Ushering In The Next Generation Of Aviation

Design with Freedom

Explore new horizons as 3D printing gives the manufacturers the flexibility for easy and seamless design iteration and verification. Designs can be as complex or as simple as they need to be without the added costs.

Lightweighting

Reduce the weight of aircraft parts and components by up to 60%. 3D printing enables engineers to design parts with intricate geometries that provide the durability of production-grade thermoplastics while being significantly lighter allowing aircrafts to consume less fuel and emit less carbon dioxide.

Supply Chain Consolidation

Minimize the number of suppliers and outsourcing needed as 3D printing brings the job in-house, saving costs and time.

Safety

3D printed aircraft parts are tested thoroughly and are run through numerous safety regulations approvals to ensure a standard of quality and reliability for use in the air.

Passenger Experience

Create 3D printed interior parts as manufacturers are able to differentiate the passenger experience with unique, low-volume elements that are customized to the end customer’s needs and styles.

Toolless Production

3D printing technology allows for maximum design flexibility in production while requiring less energy and raw materials than traditional manufacturing processes. Parts and components can be produced as needed, saving valuable storage space.
