Anisoprint and Nanoracks ambition to enable onsite manufacturing with CFC 3D printing and reduce the number of delivery missions

Continuous fiber 3D printing company Anisoprint continues to carve out a place in the AM space industry. Through a recently signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Nanoracks Space Outpost Europe –  an organization that provides deployment of nanosatellites from the ISS, accomodation of experiments internally and externally of the ISS – Anisoprint will strengthen its position as a space technology developer and become a part of the low Earth orbit and lunar economy.

It looks like Anisoprint is currentlty at the right place and time for these “space mission” opportunities. Beyond the company’s technology capabilities that are increasingly recognized across several sectors of activity, the recent selection of the company for pre-incubation in ESRIC’s Startup Support Program may have weighed in its favour in the signing of this partnership.

Furthermore, its unique positioning as a Luxembourg company makes Anisoprint at the center of European space resources R&D, and in a position where it can play to its strengths to develop unique innovative solutions that satisfy the needs of the space sector and secure the future orbital economy.

Dmitrii Prokopiuk, Anisoprint Head of Space Development: “We are excited to join forces with such an experienced and well-respected in source industry partner: adjusting CFC technology for microgravity is the first step, the next is to deploy the technology in orbit together with Nanoracks Space Outpost Europe.”


That being said, Anisoprint’s efforts aim to demonstrate that its CFC (continuous fiber coextrusion) technology capacities can meet the huge demand for on-site production of parts and components in orbit. Indeed, not only do customers not want to depend on the supply of spare parts and components from the Earth, but delivery from the Earth is expensive and time-consuming. 


In this regard, Anisoprint explains in a press release that on site manufacturing minimizes delivery cost and shape limitations, it also reduces the number of delivery missions. The patented Anisoprint CFC technology creates zero waste which is environmentally efficient and does not increase the amount of space debris. In addition, it is fully automated manufacturing that does not require manual labor.


Veronica La Regina, Director Business Development at Nanoracks Europe: “With our plans to develop orbit stations and other space facilities to serve the market needs at the best, it is getting more and more crucial – the role of these innovative in-orbit manufacturing machines. We are looking forward to experiencing the CFC 3D-printing capabilities in our portfolio.”
