Description

This growth insight analyzes the current presence of additive manufacturing in the global aerospace sector. While this is a global study, most of the additive manufacturing action is taking place in the Americas and Europe.

Additive manufacturing, commonly known as 3D printing, has existed in the aerospace sector for over a decade. Early on, the technology was used in the design phase to build prototypes and tooling. Now, although limited, it is routinely used for certified fly away parts fabrication by some OEMs, component suppliers, and vendors. Several methods of additive manufacturing exist, with computer-aided design (CAD) being the most common.

Opportunities await those companies that position themselves to capitalize on the many advantages that additive manufacturing offers. Another benefit is in terms of time saved - from concept to design.

This insight profiles the different methods of creating objects using additive manufacturing, and it provides an overview of how each is relative to aerospace. The profiles include:

• A brief description of the systems' mechanics
• The media format used
• The material types produced
• The post-production process requirements
• Aerospace usage

The pros and cons of additive manufacturing are discussed. OEM and component manufacturing organizations are recognized for ambitious contributions that have advanced the technology. Several companies within the aerospace sector are highlighted, along with their key achievements. One of the key challenges is obtaining certifications through governing agencies, which is also analyzed.

This familiar technology has drastically advanced over the last 2 years, and it is on the verge of disrupting the aerospace supply chain. When companies start to find ways to produce parts on-demand through additive manufacturing, supply chains can be diminished to the push of a button, which will ultimately reduce aircraft on-ground time across the board.
