White Paper: Innovative Technologies Serving the Aerospace Industry Advantages of Rotomolding and 3D Printing 


The aerospace industry’s pursuit of enhanced performance and efficiency is enabled by advanced, nimble manufacturing techniques. However, part weight and complexity can challenge this pursuit. Every ounce of weight shaved off an aircraft helps airlines to save fuel. Thus, the weight of each part matters.


Polymer-based materials can replace traditional manufactured parts to achieve design goals and create more advanced aircraft. Two processes that leverage the capabilities supplied by thermoplastic resins are rotational molding and additive manufacturing (laser sintering). These technologies can provide the ideal combination of factors for safe, effective component design and fabrication. Explore the strengths and potential applications of each process.
