Metal 3d Printing in Defense
You are here
A

The defense industry is among the earliest adopters of metal 3D printing along with the Aerospace industry. There are numerous examples of successful use of metal 3D printing in Defense sector. Additive Manufacturing has been deployed in a myriad of applications within the Defense industry. State-run defense agencies and private defense organizations have long since adopted metal 3D printing  and are using Additive Manufacturing  in highly critical projects for missiles, fighter jets, customized equipment, handheld weapons, drones, respiratory gear, cranial & mandible implants, prosthetics & orthotics, spare parts, tools and much more. Metal 3d printing in defense results in low wastage rate as compared to traditional manufacturing process.

Apart from “native” ALSi10Mg alloy, Wipro 3D offers specific Al alloys as well as the ability to adopt new alloys, based on customer applications and business case. We have developed a robust applied domain understanding in space technology based on our own research, and in the course of our work with one of the world’s prestigious space agencies, resulting in mature know-how on the application of metal AM to space applications.

 AM research projects for defense applications include embedded electronics & communications systems, rotating & dynamic parts, bi-metallic AM processes, ceramic AM processes and rapid repair needs among others.

 With the present AM adoption at an advanced stage, the metal 3D printing in Defense industry is poised to catapult itself into series production. Wipro 3D, a leading metal 3D printing service provider , has delivered successful AM components for strategic communication, hostile tracking & warning systems, frost protection articles, flame tubes, missile propulsion and guidance systems in Ti6Al4V, AlSi10Mg and Nickel based alloys.
