3D Printing In Aerospace Field

At present, as an important technology in the aerospace field, 3D printing is promoting the innovation of production process and production efficiency of aircraft model manufacturing. At the same time, 3D Printing technology is also changing the entire aerospace equipment supply chain to a certain extent. As a brand-new manufacturing technology, metal 3D printing technology has outstanding application advantages in the aerospace field and obvious service benefits. Mainly reflected in the following aspects:

  • 1. Shorten the development cycle of new aerospace equipment
  • 2. Improve the utilization rate of materials, save expensive strategic materials, and reduce manufacturing costs
  • 3. Optimize the structure of parts, reduce weight, reduce stress concentration, and increase service life
  • 4. Repair forming of parts
  • 5. Cooperate with traditional manufacturing technology and complement each other

Traditional manufacturing technology is suitable for mass production of shaped products, while 3D printing technology is more suitable for the manufacture of personalized or refined structural products. Combining 3D printing technology with traditional manufacturing technology, taking advantage of each, give full play to their own advantages, and make manufacturing technology more powerful.

As the primary application field of metal 3D printing technology, aerospace has obvious technical advantages. However, in actual production, metal 3D printing also has its corresponding shortcomings. There are still many problems to be solved in its technical application. For example, 3D printing cannot adapt to mass production, cannot meet high-precision requirements, and cannot achieve high-efficiency manufacturing. . Moreover, a key factor restricting the development of 3D printing aerospace parts service is its high equipment cost, and most civilian fields cannot afford such high equipment manufacturing costs. However, with the continuous development of material technology, computer technology and laser technology, manufacturing costs will continue to decrease. By then, 3D printing will shine in the manufacturing field.

What Aerospace Parts Can Be 3D Printed?

From the current application point of view, 3D printing technology has two main applications in the aerospace field: one is the direct and rapid manufacturing of complex components; the other is the rapid repair of components.

  •  – Compared with traditional manufacturing methods, 3D printing has many advantages in aerospace equipment manufacturing.
  •  – The shape and internal structure of key parts of aerospace equipment are usually complex, and traditional manufacturing processes such as casting and forging are difficult to accurately process, while the processing process of 3D printing is not limited by the complexity of the parts;
  •  – Aerospace equipment has very strict requirements on the performance and composition of materials. 3D printing technology can easily process difficult-to-process materials such as high-melting and high-hardness superalloys and titanium alloys, and the materials are relatively fully utilized in the 3D printing process. , Can significantly reduce manufacturing costs;
  •  – The near parts after 3D printing are very close to the requirements of the finished product, and there is no or only a small amount of subsequent processing, which can effectively shorten the production cycle of parts and components, and meet the rapid response requirements of aerospace products.

In the aerospace field, the cost of major equipment is expensive. If parts are damaged or parts are out of size during use, it will cause great economic losses. At this time, it is a good choice to use 3D printing technology to repair the damaged parts of the parts, so that the overall equipment can be put into use quickly.

3D Printing For Aerospace Parts

Metal 3D Printing For Aerospace Parts

Aluminum, titanium, Hastelloy and Inconel superalloys are widely accepted by aircraft manufacturers, but when parts are made by 3D printing, they are expected to be subject to stricter scrutiny, especially when new alloys may be used. All of these Extensive and rigorous testing is required before flight use.

With the rapid development of modern aircraft manufacturing, whether working on a commercial, military or space-related project, Metal 3d printing technology has become one of the key technologies for aerospace manufacturing. The advancement of aerospace 3d printing processing technology has changed the concept of aircraft design, and the design of aerospace parts has become more integrated and complicated. Aerospace parts have their unique characteristics, such as thin walls, easy deformation, complex curved surfaces, and difficult to process materials. With the continuous advancement of technology, for some 3d printing manufacturers with rich experience and advanced equipment, such as PTJ, complete 3d printing of large aircraft components with high efficiency and low cost is no longer a difficult task.

The Application Of 3D Printing Aerospace Parts

Aerospace has always been one of the important pillar industries in the field of national defense, and a symbol of the strength of a country’s comprehensive scientific and technological strength. As the machining difficulty of aerospace parts such as engine discs, shaft parts, turbine casings, landing gears, etc. continues to increase, various new materials, new structures, and new technologies are emerging in an endless stream, and the requirements for processing technology and craftsmanship continue to increase. And the emergence of 3D printing has made the aerospace industry even more powerful and accelerated the development of the industry.
