Additive manufacturing of lightweight components for aerospace applications reduces fuel consumption, material costs, and CO2 emissions.
Engine and turbine parts are typical applications we see most leading aerospace companies producing. By integrating additive manufacturing into their production, complex geometries can be manufactured quickly and cost-effectively.
Since part production does not require tooling, production costs are reduced and small production runs are easily possible.
Lightweight structures manufactured using additive manufacturing are high strength and the material savings translate into reduced costs. As a result, airplanes consume significantly less fuel and emit less carbon dioxide.
