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

Additive Manufacturing and Lightweight Materials for Aerospace and Defense: Part I
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 I of the "Additive Manufacturing and Lightweight Materials for Aerospace and Defense" webinar series includes:
 
  • Insight into technology adoption drivers and restraints
  • An overview of the key additive manufacturing for lightweighting technologies and materials
  • Insight into the additive manufacturing strategies developed by OEMs
 
Part 2, presented by Dr Richard Collins, will be broadcast on 26th July. Click here to register your place.
