Primus Aerospace—a leading contract manufacturing partner to aerospace, defense & space OEMs—purchased a Ti6Al4V Sapphire metal additive manufacturing (AM) system from Velo3d.
The 3D printer is dedicated to titanium material and will be used solely for aerospace & defense applications. Primus will use this printer to produce cube satellites, hypersonics and turbine engines.
The Colorado-based company is a top-tier supplier for the leading defense primes and the majority of aerospace OEMs, including Lockheed, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, and Raytheon.
The partnership with VELO3D will enable Primus Aerospace to deliver unique design freedom and high-quality AM services to customers. Primus is looking to unlock design and manufacturing capabilities that will enable the realization of previously unattainable geometries and optimized solutions as well as the exploration of novel aerospace applications.
