Lowe's and Made in Space
Lowe's Innovation Labs has partnered with Made in Space to launch the first commercial 3D printer to space. In 2016, the AMF printer was installed on the International Space Station, where it is being used to make tools and parts for astronauts. This is just the beginning of a partnership to bring tools to space and technology to Earth.
Together with Made in Space, Lowe's is advancing mankind's ability to manufacture things off of the planet Earth, and developing terrestrial applications for technologies rugged enough for extreme space environments. We are continuing a storied human history of pioneering and exploring our universe, and know that by committing to research in space, there are myriad benefits we realize on Earth - and soon at Lowe's.
