According to several recent market reports, aerospace accounts for about 1/4 of the additive manufacturing markets and offers numerous benefits to the sector, including part consolidation, on-demand manufacturing, faster time to market, decreased downtime, and light-weighting, which leads to cost/fuel savings. In short, additive manufacturing is a potential game-changer for the aerospace industry. This session will:
• describe when to, and when not to, employ additive manufacturing into the aerospace platform
• how additive manufacturing can lead to significant savings in cost, labor, and lead time
• and will present a case study illustrating the benefit of additive manufacturing in aerospace platforms.
