AEROSPACE >

Industry Overview

The aerospace sector in recent years has been experiencing considerable transformations based on the growing role played by both the introduction of new digital technologies and the new way of organizing the means of production.

As a consequence of this context, companies are subject to growing competition, being crucial to understanding their current situation, in order to plan their growth strategy and allow them to position themselves advantageously in the market.

Without a doubt, the aerospace sector is destined for the implementation of additive manufacturing technologies. The relatively short series of manufacturing in commercial aircraft, even smaller in military aircraft and unmanned systems, and the great variety of unique components in the space sector, makes the technology present great competitive advantages in cost and functionality.

Industry Overview

The aerospace sector pursues 3 main objectives for the implementation of the Technology:

Reduction of manufacturing costs
_________________

The search for manufacturing processes that provide equal benefits at a lower cost is a constant activity in any industrial sector.

Weight reduction

One of the determining factors for the use of additive manufacturing lies in the possibility of introducing freer designs and thus allowing components and structures to be lightened.

Shortening of delivery time

One of the determining factors for the use of additive manufacturing lies in the possibility of introducing freer designs and thus allowing components and structures to be lightened.

SOLUTION (Proposed by meltio)

There are numerous applications already developed for the space sector, and others in the process of being implemented for the aeronautical sector.

But it is now with the advancement of additive manufacturing technologies that a new requirement appears.
The possibilities of MELTIO’s manufacturing technology, makes its hybrid additive manufacturing technology become a very attractive technology for a definitive implementation. Undoubtedly, the versatility of a technology that can be used both in closed chamber and robotic systems and with a wide range of materials at very attractive prices, makes one wonder if MELTIO will be the definitive solution to break down barriers in the implementation of additive manufacturing, and mainly in the aeronautical sector, where reducing the weight of highly optimized products in design is no longer a determining factor compared to the integral manufacturing cost.
