Current updates with 3D PRINTING in Aerospace & Defence

Date: 30/09/2017
Venue: Hyatt Bangalore, MG Road

The Aerospace & Defence industry is a main market for additive manufacturing. This is not only because this sector has a long history of an early adopter of latest technology inventions, but also because it needs these inventions. Environmental performance restrictions, competitive market conditions and high manufacturing cost are just some of the challenges that aerospace & defence faces today. And this is exactly where the benefits of additive manufacturing come to the fore: shorter production time, no required additional tooling, material savings and cost-efficiency are just some of the good reasons why aerospace companies should integrate 3D Printing in their production strategies.

DMLS (direct metal laser sintering), also called selective laser melting or selective laser sintering is the mostly used 3D printing technique for production of aerospace components.

Trinity Media & Marketing Solutions recognizes the potential of 3D Printing in Aerospace & Defence and has asserted it with 3 maturity criteria for the technology to be successful for the sector. Process Quality, Process Speed, Feed Stock cost is imperative for companies to see and opportunity to invest in 3D printing for the Aerospace & Defence sector.

And the opportunity is to invite experts from the technology to share their knowledge on platform 3D PRINTING WORLD – THINK BOARD.

Here are some benefits of metal 3D printing for the aerospace industry which can be summarized as follow:

Complex designs -
Additive manufacturing offers unbelievable flexibility in terms of geometry and it enables shapes not previously possible to be manufactured. This creates more space for innovation and exploration of new designs.

Weight reduction -
Weight reduction is one of the biggest issues in aerospace manufacturing. Lighter aircraft components have double impact on the industry. On the one hand less weight leads to lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions and on the other hand means less cost and better airfares.

Improved strength and durability -
The mechanical properties of metal powders as Inconel 718 and titanium Ti64l4V lead to improved strength and exceptional resistance in high temperatures and corrosive conditions, encountered in aircraft engines.

Major Saving -
3D printed parts create less waste compare to traditionally manufactured ones which leads to environmentally friendly and energy efficient vehicles. The excellent mechanical properties of Inconel 718 and Titanium Ti6Al4V have led to their diverse use in the aerospace additive manufacturing.

Topics of interest in the 3D Printing World – Think Board Aerospace & Defence .

  • 3D Printing

The event will be deliberated on key points with Questions to be answered –
  • How is the Aerospace & Defence industry utilizing 3-D printing technology?
  • What advantages does the technology provide to Manufacturing companies?
  • What is it for new aspirants and SME companies supporting Make In India?
  • Mass production with 3D printing Are we seeing an opportunity to reach that stage. What are the challenges?
  • Digital Manufacturing Is it a cause for concern or a plus for companies Supply Chain overhead cost reduction and inventory control to keep a proper check to avoid wastage.
  • How viable and cost effective is it? Efficiency and reliability on a long run, will it support the initial cost?
  • Will the 3 D printing takeover the ongoing methods of manufacturing in the Aerospace?
  • Technology Maturity Criteria: Process Quality, Process Speed, Feed Stock cost very imperative for companies to invest in the Aerospace & Defence sector. Are we ready?
