today that it will be developing new materials for hypersonic vehicles under the Materials Development for Platforms (MDP) program through the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). These new materials aim to reduce the weight and cost of vehicle aeroshells while withstanding the extreme environment encountered during hypersonic flight.
