Products designed for aerospace have to meet high standards. 3D printing has enabled both aerospace and defense companies to be able to create complex components, in which most cases were previously impossible with traditional techniques. Aerospace parts must be made out of high-tech materials that meet industry requirements that adhere to stringent weight constraints, and perform in the harsh environments of high-altitude or space.
rp+m has extensive experience in additive manufacturing parts for airplanes, helicopters, jet engines, air ducts, hydroform tooling and more! In fact, rp+m was the first additive manufacturing (AM) site to be qualified with NCAMP audited process controls for printing ULTEM™9085 Certified Grade. Read the press release herefor details on how to employ this unique process control technology into printed parts to significantly reduce variability.
rp+m has the technology in-house to fabricate complex defense
components in both plastic and metal materials, including:
