Lightweight construction, functional enhancements and the joining of multiple components give voxeljet customers in the aviation industry a clear competitive advantage. In addition to optimized, resource-conserving production, 3D printing enables better-performing components to be implemented quickly and easily. Additively manufactured cast components have a stable shape and are yet low-weight, which cuts fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Combined with simulation and topology optimization, in particular, 3D printing has proven to be an extremely powerful tool for manufacturing more functional and lighter-weight components. The use of 3D printing for complex additive designs also helps prolong component life. Complex assemblies (gearboxes and drive housings, impellers and pumps), which cannot currently be reproduced with other additive direct-metal methods due to dimensional limitations, can be produced cost-efficiently through cast parts.
The aerospace sector is one of the most innovative industrial fields. Development departments put in much effort to push forth new inventions. Therefore we regard it as a matter of course keeping an extensive confidentiality policy in relation to our clients’ projects.This is why we can only exemplarily provide case studies for the aviation section. We hope for your understanding.
