3D Printing for Aerospace & Defense Applications
Additive manufacturing/3D printing and the aerospace industry have become the perfect partnership. The ability to create parts with lattice designs, as well as innovative, new features has improved weight and airflow efficiencies in aerospace parts – saving valuable time and money!
Benefits of 3D Printing in Aerospace Components
With access to incredibly accurate lattice design software, 3D Parts Unlimited is able to create ultra lightweight parts, which is critical in the aerospace industry. Plus, we can produce quick turnaround times for 3D printed aerospace maintenance components.
Aerospace 3D Printing Materials
Carbon fiber plastics are the most common 3D printing materials used in the aerospace industry.
We frequently print with:
- Markforged Carbon Fiber Reinforced Nylon
- Electro Optical Systems (EOS) Metals
3D Printing Processes for Aerospace Applications
Most aerospace applications utilize Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Multi Jet Fusion (MJF), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) or Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS). These 3D printing processes allow for lattice structures and lightweighting applications, as well as intricate feature designs.
- Functional Prototyping
- Jigs and Fixtures
- Fuel Savings
- Production Components
- Unconventional Components
