Additive Manufacturing in the Aerospace Industry

Article by Rod Mackay updated January 8, 2016


The aerospace industry is leading the way for adoption of 3D printing technologies for manufacturing applications. With widespread adoption of additive manufacturing for jigs, fixtures, and tooling applications on the shop floor, as well as the announcements of trailblazing companies like United Launch Alliance and Airbus qualifying additive manufactured high performance thermoplastic parts for flight applications, and the printed jet UAV demonstrated in 2015, the future of the industry is starting to take shape.

Why watch the webinar

During the webinar you will learn about:

  • The recent steps forward in manufacturing for the aerospace industry,
  • Review the key applications in which the technology is in use from assembly fixtures to flight parts,
  • Where additive manufacturing for aerospace is headed and how Stratasys are leading the way.
