3D Printing for Aerospace
Your additive manufacturing partner across the entire aerospace supply chain
Short lead times, affordable small series, a different way of making flight-ready parts: add additive to your mix of aerospace manufacturing technologies.
From the industry’s leading OEMs to eVTOL start-ups, from MROs to tier one and two suppliers, Materialise engages with the full span of the aerospace supply chain. As a POA, we offer additive manufacturing of flying parts — as well as innovation and adoption support for every stage of your journey.
Certified and certifying
Whether you’re an aircraft manufacturer, supplier, or MRO, we have the accreditations you need to let us make flight-ready parts for you. In addition to existing certified processes, we can help you with the development and qualification of new 3D printing applications and materials.
Aerospace applications of AM
From aesthetic cabin interior parts to functional components, a vast range of aircraft parts can be reliably and economically 3D printed today.
Customization, short series runs, and the potential for further lightweighting of components, means that additive manufacturing can play a key role in manufacturing the aircraft of the future —safely, efficiently, flexibly.
“The feedback that comes back from Materialise is very constructive and has really helped us refine designs.”
- Balazs Kerulo, Chief Engineer, LIFT Aircraft
