Elementum 3D’s A6061-RAM2 establishes success for NASA Artemis program
An e-pump printed by Elementum 3D out of their commercially available A6061-RAM2 alloy was successfully demonstrated by Masten Space Systems. This is a significant milestone toward development of a compact, high-power density, high performance electric pump. The electric fuel pump is designed by Masten Space Systems and P3 Technologies for the NASA Artemis program to help humans return to the moon. The e-pump offers weight, cost, and performance advantages over turbine driven pumps commonly used for propulsion systems.
