This is, admittedly, one of the strangest times to be discussing the latest of the aerospace industry. We are at an interesting juncture, to say the least: one in which the commercial aviation industry is virtually at a standstill due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, but the space launch industry is entering a new and exciting phase. To put it into perspective: in the same month that many airlines posted record losses, SpaceX became the first commercial operator to successfully launch NASA astronauts into space.
Though a strange time, it is perhaps also the ideal time to look at the ways in which the aerospace industry is using additive manufacturing to bolster its growth and evolve. Our sixth AM Focus eBook is centered on AM in Aerospace, and seeks to boost the aerospace industry at this inflection point and present additive manufacturing as a potential, if not obvious, way forward. AM is uniquely positioned to help the commercial aviation industry get back on its feet through more efficient aircraft and flexible production and maintenance, but it is also playing a key role in the advancement of new modes of air travel. Read our latest eBook for insights into many facets of AM in Aerospace, including a detailed market analysis by 3dpbm founder Davide Sher, enlightening interviews with ESA and nTopology representatives and more.
3dpbm’s eBook can be viewed by scrolling through the document above or downloaded for viewing on your favorite mobile device. In our effort to maintain an open discourse and open access to AM news, the publication is free to access. We at 3dpbm have been eagerly following the progress of aerospace in additive manufacturing for years, and are pleased to put the segment in the spotlight in a new, reader-friendly way.
