About this Webinar
Additive manufacturing (AM) has seen growth in aerospace applications ranging from topology-optimized parts for weight reduction to consolidation of complex multi-part assembly. However, the transition from prototyping to small-scale production is slow due to reproducibility, which further adds to the time and cost of aerospace-qualified materials and print recipes.

Zeiss AM Solutions provides a comprehensive workflow to address quality at each stage of AM: from the qualification of incoming raw materials, to in-process feedback during printing, to the final qualification of the finished parts. This unlocks the correlation between the process controls and their affect on porosity and crack formation, dimensional tolerances, surface roughness and even microstructure control. The versatility of Zeiss' workflow enables a closed-loop solution to identify, isolate and mitigate quality challenges, thus reducing the development and qualification cost of AM parts in the aerospace industry. Zeiss AM Solutions will help in accelerating production of critical aerospace parts using additive manufacturing.
