  • Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace

    The Aerospace Technology Institute's latest INSIGHT paper looks at the opportunities and challenges associated with the implementation of additive manufacturing technologies and how the benefits can be recognised across the aerospace structures, systems and propulsion communities. The paper gives an aerospace specific focus which builds on Additive Manufacturing UK’s 2017 multi-sectorial national strategy paper “Leading Additive Manufacturing in the UK”. Recommendations are provided for the civil aerospace sector to develop and exploit opportunities for a highly disruptive technology that has the potential to transform future aircraft platforms. Metal powder bed fusion has been up to now, the primary focus of the aerospace industry but other technologies such as direct energy deposition are gaining in their significance in the UK sector. This is reflected in this INSIGHT paper where six key topics have been addressed to accelerate Additive Manufacturing (AM) within the UK aerospace sector.

  • Large Scale Additive manufacture of Engineering Components using WAAM

    Production of metre scale engineering metallic structural parts by Wire + Arc Additive Manufacture (WAAM) is currently of great interest to industry in many sectors. This is due to the potential for significant cost and lead time savings compared to current manufacturing processes. WAAM technology will be reviewed and examples shown of typical structures that have been produced to date. The significant business benefit of utilising WAAM will be highlighted and examples of systems and their capabilities will be highlighted.

  • Incremental Sheet Forming Process

    ISF is an incremental sheet forming process suited to low volume and one-off manufacture. ISF utilises a very small tool contact area to achieve controlled deformation with low applied loads and very high accuracy. The Tooling costs and lead times are a fraction of what is currently used in traditional sheet forming operations. The ISF process uses a gantry-based tool mounting or robot mounted tools to increase the working envelope and facilitate the simultaneous operation of multiple tools.
