The Application and Advantages of 3D Printing in Aerospace
The application of 3D printing technology in the aerospace field can not only shorten the research and development cycle of new aerospace equipment, improve the utilization rate of materials, and reduce manufacturing costs. At the same time, it is more capable of repairing and forming parts, which greatly enhances its service life and makes the manufacturing of aerospace equipment more high-end and efficient!

As the bright pearl in the crown of the industrial world, the aerospace manufacturing field integrates all the high-precision technologies of a country, and is the back-up guarantee field for the implementation of the national strategic plan and the demonstration of the political situation. Metal 3D technology as a new manufacturing technology, its application in the aerospace field has outstanding advantages and obvious service benefits. It is mainly reflected in the following aspects:
(1) shorten the research and development cycle of new aerospace equipment.
(2) Improve the utilisation rate of materials, save expensive strategic materials and reduce manufacturing costs.
(3) Optimise the structure of parts, reduce weight, reduce stress concentration and increase service life.
(4) Repair and forming of parts.
(5) Compatibility with traditional manufacturing technology, interoperability and complementarity.
Aerospace as the primary application of 3D printing technology, its technical advantages are obvious, but this does not mean that metal 3D printing is omnipotent, in the actual production, the application of its technology there are still many urgent problems to be resolved. For example, the current 3D printing can not adapt to mass production, to meet the demand for high precision, can not achieve high efficiency manufacturing. Moreover, one of the key factors restricting the development of 3D printing is the high cost of its equipment, most of the civilian sector can not afford such high equipment manufacturing costs. But with the materials technology, computer technology and laser technology continues to develop, manufacturing costs will continue to reduce to meet the manufacturing industry on the cost of production capacity, then, 3D printing will bloom in the field of manufacturing belongs to its light.
