Key stakeholders to discuss the opportunities in additive parts for aerospace and the hurdles that need to be addressed in order for direct part production to take flight in the aerospace industry.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2014
Infocast, the leading business intelligence and networking events producer in the aerospace industry, has announced the second Additive Aerospace Summit, scheduled for November 3-6, 2014 and will take place in Los Angeles, CA, the global hub of aerospace innovation. To date, Infocast’s in-depth four-day event remains the only dedicated summit in the industry to focus on additive manufacturing for aerospace.
The emerging additive aerospace industry has garnered an impressive response from major players across the value chain, and direct part production in metals and other advanced materials has taken aerospace to a whole new level. New parts are created weekly: turbine, injector, fuel vessel, wing span and more. OEMs, MRO players and new startups have developed their interest of additive parts for a variety of different uses, whether it be for ultimate use in passenger or cargo planes, fighter jets, rockets, helicopters, UAVs or satellites. However, there is a rigorous set of standards and certifications that these parts must meet before actual part production for aerospace markets can take place.
Building off of the great success of last year’s Additive Aerospace Summit, Infocast has organized the second Additive Aerospace Summit to provide a platform for key stakeholders to discuss the opportunities in additive parts for aerospace and the hurdles that need to be addressed in order for direct part production to take flight in the aerospace industry. Decision-makers who are now using, planning to use, or driving the adoption of metal will be on-hand from companies such as Airbus, Lockheed Martin, Sikorsky Aircraft, The Boeing Company, NASA, Pratt & Whitney, Sciaky Inc., GKN Aerospace, Orbital Sciences, Raytheon Company, ASTM F42, Sintef Raufoss Manufacturing AS and others.
Industry experts and stakeholders will address: the use of additive parts in the aerospace industry, materials and process qualification, the extent of adoption and range of applications underway and planned, the threat to established manufacturing platforms and how to stay competitive, and the latest from end users on lessons learned, challenges and needs.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with top level end users, officials, R&D directors, additive program managers, and thought leaders at the only dedicated additive for aerospace summit to date and explore the opportunities in the evolving additive for aerospace era.
