This sector is increasingly turning to Additive Manufacturing technology for aerospace prototypes and series production parts which can be used for testing or as final production components, as it designs parts to make the most of the technology’s benefits.
Our portfolio of materials now includes Flame Retardant Nylon 12, which is being adopted by the aerospace industry for end-use parts in behind panel applications such as low pressure aircraft ducting, environmental control systems ducting and air outlet valves.
Any reduction in weight in an aerospace part delivers a quantifiable reduction in the lifetime CO2 emission of that plane. Metal and plastic AM parts are being designed and built to aerospace engineers’ specifications and are being used for a range of applications.
The technology also allows for complex geometries to be produced – often with intricate internal lattices – which maintain strength whilst reducing weight and resulting in a final part which can perform multiple functions and fit into a non-standard space.
We are producing parts that are being sent into space in satellites as well as manufacturing parts for major aerospace companies.
