Jet Engine Combustors: The traditional methods of producing jet engine combustors are notoriously challenging. High-quality components are created using a 3D engineering technique that utilizes cobalt-chrome alloy powder as the build material to shield the temperature sensor's extremely delicate electronics from soaring airflows and considerable engine icing. Other aircraft components, such as those utilized in ducting systems, are also being manufactured using 3D engineering techniques.

Spare Parts: Aerospace businesses are becoming more and more dependent on quick lead times due to their reliance on spare and replacement parts. The use of additive manufacturing and other 3D engineering services typically enables the speedy production of spare components when they are required. As a result, there is less need for large stockpiles, which lowers inventory costs and guarantees that parts are made locally.

Mounting Brackets: In order to mount complicated life-saving devices to the inside wall of a plane, structural, low-volume metal brackets are frequently manufactured using 3D printing technologies like DMSL/SLM and other 3D engineering services.
