According to Army Technology, “3D printing in the defence manufacturing: issue 100 of Global Defence Technology out now. Global Defence Technology is back for a special celebratory 100th issue, as always packed with the latest industry news and analysis. In this issue, we explore the potential of additive manufacturing for defence applications, speak to Airbus about its involvement in the new DSEI Space Hub launching this year, and more.”
According to EDA’s ground-breaking project, “Additive Manufacturing Feasibility Study & Technology Demonstration. Aims to assess the areas where Additive Manufacturing (AM) (3D-printing) can have a positive impact on defence capabilities and to demonstrate its feasibility. In the morning of 31 May 2017, the 3D-printing lab was loaded on-board a Spanish C-130 and completed a successful 30-minute flight. This test was pivotal to examining the feasibility of the facility to be deployed by air. After landing, the lab and its equipment were inspected and found to have encountered no issues from the airlift.”
According to Mark Mirotznik, professor of electrical engineering at the University of Delaware,” for technologies like wearables and things like that, it means we don’t have to have flat electronics anymore or flat antennas, it can be flexible. So for those applications, it’s really novel that you can actually print all of this stuff on a flexible membrane. It opens up new possibilities. 3D printing (specifically, NanoParticle Jetting technology offered by XJet) is the only manufacturing technique capable of meeting the production demands of a new kind of passive beam steering 5G antenna designed by his team.”
