Large Format Additively Manufactured Tooling and Composite End-Use Parts
|AES has been the leaders since 2016 in large format polymer additive manufacturing with the purchase of our first x-large format printer, the Cincinnati BAAM printer.
Our primary focus in our company is to support composite applications through the manufacturing of 3D printed tooling for composite trim & drill fixtures as well and layup and cure molds. Beyond tooling, AES has found outstanding applications in end-use parts that have replaced both traditional composite and metal fabrication methods.
The abstract will provide a current update on where the market is with adoption of LFAM printed tooling for composites, what's new in that space, as well as share some end-use part stories outside of tooling that are changing the way companies look at using 3D printing for actual part production. I will share examples of both tooling and end use parts.
