ESA OSIP Project conclusion!

šŸš€ Exciting News: Another Project Concluded! šŸ›°ļø

We are thrilled to share the successful wrap-up of Project OSIP, funded by theĀ European Space AgencyĀ via the Open Space Innovation Platform!

Our focus? To develop new 3D-printableĀ magneticĀ materials forĀ #spaceĀ applications. šŸŒ

In particular, we developed composite materials based on soft magnetic fillers (potentially sourced from resources on the Moon’s surface) and high-performance polymers. These materials are 3D-printable via the common filament-based technique, allowing the possibility of easilyĀ 3DprintingĀ bonded magnets with unparalleled freedom of shape. šŸŒ›

But wait, there’s more! šŸŽ‰ We also designed and optimized a low-power brushless motor for space mechanisms using these innovative materials. A demonstrator of a motor component, the stator, showcased the groundbreaking potential of this technology.

This project demonstrated the feasibility of building a fully 3D-printed electric motor thatā€™s not only recyclable but can also be manufactured in low or zero gravity.

We are grateful to all our team, whose hard work and dedication made this engineering research possible! šŸ’Ŗ
