3 Reasons Why Metal Sintering Is Good For Aerospace Applications

SpeedDirect metal laser sintering allows for functional end use parts to be manufactured in less than a day because no special tooling is required. This subsequently reduces the cost for manufacturing custom metal parts.

Complexity – Direct metal laser sintering makes it possible to manufacture parts that are extremely difficult to produce using traditional manufacturing. In most cases, parts made for aerospace applications may require more than one function. An example could be an engine component that may have internal geometries for passing fluids.

Materials – Components can be made out of same material as production parts. Most common examples include aluminum alloy, stainless steel alloy, titanium alloy, nickel alloy and cobalt chrome. These materials are capable of producing light weight metal parts and are also capable of withstanding high temperature fluctuations making them ideal for aerospace applications.
