Lena Space Rocket Nozzle
Benefit: Increased Component Complexity
Main Forming Process: Additive Manufacturing
End Use Sector: Aerospace
Material: Nickel


This component perfectly demonstrates the advantages Additive Manufacturing has over traditional manufacturing process to create small scale regenerative cooled rocket nozzles. Firstly, using AM to create the component allows the customer to reduce the number of complex manufacturing steps to create a regenerative cooled nozzle. The part can be made as one piece instead of multiple pieces that are then combined together at a later date, which drastically reduces lead times. Secondly, the design freedom AM gives the customer, unlocks the opportunity to create complex internal channels that can improve rocket efficiency and reusability.
