Part Production

IMG_3726Whether a project requires a R&D scope or a complete production run for additive manufacturing, Volunteer Aerospace has the capabilities to provide for any job size.  Volunteer Aerospace has experience in research and development, casting validations, and product runs.  Utilizing state-of-the-art machines and know-how, Volunteer Aerospace can provide quick turnarounds for time sensitive projects.  Additive manufacturing allows faster cycle times when compared to traditional manufacturing processes and immediate prototyping validations.

Designing for Additive

The manufacturing industry has been using traditional technologies to increase production rates and part quality.  Designing for additive, through Volunteer Aerospace’s training program, can become as easy as designing for legacy processes.  Leveraging years of experience and insight for cad-to-part success, Volunteer Aerospace can help any sized project.

Process Development and Metallurgical Analysis

The current additive manufacturing industry requires a per-project approach when dealing with specific alloys and designs.  Volunteer Aerospace provides a complete process development service that can increase productivity, part quality, and part print-ability.  When required, specific applications may need unique parameters.  Surface finish, mechanical properties, and print-ability are metrics that benefit from proper process parameter development and refinement.  Through metallurgical analysis, mechanical property validation, and proof-of-concept approaches, Volunteer Aerospace provides a turn-key development procedure for customers requiring a solid and reliable process.
