The aerospace industry is highly dependent on small, precise parts being produced in low volumes. Manufacturing these parts is predictably difficult, which helps to explain why the industry is dominated by a few major players. Startups simply didn’t have the capital or resources to build parts in-house — not before metal additive manufacturing (AM) arrived. What is Metal AM? Additive manufacturing (also known as 3D printing or AM) typically uses plastics and polymers to print components and tools. Now, objects…

You only need to look at an airplane seat belt buckle for proof that additive manufacturing (AM), or 3D printing, is set to revolutionize the aerospace and defense (A&D) industry. Switching from a conventional buckle to a 3D-printed buckle can cut 55% off the weight, or 160 pounds total, from an Airbus 380. Over the lifetime of the plane, this lighter buckle can save 872,000 gallons of fuel — roughly $2.3 million in costs. Market analysts expect A&D investment in…
