In order to advance its production operations, Antemo has invested in Stratasys F900 3D Printer. The Austrian engineering and manufacturing service bureau aims to open up new business opportunities by fabricating certifiable 3D printed production parts for the aerospace industry.
The F900 3D printer has already proven its capabilities in the aerospace industry. Indeed, airplane manufacturers like Boom Supersonic leverages Stratasys technology for the production of aircraft parts. The industrial device has also proven to be efficient in other industries such as transport or art.
Antemo on its side, already services various industries. With the addition of the industrial FDM solution to its portfolio, the company will manufacture prototypes, production and small series parts that could be used beyond the aerospace sector, in the healthcare or semiconductor areas as well. According to the company, the AM technology would enable the printing of materials that enable easier part certification – adding a new competitive edge to its business proposition.
As a reminder, the technology enables 914.4 x 609.6 x 914.4 mm sized parts to be built in one print. In the aerospace sector, such size might facilitate the production of larger interior aircraft cabin parts.
“The ability to 3D print parts that are certifiable for the aerospace industry was not possible for us in previous years. As such, to date we have been using CNC milling and turning for our part production,” says Martin Brunner, CEO, Antemo. “However, the Stratasys F900 3D Printer offers another dimension to our production insofar as both time and cost-savings; it allows us to by-pass lengthy and complicated programming, as well as expensive production costs associated with CNC milling. We will now be able to produce customized solutions at a lower cost per part and make production more repeatable and reliable.”
“For the aerospace industry, we see great potential in the F900 3D printer to expand our production capabilities,” adds Brunner. “When creating interior aircraft cabin parts, the Stratasys ULTEM™ 9085 resin available on the F900 3D printer is a particular asset, as it is FST compliant and offers high chemical and thermal resistance. This is ideal for producing lightweight parts on-demand for our customers that can be certified for the aerospace industry.”
