Aerospace & Defense
Over the last decade, aerospace and defense innovators have pushed 3D printing beyond the realm of prototyping into advanced tooling and production applications. Stratasys has partnered with industry leaders to develop materials and processes that are making 3D printed parts commonplace on aircraft and spacecraft -- and cementing the technology as an engineering mainstay.
Featured Case Studies
Kelly Manufacturing - EN FDM Case Study
Achieving tight tolerances of 0.003 in. (0.0762 mm) FDM provides substantially better dimensional accuracy than the urethane casting process, and it eliminates the need for hand sanding.
Piper Aircraft Top Flight - EN FDM Case Study
Top Flight - Piper is using hydroforming to produce hundreds of aluminum structural components of the aircraft such as the inner frame, gussets, brackets, skins, etc. In the past, the company machined aluminum form tools for use in hydroforming machines.
