Reach for the stars

The aerospace industry continues to blast through the stratosphere where innovation is concerned. Disruptive new technologies are driving extraordinary efficiencies in the production of lightweight, environmentally sound, complex parts.

As an aeronautical design engineer you’ll be looking for a product development partner who is prepared to invest in those technologies and deliver your prototype parts in line with those efficiencies without compromise. One who’ll help you reach new heights.

Our teams of highly skilled engineers will produce precision parts, who produce precision prototypes, tooling and mould modifications of exceptional quality. We understand the industry imperatives of adhering to customer specifications, and offer a contract managed end-to-end service, ensuring quality standards from materials to tolerances.

Additive Manufacturing advantages for Aerospace

Tool free solutions for prototyping and some production parts with complex geometries

Additive manufacturing offers almost unrivalled design freedom for aerospace engineers. It shortens design time and increases efficiencies across the supply chain. Lightweight components with complex geometries and tight tolerances can be produced quickly and cost effectively.

Icon_Concept Visualisation

Design verification

Accelerate your product design phase for small component parts. AM allows you to customise endlessly and validate your parts before moving to engineering and manufacturing.

Production

Pre-production

Creating surrogate parts to check form and fit, particularly for applications requiring high temperatures and high levels of strength and durability. AM enables the engineer to design parts with variable wall thicknesses to increase strength to weight ratios.

Applications

Applications

Aesthetic prototypes such as consoles, lenses, grips, jigs and fixtures, tooling, panels, and low end production runs for interior build-outs. Prototyping for heat resistant functional parts; ducting and bellows; complex interlocking parts in low volumes.
