The Need: The aviation market is pursuing for high-performance aero-structures at a competitive price. This becomes ​possible with complex geometries that could be manufactured only by Titanium printing

The Vision: Upgrade the Israeli aero-structures industry by exploiting existing technologies that could design and print these optimal aero-structures

The Target: Develop the ability to design and manufacture geometrically complex aerostructures which can be manufactured only additively

The Technology: Powder bed, moderate size, type to be decided upon evaluation

The Material: Ti-6Al-4v grade 5

  • AM theoretically enables aero-structure with superior characteristics in competitive cost
  • Could be welded easily compared to Aluminum
  • Could be tested according to ASTM F2924 − 14: Standard Specification for Additive Manufacturing Titanium-6 Aluminum-4 Vanadium with Powder Bed Fusion
