The aerospace industry was among the first to embrace AM for production purposes.
AM enables to reduce part weight and simplify part production. Producing light-weight parts is economically crucial in aerospace since weight affects fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, speed and even safety. In addition, additive manufacturing can produce components with complex geometries in lightweight materials and allows for the consolidation of numerous parts into one single component, thus reducing weight and production costs.
Dealing predominantly with regulated parts, it is critical to keep track of parts at every step during its lifetime, starting with the actual production process, and maintaining high confidentiality standards. Assembrix developed a platform that answers these crucial needs and empowers users to better monitor the Digital Thread. It offers an integrated, encrypted platform that oversees the process and ensures that only allowed users and printers are involved.
