VELO3D Selected for its 3D-Printed Aftermarket Part Solutions for Gas Turbines in Aviation and Energy

Additive manufacturing will help keep aging engines operational with greater flexibility and shorter delivery times than traditional MRO supply chains

VELO3D is pleased to announce that Chromalloy, a manufacturing and repair solutions provider for gas turbine engine manufacturers and operators worldwide, recently selected the VELO3D Sapphire® system as their additive manufacturing (AM) solution to significantly impact the economics of future Maintenance, Repair & Operations (MRO) projects in Chromalloy’s aviation and energy markets.

Stratasys Awarded Airbus Contract Extension

Stratasys announced it has been awarded a contract extension for production of 3D printed polymer cabin interior components. While the initial contract with Stratasys was focused on production parts for the A350, this contract extension expands the range of parts printed for Airbus to include replacement and spare parts for maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) as well as parts for aircraft platforms (such as A300, A330, A340 and A320) in addition to the A350. Stratasys is proud to continue to build on our long term relationship with Airbus as a technology, material, and part supplier.

Cost reduction in aerospace through additive manufacturing

Spacecrafts are developed, tested and fully assembled on Earth and transported in one piece by a launch vehicle to their respective places of operation. Each component must be able to withstand the extreme conditions during the launch phase. In most cases, in addition to complex test procedures, this leads to an oversized structure of the spacecraft components, because in orbit they experience only a fraction of the stresses they must endure during rocket launch.

Boom Supersonic Readies for Flight with Metal Additive Manufacturing on Board

Challenging titanium parts for XB-1 demonstrator aircraft successfully 3D printed on VELO3D’s Sapphire system

The unveiling of Boom Supersonic’s XB-1 supersonic demonstrator aircraft last fall at the company’s Denver hangar has brought the dream of a return to supersonic air travel closer to reality. While XB-1, as well as the company’s future Overture supersonic airliner, echo the shape of the earlier Concorde, XB-1 presented its creators with an opportunity to explore more advanced designs and manufacturing technologies than were available to Concorde engineers.

TÜV SÜD: Added value for the aviation industry

At the 10th Aviation Forum, TÜV SÜD will present comprehensive services in the fields of additive manufacturing, certification, environmental testing and non-destructive testing. In addition, additive manufacturing expert Gregor Reischle will be represented in the Tech Talks of the conference programme with his presentation "Digital part approval of 3D printed components enabled by advanced manufacturing solutions". Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the international trade fair for the aviation industry will take place exclusively online from 17th to 18th November.

ESA Extended: Reducing Plastic Consumption in Space With Lunar Powder

Since becoming a part of the European Astronaut Centre’s lab equipment in February 2017, the Composer 450 has been instrumental in their prototyping processes. ESA researchers have successfully used the extruder to develop custom quantities of PLA-based filament for research and development iterations. The 3devo set-up gives Spaceship EAC the ability to create 3D printing filament in-house. Also, reducing Spaceship EAC’s dependence on the expertise and availability of third--party filament suppliers.
