Use Case: Harris Corp. 3D Prints RF Amplifiers
Harris Corporation and Nano Dimension worked together to explore the potential use of 3D printing for radio frequency (RF) circuits. The resulting data showed similar RF performance between 3D printed and the baseline amplifiers, demonstrating the viability of 3D printing technology to produce a functional RF circuit.
How Electronics for 3D-Printed Rocket Engine Parts Are Transforming Aerospace
3D printing of large, complex objects like automobiles and rockets was once thought to border on the realm of science fiction. Today, serious companies are producing 3D-printed rocket engine parts and finished engines with lower weight and cost compared to traditionally manufactured engines. 3D printing capabilities now span beyond fabricating mechanical parts for rocket engines […]
Explaining the Shift to Digital Manufacturing in Aerospace
As many industries prepare to adapt to Industry 4.0, upgrades to current manufacturing processes will be accompanied by greater digitization. Aerospace and defense is one area where greater digitization and the move to full-scale digital manufacturing addresses many of the industry’s acute pain points.
4 Cost Benefits of Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace Applications
With Industry 4.0 in full swing, additive manufacturing is becoming more popular and disruptive in a number of industries, and aerospace is no exception. Compared to other industries, aerospace is one area that focuses on low-volume production of systems that incorporate complex mechanical and electronic components.
