Additive Manufacturing Accelerates Aerospace Design Validation and Tool Production

French aircraft design and manufacturing group, Latécoère, is deploying Stratasys FDM additive manufacturing throughout its design and production process to accelerate design validation and tool production.

Latécoère–which services aerospace giants including AirbusBombardier and Dassault–is using a Stratasys Fortus 450mc Production 3D Printer for both rapid prototyping and production tooling. According to Simon Rieu, composite and additive manufacturing manager at Latécoère’s R&D and Innovation Center: “Additive manufacturing has integrated seamlessly into our design and production process, and has seen us enjoy improved lead-times, reduced costs and enhanced operational efficiency.”
