Aerojet Rocketdyne said late last week it has acquired additive manufacturing company 3D Material Technologies. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The company provides 3D printing services to the aerospace, defense, medical and industrial markets, according to Aerojet Rocketdyne.
“The acquisition complements Aerojet Rocketdyne’s industry-leading capabilities to develop and produce metal alloy additive manufacturing parts for aerospace propulsion and power systems,” the company added. “Aerojet Rocketdyne has qualified production parts for the RL10 and RS-25 liquid rocket engines and sees growth opportunities for these complex, high value systems.”
Additionally Aerojet Rocketdyne said it's working on using additive manufacturing for its hypersonic propulsion systems.
3DMT will continue to operate with its current employees at its 28,000-square-foot facility in Daytona Beach, FL, the company said.
