Anisoprint, a CFC 3D printing solution provider, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Nanoracks Space Outpost Europe, a leader in the commercial utilization of the International Space Station, to strengthen its position as a space technology developer and become a part of the low Earth orbit and lunar economy.

Since Anisoprint was selected for pre-incubation in ESRIC’s Startup Support Program to adjust continuous fiber 3D printing technology for microgravity conditions, the team has made great strides toward expanding the resources network. Anisoprint signed the MoU with Nanoracks Space Outpost Europe to secure demonstration and validation of continuous fiber coextrusion (CFC) technology capacities in orbit.

“We are excited to join forces with such an experienced and well-respected in source industry partner: adjusting CFC technology for microgravity is the first step, the next is to deploy the technology in orbit together with Nanoracks Space Outpost Europe,” said Dmitrii Prokopiuk, the Head of Space Development at Anisoprint.

As we already know, there is a huge demand for on-site production of parts and components in space due to the logistical challenges associated with depending on the supply of parts and components from Earth, as well as the time, and financial, expense.

On site manufacturing minimizes delivery cost and shape limitations, it also reduces the number of delivery missions. The patented Anisoprint CFC technology creates zero waste and, therefore, does not increase the amount of space debris. In addition to this, it is fully automated manufacturing that does not require manual labor.

“With our plans to develop orbit stations and other space facilities to serve the market needs at the best, it is getting more and more crucial – the role of these innovative in-orbit manufacturing machines. We are looking forward to experiencing the CFC 3D-printing capabilities in our portfolio,” said Veronica La Regina, Director of Business Development at Nanoracks Europe.
