GOLD COAST, November 29, 2023 – Australian launch services company, Gilmour Space Technologies, has selected EOS to be its additive manufacturing (AM) partner as it transitions from research and development (R&D) and prototyping, to launch and manufacturing.
The Queensland-based company is months away from attempting Australia’s first sovereign orbital launch from the Bowen Orbital Spaceport in the state’s north, and plans to increase its launch cadence in the coming years.
“We are excited to work with EOS and Additive Australia to enhance the in-house manufacturing capability for our Australian-made orbital launch vehicles and satellites,” said David Doyle, Program Manager for Launch Vehicles at Gilmour Space.
“It is really quite amazing to see the rapid innovation from organisations like Gilmour Space,” said Terrance Oh, Senior Vice President, EOS Asia Pacific. “Metal additive manufacturing allows for generative design and fast production, and now we are seeing the rules for developing space launch vehicles rewritten. We are thrilled to play a part of Gilmour Space’s ride to deliver satellites to low Earth Orbit.”
“Through our partnership with EOS we are proud to have worked with the Gilmour Space team to establish their metal AM facility, and we look forward to supporting them in their transition from prototyping to manufacturing,” added Kevin Hazlehurst, Director at Additive Australia.
This project is part of the Australian Space Manufacturing Network, which is supported by funding from the Australian Government under the Modern Manufacturing Strategy.
