Aerospace Parts & Components
Production expertise is critical to many of our aerospace customers.Solid Concepts is AS9100 certified and has an expert aerospace manufacturing engineering team with critical technical knowledge. Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM) with additive manufacturing allows for the creation of rigid, lightweight aerospace parts not achievable with other manufacturing methods.
Due to the advancements of these technologies and materials, the aerospace industry is experiencing performance improvements with superior lightweight part design from integrated structures and component consolidation.
Ideal Aerospace Technologies
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
SLS is an additive manufacturing method that utilizes powdered Nylon 11, Nylon 12, and PEEK materials, including some that are certified to FAR 25.853 and 29.853 standards for flame, smoke, and toxicity. Parts produced are lightweight and strong. SLS production parts are being used for a variety of end-use aerospace applications.Read more about SLS
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
FDM is an additive manufacturing process that uses production thermoplastic materials to produce fully functional parts. Materials offered include ABS, PC, and ULTEM® 9085. ULTEM 9085 is certified to UL-94V0, FAR 25.853, and FAR 29.853 standards and meets OSU radiant panel peak heat release and total heat release. Read more about FDM
QuantumCast Cast Urethanes
QuantumCast utilizes a variety of Advanced Formula Polymer materials along with soft silicone tools to produce short runs of production parts. QuantumCast is ideal for situations when the quantity does not justify the cost of hard tooling or when the design is subject to change. Read more about Cast Urethane
