Aerospace was one of the first industries to embrace Additive Manufacturing. In recent years, we’ve seen companies adopt AM to both drive the design of new, high-efficiency components that are impossible to manufacture with other methods and to optimise the operational efficiencies of their MRO supply chains.Continue reading “Additive Manufacturing Innovation Trends in Aerospace”

High performance composite materials has taken additive manufacturing technologies to new heights with the production of structural parts for the new generation of Unmanned Aerial System and Space mission.
The paper describes the application of reinforced composite materials developed for motorsport industry that are now finding inroads into uses in the construction of 3D-printed functional parts of UAVs and Space SmallSats.Continue reading “Streamlining UAV construction via Additive Manufacturing and composite materials”
Aerospace 3D Printing Conference welcomes Metal Additive Manufacturing as media partner
Metal AM magazine is the leading news source for commercial and technical developments in the metal AM / 3D printing industry. Published quarterly in print and online, each issue features a number of exclusive in-depth articles and special features on metal AM, as well as our extensive industry news rundown. Each new issue of Metal AM, as well as the complete archive, is available to download free of charge.Metal AM, or 3D printing, offers the possibility to produce complex parts without the design constraints of traditional manufacturing routes. Metal MA, also known as metal 3D printing, offers unrivalled design freedom with the ability to manufacture parts from a wide range of materials.
Components that would not have even been possible just a few years ago can now be made to high standards using a wide range of metal powders. No longer solely a prototyping technology, Additive Manufacturing is now being used for the production of series components for the most demanding applications.
Additive Manufacturing, also referred to as 3D Printing, is a technology that produces three-dimensional parts layer by layer from a material, be it polymer or metal based. The method relies on a digital data file being transmitted to a machine that then builds the component.Continue reading “Metal Additive Manufacturing is media partner of Aerospace 3D Printing Conference”

Anisoprining is a new way of design and production things from composites with continuous fibers. Anisoprinted parts are stronger, lighter and cheaper than their counterparts from the other materials.
This approach to producing objects can significantly change the manufacturing process in many fields including aerospace.Continue reading “3d printing composites for aerospace: challenges, applications and use cases”
