Stratasys 3D Printing Reaches New Heights in Aerospace Engineering at ULA

By Cimetrix Solutions Inc.

The growing impact of additive manufacturing in aerospace is best exemplified at United Launch Alliance. In this video, you’ll learn how ULA engineers are using Stratasys FDM-based 3D Printers for everything from rapidly prototyping flight parts to producing over 300 tools that increase efficiency on the factory floor to creating innovative new designs for the next generation Vulcan rocket.

A few exciting things you’ll want to to watch for here:

* Practical examples of how ULA is using over 300 printed tools in their manufacturing process
* A propulsion component that was re-designed to be “cheaper, lighter and actually performed better” using 3D printing
* How ULA is working with Stratasys in materials development, for capabilities like ESD and aero-thermal performance
