Additive Manufacturing and Lightweight Materials for Aerospace and Defense: Part 2

Additive Manufacturing and Lightweight Materials for Aerospace and Defense: Part 2
The aerospace and defense sector is key to assess when it comes to the adoption of any emerging technology. The main players have specific material requirements and big budgets to address their needs. One of the key demands is lightweighting. Aerospace has the highest carbon footprint per tonne-km over any other mode of transportation and regulatory demands and economic advantages mean that saving any weight is a constant target. This webinar series shares some of the research carried out for the new IDTechEx report, Additive Manufacturing and Lightweight Materials for Aerospace and Defense, covering the latest trends and developments in additive manufacturing for lightweighting in aerospace and defense.
 
Part 1 of the "Additive Manufacturing and Lightweight Materials for Aerospace and Defense" webinar series looked at the key technologies and OEM strategies for Additive manufacturing. Part 1 is available on demand until 24th August.
 
Part 2 will include:
  • Analysis of lightweight materials in the aerospace and defense sector over the next 10-year period and beyond.
  • Market insights into the key trends and players for composites and lightweight metals (aluminium, titanium, and magnesium).
  • Key emerging lightweight materials.
