Additive manufacturing is seeing increasing acceptance for the production of aerospace parts. As a broader array of metal powders becomes available for use with additive, the breadth of parts that can be manufactured increases. In the highly regulated aerospace industry, attention to detail and tracking of procedures are two crucial keys to success.
GE Additive and Protolabs partner for this webinar to discuss the trends they are seeing in how metal additive is impacting the aerospace industry. They will discuss materials used in the manufacturing process, heat treatments, how the aerospace industry can leverage these capabilities, and more.
Join us for this informative webinar to learn more.
