Agile Space Industries Acquires Metal 3D Printing Service Bureau Tronix3DJune 15, 2021
Agile Space Industries, Durango, CO, a provider of mission-optimized propulsion solutions, has acquired metal 3D printing company Tronix3D, Mt. Pleasant, PA, and rebranded the newly integrated entity as Agile Additive. The acquisition accelerates Agile's development, design and delivery of complex, high-performance aerospace components. With the acquisition, Agile extends its capabilities across the aerospace supply chain to drive faster delivery and enhanced technical assurance of its propulsion products. Agile Additive also will continue to develop and expand its intellectual property around 3D printing of exotic metal alloys.
"Having worked with Tronix3D as a supplier, we were continually impressed with its ability to develop new proprietary processes for working with these very challenging materials and geometries of our next-generation space propulsion systems,” says Jeffrey Max, CEO of Agile Space Industries. “We realized that if we integrated these competencies internally at Agile, it would further accelerate the innovation, quality and timeliness of the products that we deliver to our clients."
"Parts that used to be complex or even impossible to manufacture now are achievable because of our advancements in 3D printing of novel alloys,” adds Buck Helfferich, president of Agile Additive.
