Advancing Aerospace Production with Metal Additive Manufacturing
In this Webinar, you’ll hear firsthand from Honeywell Aerospace experts on the advantages additive manufacturing provided Honeywell for development of metal components made from the nickel-based superalloy Alloy 718. Honeywell officially used Alloy 718 and electron beam melting to make the first Aerospace component which was an experimental design of an existing tube used on its HTF7000 engine. Don and Brian will explain how this process holds the promise of reducing manufacturing costs by 50 percent and dramatically reducing production / delivery time.
In January 2015, Honeywell became the first company to use electron beam melting (EBM) ― popularly known as 3-D printing―to produce an aerospace component from the nickel-base superalloy Alloy 718.
