Since the early days of additive manufacturing, the aerospace industry has been an important adopter. Adopter might not even be the best term, because the aerospace and AM industries have intersected in so many ways and evolved simultaneously: with aerospace companies investing significantly into AM technologies and accelerating their advancement and AM unlocking new and exciting opportunities for aerospace.
In this AM Focus eBook, we look at several areas of aerospace AM, from commercial aviation’s use of the technology in aircraft development and maintenance, to the space industry’s innovative implementation of 3D printing for satellites, rockets and more. We are very excited to present so much original, exclusive content in this digital publication from some of the leading players on both the aerospace and AM sides.
In the following pages you will find insights about aviation, including from Honeywell about the use and potential of AM for civil aviation, from Lufthansa Technik about its prolific AM Center in Hamburg and from Boom Supersonic about how AM has enabled the development of its supersonic aircraft. We then go beyond the stratosphere with original interviews with Launcher’s Tim Berry, Relativity Space’s Josh Brost and Velo3D’s Benny Buller. This eBook also features an excerpt from our recent podcast with Mike Curtis-Rouse from Catapult, an in-depth analysis chapter on how AM is vital to new space startups and a look back at some of the biggest AM stories in aerospace in recent years.
