Stratasys 3D Production systems print functional, end-use aerospace and defense parts. Reducing aerospace part number and weight while improving overall efficiency unattainable through traditional manufacturing methods.
Production expertise is critical to many of our aerospace customers. Cimetrix has an expert aerospace manufacturing engineering team with critical technical knowledge. Our industry knowledge and our abilities to support high requirement applications is what brings aerospace companies to Cimetrix. Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM) with additive manufacturing allows for the creation of rigid, lightweight aerospace parts, leveraging advanced materials such as Ultem 9085, not achievable with other manufacturing methods. Our customers, such as L3, Bombardier, Boeing and Standard Aero are but a few partners benefiting from these advancement’s in additive technologies and materials. Like others in the aerospace industry, they are experiencing performance improvements with superior lightweight part design from integrated structures and component consolidation.
By reducing weight, part count, design constraints and supply-chain risk, additive manufacturing is creating new production efficiencies for the aerospace industry. The proof was on display at the 2015 Paris Air Show, where Stratasys highlighted the certified materials and processes that produced components for the new Airbus A350 XWB.
