Our aerospace 3D printing service is a perfect match for the needs of the aeronautics industry, which requires leading-edge technologies that are reliable, efficient and offering exemplary repeatability, to manufacture lightweight and durable components.
The benefits of an additive manufacturing solution meeting aerospace standards:
No tooling required
Assembly consolidation and part count reduction
Design freedom for complex parts
High performance thermoplastics certified for aerospace
Machine park configured for aircraft interiors (material and process specifications, certified ULTEM 9085 resin material, B-Basis design allowables dataset, etc.)
Leveraging our 3D printing expertise to produce individual units or short series brings you substantial time and financial savings. In most cases, additive manufacturing is faster than traditional manufacturing and requires no tooling.
To produce functional prototypes, we use engineering thermoplastics with properties comparable to those of the final parts. 3D-printed functional prototypes speed up your parts’ development by allowing them to be tested and corrected both quickly and efficiently. In addition to the above-mentioned parts, we also make:
When the aircraft recently underwent an experimental tail-wiring upgrade, technicians at Bell Xworx opted for the industrial FDM technology with the Fortus system to build tough polycarbonate wiring conduits. Technicians installed the branching conduits in six mating sections inside the Osprey’s twin vertical stabilizers for on-the-ground testing of its wiring.
Unlike traditional methods (machining, injection, liquid resin casting, etc.), the Solaxis solution avoids expenses associated with programming and investing in complex and expensive tooling to produce small quantities.
Flexible delivery also yields the benefits of LEAN Manufacturing, thanks to just-in- time (JIT) sourcing.
