The benefits of Additive Manufacturing (AM) are endless. The Aerospace industry was one of the first adopters of AM because of its ability to produce lightweight structures that traditional manufacturing is not able to. Since then, it has transcended and played an integral role in MRO, improving airframe designs and much more.
Understanding the benefits of AM can help organizations unlock the full potential of their capabilities and push the boundaries of what is currently conceived. This presentation seeks to give a 50,000 ft overview of the AM industry, the various technologies and capabilities that are out there as well as an end-to-end framework of mass producing quality parts for the Aerospace industry.
Developing strategies in implementing AM within organizations is crucial to fully capturing benefits from Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) for various industrial applications to improve efficiency and optimize supply chain challenges. Organizations stand to save on overall cost and lead time with AM implementation.
The sky is no longer the limit.
