Aerospace industry opens opportunities for 3D printing in aviation industries

Reportlinker has released finding that identify and quantify opportunities for 3D printing (3DP) in the commercial and general aviation industries, the company said.

The report covers jetliners, helicopters, and smaller civilian aircraft and analyzes 3DP´s influence on aerospace manufacturing. The company said the commercial aerospace industry is close to manufacturing that utilizes metal and polymer 3DP technologies to produce aircraft engine components and a variety of structural and cabin components.

The number of projects in pre-production and flight testing for aircraft engine manufacturing has increased. Pratt & Whitney, MTU, Airbus, and others are all integrating final parts into aircraft in volumes that range from hundreds, to thousands.
