The event was held on November 30 with the collaboration of CATEC, Airbus Defense and Space and ITP Aero

The company Renishaw organized for the second time a conference on additive manufacturing  at the Aerópolis Business Center.

In this occasion, four experts from the sector presented their experiences in the process of adoption of metallic additive manufacturing. The day began with the visit to the facilities of Catec, where the participants could see first-hand their facilities, equipment and technological developments.

Dr. Fernando Lasagni, head of the Materials and Processes Division of the Advanced Center for Aerospace Technologies (Fada-Catec), explained the impact of additive manufacturing and how Catec has developed applications for the aerospace sector. Lasagni is recognized for his work in the application of additive manufacturing in the aerospace field. `We have been working for the aerospace sector for almost a decade. Today we have developed for and with our partners applications for a large number of platforms, such as the Airbus A400M, C295, A320neo, the Vega, Ariane5 and Bloostar launchers, the Cheops, Quantum, Proba3, Seosat, Hipparcos satellites, the Racer helicopter and the regional aircraft, these last two, technological demonstrators of the Clean Sky 2 program ´.

Likewise, Airbus Defense & Space, led by Jorge Vilanova, coordinator of Additive Technology at Airbus Defense & Space, Space Systems, addressed the cases of different applications and trends for the industrialization of this technology.

The company ITP Aero, one of the founding members of the Center for Advanced Aeronautical Manufacturing (CFAA) was another of the speakers of this day. Javier Díaz Guitérrez, Additive Manufacturing & Welding Process Engineer at ITP Aero, explained the potential of metallic additive manufacturing, the future that awaits the aerospace sector with the adoption of this technology and the experiences of ITP.

Renishaw was founded more than 40 years ago and expert in its beginnings in the aeronautical sector was in charge of exposing the optimization of productivity, monitoring and control of the additive manufacturing process.
