3D printing of parts is a new technology that has come up with the prospective to alter the way enterprise build new products, together with parts for defence and aerospace. The aerospace and defense industry is a great example of utilization of additive manufacturing (AM) with a clear value proposition and the ability to create parts that are stronger and lighter than parts made using traditional manufacturing.
This production of 3D printing tools has evolved in a short span of time and is able of producing complex components among different types of materials which includes titanium, steel, aluminum and different variety of plastics. The aerospace and defense industry was a very early adopter of 3D printing and still continues to contribute heavily to its development. Some aerospace companies began using this technology as early as 1989 and over the next couple of decades, the adoption of 3D printing increased […]
Researchers from UNIDEMI at the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa in Portugal took note of the fact that, while 3D printing...
