Spare Parts 'Reborn' in the USA

Really like the direction this program is taking with creating spare parts for legacy flight programs through the use of 3D printing.  Since the fabrication of these spare parts is typically high mix and low volume, in many cases, this will prove to be an outstanding fit.

Conformal 3D printing

NO RATINGS
Aside from prototyping and, in some cases, end-production manufacturing, one of the most promising use cases for metal 3D printing and additive manufacturing is for repairing high-value components. But additive manufacturing techniques are not created equal for any of these. The conformal layers that can be achieved with the LENS process on non-flat surfaces of parts makes it stand out for this application.
