What's in the Report

COMMERCIAL & MILITARY

Taylor-Deal Automation uses additive manufacturing with materials like ULTEM® 9085, which meets FAA flame regulations.

LOWER COST & WEIGHT, SAFELY

Innovative aerospace manufacturers want to drive down cost and weight, improve economy and design aesthetics while adhering to stringent FAA regulatory and compliance standards.

JIGS & FIXTURES

Many manufacturing tools can be created faster and less expensively than with traditional methods. Molds, templates, jigs and fixtures, surrogates can all be ready for use in hours, not weeks.

UNMANNED AERIAL SYSTEMS (UAS)

Unmanned systems are seeing a rise in "smart parts" which are hybrid parts that include 3D printed structures and 3D printed electronics.
