Romar Features in Space Outlook

Rocket Liftoff

Romar Engineering has long had a global reputation for our expertise in elastomeric and medical device manufacturing, and as we reported last year, we’ve recently expanded our capability in advanced manufacturing… in exciting ways.

With state-of-the-art technology including our DMG Mori Lasertec 65 3D printer (one of only three in commercial settings globally) and our Leitz PMM, we have full capability in the development, prototyping, testing and manufacture of superior quality components… plus the ability to repair, renew and replace existing machinery.

It’s a capability unique to Australia, and with enormous potential for sectors including mining, defence and aerospace – and we’re thrilled to be working towards superior manufacturing solutions for our burgeoning space industry.

Romar invests in rocket capability

We recently showcased this capability in an article in leading industry magazine, Space OUTLOOK. Here’s an excerpt:

From the medical device side of the business, Romar already has a component on the International Space Station through its expertise in silicon moulding, and the hope is that rocket componentry will be the next of the company’s products in space.

“Here we are, a little company in Sefton in Sydney manufacturing a part which is on the International Space Station,” says Lipman.

“That is because we punch way above our weight in the moulding of silicon, and I think we can do the same thing in regard to supplying 3D components for rockets.”
