JetX will be attending the 22nd TCT Show hosted at the NEC in Birmingham from the 26th to the 28th of September!
TCT Show is one of the world’s leading events focused on 3D manufacturing technologies and in it continues to deliver business-critical insights on 3D printing, additive manufacturing, CAD/CAE, metrology and inspection. By bringing together dozens of inspirational speakers, an expansive show floor with over 250 exhibitors, ground-breaking product launches, specialist technology tracks, a dedicated start-up zone and many more interactive show floor attractions, TCT Show continues to set the agenda for the industry.
This year we are kindly hosted by our sponsor, Formfutura. The Netherlands-based high quality filament manufacturer has been supporting our projects for almost two years and as a matter of fact, the X-Plorer 1 has been 3D-printed exclusively using Formfutura EasyFil (TM) filaments.
The X-Plorer 1 will be on-display for the duration of the show before making the journey back to Glasgow for further testing. Come down to stand E70 to check the engine, talk to team members for more information on our future plans and even get your own 3D-printed JetX keyring (while stocks last)! The show is free to attend and you can sign up by following the link below.
See you there!
Our applications are now open for more vacancies than ever before! For the first time, applicants can not only choose to apply to a specific team, but also to a specific program.
Our recruitment this year coincides with the announcement of a second, brand-new engine program that will run in parallel with the X-Plorer 2. Named Kronos, the project will focus on the development of a low bypass military jet engine that will aim to balance cruise and combat performance!
This is not just an exciting development for our portfolio but also shows our commitment to the student population. Demand to get involved in JetX has always been high and this both allows us to recruit more of the best young engineers, as well as expand our focus as far as jet engine design is concerned.
Also for the first time, we have a number of non-technical roles available related to sponsorship, outreach, marketing, events and students of any background are eligible to apply! To find out more information about all roles and options related to applications, please follow the link below. Applications will remain open until Sunday, September 24th, end of day!
Jet-x.org is the latest website to be featured by EEWeb as the 'Engineering Site of the Day'!
EEWeb is one the largest electrical engineering communities for hardware engineers across the globe. AspenCore manages the website along with EETimes, Embedded.com, EDN.com and other tools related to hardware including PCBs. AspenCore operates as a subsidiary of Fortune 500 and global electronic products and services provider, Arrow Electronics. JetX president, Chris Triantafyllou said:
"Electronics are a very special part of our project. We paired a functional 3D-printed model with a complete and seamlessly integrated electronics system, adding tremendous potential to what we could achieve in terms of data acquisition. Even in a simulated testing environment, this means we are able to quantify design and performance improvements through actual testing. We are very glad to be featured on EEWeb's website which shows that work we do has attracted the attention of the aerospace, 3D-printing and, now, electronics industries.
