Elementum 3D, Erie, Colorado, USA, and Masten Space Systems, Mojave, California, USA, have completed successful hot fire testing of their jointly-developed PermiAM metal additively manufactured fuel injector, part of the NASA Phase I SBIR project.

Elementum 3D, an Additive Manufacturing research and development company that specialises in the creation of advanced metals, composites and ceramics, began working with aerospace manufacturing start-up Masten Space when the companies partnered on the NASA Tipping Point programme to bring Elementum 3D’s RAM AM process to rocket development by creating an aluminium MMC combustion chamber for the Masten 25k Broadsword Engine.
