We are very proud of our participation and contribution to the RAMFASAT experiment, a collaboration between FEAC Engineering3DHUB 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: ​

  1. Achieve significant mass reduction and thus launch cost reduction​
  2. Eliminate the limitations and restrictions from well-established manufacturing methods
  3. 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.
