Satellite to Use Additive-Manufactured Components Directly Exposed to Space

Support structures are produced through FDM in plastic material as strong as aluminum. Internal complexity is part of the reason for producing the parts through 3D printing.


The Case for Off-Site Innovation

Okuma says the point of its aerospace technology center is to provide a place for manufacturers to perform all the trial-and-error they need to perfect a new process. It’s also a place to find and consult with sources of up-to-date manufacturing tec...


Additive Manufacturing of Brackets Saves 1 Kilogram per Satellite

Because of complexity, material and quantity, spacecraft and satellite components are good candidates for additive production.


Build the Machine around the Workpiece

Rather than fitting a part into an existing machine, modular machining units enable building a custom machine particularly suited for that workpiece. This approach is best for large production runs of specialized parts.


Metal Additive Manufacturing for Parts up to 7 Feet Tall

Sample part in Inconel 625 challenges the size constraint usually associated with powder-based metal additive manufacturing.


Numbers Describe Additive Manufacturing’s Advantage

Airbus quantifies the material and energy savings it will realize on parts that are 3D printed.


GE Brings Production-Volume Additive Manufacturing to Alabama

Company says the site could ultimately have 50 additive manufacturing machines. Nozzles made here will be shipped to an even newer manufacturing site in Indiana.


Video: World’s Largest Additive Metal Manufacturing Plant

GE Aviation facility in Italy will have capacity for 60 machines making metal production parts through additive manufacturing.


Profiler Expected to Exceed 100 Cubic Inches per Minute in Titanium

Five-axis, five-spindle machine aims at reduced cost per piece for production of large aircraft components.


TRAM Conference Registration Now Open

The two-day aerospace manufacturing event sponsored by Boeing returns to IMTS.
