Airplanes and aerospace vehicles require intricately designed and manufactured parts for proper flight. Over the years, additive manufacturing has proven itself to be a useful and trustworthy process for creating a wide range of aerospace parts.
Over the past decade, many manufacturers have begun turning to inexpensive additive manufacturing processes to create the parts they need for their aerospace or military vehicles. These processes not only saved companies money on customer tooling but also provided inexpensive manufacture of parts that are often even stronger than those produced by traditional means.
The military has long relied on traditional means of manufacture for a wide range of weapons and aerospace vehicles, but AM has also proved itself useful in the field. Military-grade products can easily be created through additive manufacturing, providing servicemen and servicewomen with the mission-critical systems they need without sacrificing quality or longevity.
