Additive Manufacturing to Redefine Current Production Technology in Aerospace Landscape
Key manufacturers of aerospace floor panel are strengthening their additive manufacturing (AM) strategy to not just address challenges pertaining to high manufacturing costs, but also achieve reduced tooling, improved performance, and a reduction in the number of parts. A revolutionary shift towards novel technologies and improved processes like additive manufacturing is not limited to single components but advances to more complex systems with variable designs. With an aim to re-invent manufacturing processes and make it more competitive and agile, additive manufacturing is bringing in efficiencies consistent with shorter development process, allowing design complexity, and enhanced performance and reliability. In the future, adopting additive manufacturing would enable companies to de-risk and corroborate ideas in a virtual environment.
Increased Adoption of Advanced Construction Materials in the form of Composites Trending
Superior physical properties including exceptional strength and stiffness-to-density ratios has led to an increased adoption of composite material in aircraft components manufacturing. A combination of at least two distinctive material compositions that neither dissolves or melts together, composite materials are mostly preferred over conventional metal alloys considering high mechanical and thermal properties while having low weight and cost. Composite materials including Polymer matrix composites (PMC), Metal Matrix Composites (MMC), and Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) have found widespread adoption of the aerospace industry. Material innovations like hybrid composites, nanocomposites, and bio composites will further enhance aircraft performance.
Honeycomb Structures to Present Component Designing Potential over Conventional Models
With a focus on weight reduction and increased longevity, industry experts have been studying the potentiality around combining carbon fiber and additive manufacturing—together applied to honeycomb sandwich structures. Key manufacturers are increasingly using Honeycomb structures to achieve superior durability and excellent flexural and shear strength compared to conventional OEM aerospace floor panels. Used extensively in both commercial and military air carriers, aerospace floor panel is honeycomb structure bonded providing ultimate high performance.
RFID-Enabled Aircraft Components Manufacturing To Link Materials and Information Flow
To perfectly synchronize physical flow of components and related information flow without human intervention, the aircraft components manufacturers are deploying RFID technology in workstations, wherein scanners read the data and commands corresponding to robots and its systems. An application of RFID gathering much appreciation is controlling the tools in the dynamic manufacturing environment to efficiently use them during the work shifts. Moreover, tools used either for shared and specific task or lost and forgotten in the manufacturing plant, RFID holds the potential to manage systems pertaining to each tool and optimize its usage and application time—especially for expensive, specialty tools.
Manufacturers Exploring Noise Control Options for Aircraft Floors
Since, aerospace floors are large radiating bodies, consumers and regulatory authorities have been demanding cost-effective technologies to explore noise control options. Manufacturers are exploring light weight alternatives for aircraft floor vibration reduction. Studies project that Enidamp, an innovative damping treatment is the most effective option for controlling floor vibrations up to the frequency of 1500 Hz. Moreover, a combination of vibration isolators and Enidamp is considered even more efficient as it obtains the most constant attenuation curve required for floor vibration control. A combination like this is achieved with isolators between the floor base and the aerospace floor panel with the damping treatment, Enidamp.
