Additive Manufacturing for Aircraft Interiors – doing the trick for the In-Service Market
June 30, 2020 @ 03:00 - 16:00
Additive Manufacturing is increasingly used across industry and has found its way into Aerospace. There it is moving beyond initial metal applications at OEMs, into the In-Service Market, in particular in form of polymer 3D printing for Interiors. This webinar discusses the future use of polymer AM parts in the Aircraft Cabin, it’s potential for cost saving, design improvement and shorter lead times, as well as the hurdles that are yet to be overcome, regarding certification, availability of suitable raw materials, investments and legal aspects. A wide spreading of AM manufacturing also has the potential to significantly change the supply chain setup of the Aero industry, impacting small and large suppliers, as distributed manufacturing moves closer to becoming a reality. Furthermore, new business models for spare parts and part design data may emerge, along with new services, which brings a need to tackle challenges around IP and regulation.
Our Panelists are: – Stephan Keil, Director Industrialisation, AM Global (Moderator) – Markus Glasser, Senior Vice President EMEA, EOS – Vinu Vijayan, Business Development Manager EOS – Frederic Becel, Design Manager, CVE, Innovation Leader Aircraft Modification Division, Air France – Karl Bock, Principal Design Engineer, Aircraft Modification Team, P21J Design Organisation, Lufthansa Technik
Hear our high profile panel exchange their views on: – Where airlines see the value of AM cabin parts, and how they can enter the AM journey – What new business opportunities this brings for Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Providers (MROs) – How certification of alternative cabin parts can be managed – What the AM industry can do to support MROs and airlines – Why this can reshape the Aero Supply Chain for the future – What new business models may emerge in the future
