Spacecraft and satellite systems are reliant on new and advanced manufacturing technologies. Vexon Space Technologies develop, design and manufacture of microsatellite components and systems for the space industry.
Since 2010 the founder of Vexon Space Technologies Dr Daniel Thomas has designed space hardware and has developed small lightweight satellites each weighing under 2kg for space customers. The small satellites have a multitude of uses (telecommunication, earth observation and scientific experimentation). They cost a fraction of the price to design, build, test, launch and operate over traditional satellites. The business now wishes to transition towards the manufacture of such structures and work with partners towards delivering a range of payloads for many different types of commercial and scientific missions.
The business focuses on 3D printing and fabricating lightweight carbon fibre composite, chassis and structural aerospace hardware elements. This rapidly growing commercial space applications market and our ability to manufacture prototypes and carryout small series productions plays a decisive role in ensuring future commercial success.
Because of the customer-specific requirements on aerospace parts, this matches up perfectly with our ability to offer additive manufacturing services. Additive manufacturing also enables the use of custom materials such as ceramics, copper alloys and carbon fibre that are very difficult and expensive to process conventionally. We manufacture microsatellite components and space hardware made from these advanced materials.
Vexon sustainably manufacture advanced aerospace carbon fibre structures and machine alloys and polymers in a precision way. We will do this through the use of additive manufacturing technology, laser engraving and micro machining. This is particularly attractive as it is a niche area of manufacturing. Using carbon fibre-based additive manufacturing revolutionises microsatellite fabrication.
Vexon has a vision to become a leader of deployable microsatellites. This will provide effective solutions today for the space-based services of the future. Lightweight structures that are built through additive manufacturing and laser/micro machined will create the next generation of advanced components.contact us
