Today, Additive Manufacturing (AM) is widely recognized as a key enabling technology for various industrial sectors such as automotive, machine-tool but also the space industry. Metallic AM opens promising perspectives for performance and costs optimization featuring enhanced functions. Each of these perspectives were harnessed in the work reported here, which consists in the redesign and qualification of a space slipring assembly rotor (SRA rotor) based on an Additive Manufacturing process.
