Rapid Innovation in Aerospace with Additive Manufacturing: From Idea to Flight-Ready in 13 Months

Additive manufacturing (AM) is a powerful enabler of rapid innovation, and the urban air mobility sector has been quick to take notice. LIFT Aircraft, a customer of Materialise, went from idea to flying aircraft within 13 months, an achievement that’s unthinkable with conventional product development and manufacturing. Their HEXA eVTOL aircraft features nine applications of 3D printing, with multiple parts in each application. In this presentation, Dorina Kovacs from Materialise is joined by Balazs Kerulo, Chief Engineer of LIFT Aircraft, to explore how LIFT is using the three main drivers of AM - design, speed, and flexibility - with a particular focus on the development of a critical component 3D-printed in titanium.

Want to know more on smarter sourcing with AM?

Low-criticality, plastic parts can represent a disproportionate burden in your supply chain when they come with high MOQs and stock risk. Here, AM has a clear commercial benefit to offer: quick, on-demand production of short series, eliminating overstock and warehousing costs.
