New free report explores the latest developments in aerospace additive manufacturing
From tooling, patterns, jigs, and fixtures to end-use production, aerospace’s use of additive manufacturing is recognized as being one of the most mature sectors. But with revenue passenger miles dropping by 66% and supply chain bottlenecks created by border closures, the pandemic proved to be a particularly challenging period for the aerospace industry.
While the commercial aerospace industry’s ability to adjust was tested the last two years, the aerospace AM/3DP community’s leadership drove technology, systems and resources across the spectrum—all of which is covered in the latest Additive Manufacturing 3D Printing Year in Review 2020-2021 report.
Explore this Year in Review, presented by Metrix in collaboration with America Makes, to learn:
- How industry leaders used pandemic-related challenges and the resulting excess production capacity to innovate new processes and materials, test distributed manufacturing networks utilizing AM, and focus on new applications.
- Which activities are accelerating AM applications, along with challenges that remain for increased use of AM.
- The latest software introductions, and the demonstrated importance of their integration with systems like ERP, MES, and QA.
- The primary factors driving an environment of growth, including production use, and how 90% of professionals expect increased application within the next year.
- Insights into major industry, business and technology trends, based on a recent survey of the AM/3DP community conducted by Metrix, An ASME Company.
With flight certification of additively manufactured parts, projects announced by both government and commercial entities, expanded consensus standards work, and more, growth of AM/3DP in aerospace applications has been substantial.
