Aerospace Industry

TriMech Advanced Manufacturing Services provides companies in the Aerospace Industry with 3D printing, prototyping, advanced tooling and production assistance.

Aerospace Solutions

TriMech provides aerospace manufacturers with prototyping, advanced tooling and production applications. 3D printed parts are now commonplace on aircraft and spacecraft — cementing the technology as an engineering mainstay.

Our industry knowledge and our abilities to support high requirement applications is what brings aerospace companies to us. Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM) with additive manufacturing allows for the creation of rigid, lightweight aerospace parts, leveraging advanced materials such as ULTEM 9085, not achievable with other manufacturing methods.

Aerospace Customer Benefits

Our customers, such as L3, Bombardier, Boeing and Standard Aero are but a few partners benefiting from these advancements in additive technologies and materials. Like others in the aerospace industry, they are experiencing performance improvements with superior lightweight part design from integrated structures and component consolidation.

By reducing weight, part count, design constraints and supply-chain risk, additive manufacturing is creating new production efficiencies for the aerospace industry.

3D Printed aerospace part

Create Components Faster

Stratasys FDM machines work with production grade thermoplastics including ULTEM 9085, which provides an ideal solution for the manufacturing of component parts for aircraft, as it is lightweight and able to withstand intense heat (flame retardant).

PPSF Filter 3D Printed Part

Reduce Production Costs

By replacing expensive and lead-time critical CNC-milled parts with in-house manufactured plastic parts, you can dramatically reduce your production costs. The printed plastic parts also perform better technically, weigh less, and provide better electrical insulation.

ST-130 Sacrificial Tooling Material

Improve performance with Composite Parts

Improve production efficiency and flight performance while simplifying inventory with strong, lightweight composite parts.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Service

Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys FDM 3D Printer

Tough long-lasting parts

FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.

FDM parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.

Meet production demands

Our FDM production machines are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce.

With the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, we can provide longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing service providers.

Gain new possibilities

TriMech's FDM 3D printing service will help to streamline your business processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way.

Industries we work with are able to cut lead times and costs, we help clients to deliver better products and get to market faster.
