Additive Manufacturing has already transformed the Aerospace Industry, with the impact being felt more deeply with every passing day. Engine and turbine parts as well as cabin interior components are areas, which this technology has deeply impacted. This is where the benefits of innovative Additive Manufacturing technology come to the fore: functional components with complex geometries, optimum light weighting solutions and defined aerodynamic properties can be manufactured quickly and cost-effectively.
Leading OEMS and tier 1 suppliers have already integrated Additive Manufacturing into their planning of future production strategies and utilizing the benefit of this technology which includes complex design, assembly simplification, cost reduction, material saving and weight reduction which in turn lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Additive manufacturing (AM) is disrupting the industry and accelerating the way parts are designed and manufactured. The technology offers huge potential in the creation of Aerospace components, with the ability to design intricate parts in much shorter cycle times than conventional methods.
