DURANGO, Colo. (Agile Space Industries PR) – Agile Space Industries, an aerospace propulsion innovator founded in 2009, has acquired additive manufacturing (AM) leader, Tronix3D, to continue their mission of innovating in-space propulsion systems. The newly integrated entity will be known as Agile Additive and will extend the innovations of Tronix3D in printing exotic alloys for complex, high-performance aerospace components to transform how space companies execute their most demanding missions.
Today’s space missions demand propulsion systems that are customized, high performance, and that can be fielded in months rather than years. Agile Space Industries has demonstrated that by incorporating AM, tailored propulsion technologies can be advanced from design to hot fire in under two weeks, and high performance flight hardware delivered well within new space timelines. The acquisition of Tronix3D enables Agile Space Industries to further accelerate their propulsion delivery schedules, enhance technical assurance of propulsion products, and develop innovative intellectual property around metal AM.
“Having worked with Tronix3D as a supplier, we were continually impressed with their ability to develop new proprietary processes for working with these very challenging materials ...
