From ideation to production, we offer more effective, tailored and economical solutions beyond the scope of traditional manufacturing. Our additive manufacturing team can help you develop a niche component, prototype or proof-of-concept.
We are enabling the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF)’s missions with our AM solutions. We support the aircraft’s aeromedical evacuation capability by designing and printing custom-made mounts for medical equipment on-board the RSAF’s A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport, a next-generation tanker aircraft capable of conducting Air-to-Air Refuelling and airlift roles simultaneously.
In the ACCESS lavatory for persons with reduced mobility, 11 parts are made from AM including some of the largest parts that can be achieved through the process. From digital design to physical reality, the full set of parts took the team just over 20 days to fabricate. For each print job, our engineers analysed the toolpaths and airflow in the build chamber to ensure maximum part quality and print stability. As a testament to our growth and advancement in AM know-how, the Advanced Manufacturing Design Centre (AMDC) provides aviation-qualified processes and materials to help customers turn concepts into reality on time and on demand.
With our Digital Systems business, we worked on a proof-of-concept project involving a small, intricate device around 2cm wide. Printed in 316L stainless steel, the device had fine features and internal channels that would have been impossible to achieve with traditional manufacturing. At its thinnest, the device is only 0.3mm thick – thinner than the average fingernail.
To ensure print success, our engineers at AMDC made small but critical design tweaks and formulated printing strategies to overcome manufacturing issues unique to the part's production.
