3D Printing in AEROSPACE
Aerospace is one of the main industries that can benefit from developments in 3D Printing
The aerospace industry is a main market for additive manufacturing. This is not only because this sector has a long history of an early adopter of latest technology inventions, but also because it needs these inventions. Environmental performance restrictions, competitive market conditions and high manufacturing cost are just some of the challenges that aerospace faces today. And this is exactly where the benefits of additive manufacturing come to the fore: shorter production time, no required additional tooling, material savings and cost-efficiency are just some of the good reasons why aerospace companies should integrate 3D printing in their production strategies.
also called selective laser melting or selective laser sintering is the mostly used 3D prienting technique for production of aerospace components.
