3D Printing in aerospace

3D Printing brings new materials solutions to aerospace industry

Investment in 3D printing in the aerospace industry has been a noticeable trend in recent years. The use of final elements produced with 3D printers in aviation is increasingly seen as the optimal solution for companies operating in this industry. Thanks to the use of a new range of materials and optimal 3D printing technology, it is possible to introduce cheaper, lighter and more durable components into production.

01

Aerospace

Production line with 3D Printer

The meaning of 3D Print for the aerospace industry is due to the possibility of breaking existing trade-offs in terms of performance.

Because the cost of a single Printed element production doesn’t change with a whole series, it means that 3D Printing is the technology that ignores the capital required to achieve the scale capital.

Aerospace

Prototyping with 3D Printer

3D Printing provides the flexibility to create geometrically complex parts that are difficult to build during a traditional production process.

Additive technology allows the creation of parts with sections such as internal cavities and lattice structures that help reduce the weight of elements without sacrificing their mechanical performance. Constant access to each layer and all geometry enables the production of complex parts in the form of one-component systems.

Aerospace

Small lot production with 3D Printing

3D printing no longer fills only the niche of rapid prototyping. Our 3D printing technologies allow for the creation of final components in small lot production

3D printing increases the flexibility of production and its scope. A large variety of 3D printed elements is possible without the costs of rearranging and setting up production lines. This is crucial as the aerospace industry, unlike other mass production industries, is largely geared towards custom production.

Aerospace

Multi-material 3D print

VSHAPER 500 3D Printers that are able to print with two materials during one 3D printing process allows the production of parts with different properties.

For example, one section of the aerospace may be constructed of flame retardant material, while the other divisions of extremely lightweight material.

Elements printed with thermoplastic materials intended for engineering applications help to significantly reduce the weight of the whole system, contributing to the improvement of fuel efficiency.

Servicing with 3D Printed parts

3D Printing can minimalize the considerable costs and space required for storing available parts.

The damaged parts of devices caused by its exploitation, and the delivery of which takes a long time or is impossible, can be successfully printed in the time that the problem occurs.

3D Printers produce less waste than other machines, which is a significant attribute when using expensive materials.
