Aero India 2015, the 10th international show on aerospace, defence, civil aviation, airport infrastructure and defence engineering in Bangalore, India has been a great success so far. Our 3D Printer is able to draw attention from a lot of Senior Management Executives. The Majority of the visitors enquired for Metal 3D Printers as well. It was such a busy day for three of us manning the stall that we were able break for lunch only at 3:30 PM. I am sure Aero India is mother of all the trade shows in India.
Hon Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the event and Aeroshow witnessed an overwhelming response. Aero India 2015 has 295 Indian and 29 international companies displaying the latest developments in the field of aerospace. Altem is located at Hall AB: Stall No AB 2.31. Altem was the sole firm involved in all aspects of Professional 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing to showcase at one of India’s iconic events like Aeroshow 2015.
Lot of media people visited us as well today. Altem’s participation in Aeroshow was also covered by Economic Times today.
3D Printed Aircraft parts, made from FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) approved materials like ULTEM 9085 , ULTEM 1010, certified for FST (Flame-Smoke-Toxicity) were on display. ULTEM is a high-performance thermoplastic suited for parts that need superior durability. As we all know, in the aerospace industry, the total weight of an aircraft affects fuel consumption. ULTEM offers significant weight reduction compared with metal components such as aluminium, but can offer comparable impact strength.
With the stress on ‘Make in India’ campaign initiated by Hon Prime Minister Narendra Modi, 3D Printing is one of the technologies, greatly poised to be adopted by leading aerospace & defence establishments in India to visualize and validate their airworthy parts instantly.
