Solid Concepts has produced multiple 3-D printed components for aerospace applications that it is highlighting at NBAA 2013 (Booth No. N2011).
The company, based in Valencia, Calif., provides rapid prototyping, digital manufacturing, tooling and injection molding to the aerospace, automotive, industrial design and medical industries. It has more than two decades of experience in 3-D printing, or additive manufacturing technologies, producing parts from prototypes to production components by accurately “printing” layers of material until a 3-D form is created.
GE Aviation has acquired Morris Technologies and sister company Rapid Quality Manufacturing, of Cincinnati, Ohio, as part of a planned expansion of engineering and manufacturing capability. The terms of the deal were not disclosed. The two privately held companies specialize in additive manufacturing, an automated process for creating rapid prototypes and end-use production components.
