Advanced flight platforms are placing pressure on aerospace companies to adopt rapid manufacturing technologies that accelerate the supply chain and encourage innovation at every level, including product development, inspection and MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul). At the same time, there’s a growing need to lower fuel costs by efficiently replacing legacy parts or creating new product enhancements for aging fleets.
Metro Aerospace manufactures the Microvanes and the Locating Fixture tool used to install the Microvanes by leveraging leading-edge technology, Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing). Our products are produced using both Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Additive Manufacturing processes and equipment, using light-weight, composite materials for both.
By using 3D printing solutions, Metro Aerospace elevates quality, standards, and integrity of our products, as well as, streamlines workflows, inspires collaboration, and supports new, innovative end-to-end solutions from concept to prototype to production. This allows us to cut lead times and costs, produce high quality products, and get those products to market faster.
