Oerlikon AM and MT Aerospace Partner to Advance Additive Manufacturing Solutions for Aerospace

Wednesday, June 19, 2019
Oerlikon AM and MT Aerospace have announced their partnership to accelerate the use of additive parts in the aerospace and defense industries through end-to-end customer solutions. With Germany-based MT Aerospace’s heritage in designing highly stressed and lightweight metal structures and Switzerland-based Oerlikon’s materials, the partnership offers aerospace customers a notable advantage by realizing synergies between construction/design, manufacturing and part inspection and qualification.

Rolls-Royce Selects SLM Printer

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

Rolls-Royce has selected an SLM 500 quad-laser metal 3D printer from SLM Solutions for the manufacture of additive manufactured aerospace components. With four lasers enabling build rates up to 171 cm3, the printer meets demand for high-volume processes while offering automated, closed-loop material supply, recovery and sieving to minimize operator handling of metal powder.

While speed and safety are common requirements, aerospace particular challenging because of the rigorous certification process that requires a reliable, high standard of part quality. 

GE Considers AM for Wind Turbines

Monday, June 17, 2019
While GE Additive continues to innovate in the medical and aerospace segments, it may soon add renewable energy to its accomplishments, according to Danielle Merfield, vice president and chief technology officer for GE Renewable Energy

While at the American Wind Energy Association Windpower Conference in late May, Merfield told Windpower Monthly that GE is looking at how to apply additive manufacturing to wind-turbine components, large and small, and describing such efforts as having the potential to “radically change the nature of what we do.”

Stay tuned.
