Because metal additive manufacturing process parameters are developed based on materials independent of geometries, limitations in those parameters can sometimes cause costly delays, particularly in aerospace applications. Through an experience addressing challenges such as residual stresses, subsurface porosity and high fatigue requirements with an aerospace titanium manifold, Magnitude Innovations Inc. has created an approach that it says can be transferred to other aerospace applications.

Matt Tusz, director and co-founder of Magnitude Innovations Inc., is sharing his company’s success story at the 2018 Additive Manufacturing Conference taking place September 11 to 12 in Chicago. He will talk about his company’s methodology for facing the challenges in printing large geometries for specific aerospace applications. Find out more on Tuesday, September 11 at 12:00 p.m.

  • The Aircraft Imperative

    Reduce cost, reduce weight—to the extent that additive manufacturing can do these things, it represents a promising method for making aircraft parts. While important constraints currently prevent additive manufacturing from seeing more widespread use in aircraft production, these constraints might not be what you think. Here is a look at additive manufacturing within Boeing.

  • AM Design May (Finally) Launch the Aerospike Engine

    A team of engineers turns to additive design to create—and successfully test—“the holy grail of the spaceship movement.”

  • UAV Takes Flight with 80 Percent 3D-Printed Parts

    A collaborative project leveraged FDM and other additive technologies to design and build an unmanned aerial vehicle.
