Industry Perspectives: Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace, Defence & Space
Ahead of the Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace, Defence & Space summit in March 2016, Defence IQ interviewed three leading companies in the sector to understand more about the market from an industry perspective. In this feature Stratasys, Materialise and Laser Lines discuss the challenges and opportunities additive manufacturing (AM) presents in the aerospace, defence and space (ADS) sector. They give their exclusive insight on how the market is evolving and identify the key trends as AM methods grow from small research projects into large scale production runs.
Each company offered their opinion on six questions, including the benefits of AM for ADS and why these are not necessarily applicable across all sectors, insight on how they plan to expand in the ADS market, and where future investment lies.
