We are very proud of our participation and contribution to the RAMFASAT experiment, a collaboration between FEAC Engineering, 3DHUB Greece and OHB Hellas that took place under the framework of AMable initiative, between July 2021 and May 2022.
RAMFASAT is an experiment that utilizes topology optimization and additive manufacturing techniques early in the design phase and manufacturing process, to redesign a critical component of the ADC (Attitude Determination and Control) System for Micro-Satellites.
The aim of this experiment was to:
- Achieve significant mass reduction and thus launch cost reduction
- Eliminate the limitations and restrictions from well-established manufacturing methods
- Simplify the construction and assembly of the product
The final printed component, made of PEEK and NYLON in two different configurations, fulfilled all established requirements, paving the way for more widespread use of AM polymer applications in space.
