Material constraints and diversity are major barriers to turning 3D printing into a production process. Goodfellow has a growing line of additive manufacturing (AM) raw materials and is continually increasing its production supply with the advancement of constantly evolving AM technology for more than three decades.
Goodfellow supplied platinum wires to aid an aerospace project. The Cassini-Huygens project was the first human-made object to land on a world in the distant outer solar system.
PMMA light guide supplied by Goodfellow on an aerospace project has helped to identify charged particles as part of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) on board the International Space Station.
Goodfellow has provided bespoke alloys for use by a world-leading aerospace manufacturer focused on satellites and engines. The client develops, produces and sells engines for commercial and military aircraft and satellites as well as offering a complete range of support services to airlines, armed forces and other operators, including fleet management.
Goodfellow provided the materials necessary for the development of an electric race car in the Formula Student project, which is an international engineering design competition comprising hundreds of teams across the world. These teams competed with their vehicles at a series of international events. With 8 cars in the portfolio, Goodfellow supported the development of the two latest prototypes, the FST 07e and FST 08e.
Wire provided by Goodfellow has been applied in the development of technical devices for the Defence sector. The components of these electrical devices are used by the army in a number of countries around Europe for different tactical applications. The quantities of the materials used were a few kilometres of wire.
The characteristics of glass provide the basis for the development of innovative glass formulations that can result in novel solutions to high-tech challenges. Goodfellow has thorough knowledge of glass formulations which is required for the raw materials to be used.
The client applies innovation with its projects and has core skills in measurement, motion control, healthcare, spectroscopy and manufacturing. Goodfellow has built a strong relationship with this client which has stemmed from providing both high quality and accurately measured materials for more than three decades.
