Aerospace specialist Airframe Designs has become the latest member of the Additive Manufacturing UK (AMUK) national industry body, whose aim is to establish the UK as a world leader in the development and adoption of 3D printing technology. The AMUK has become part of the wider Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) cluster to lead the industry as it becomes an increasingly important part of the manufacturing drive.

“Joining the lead industry organization will help raise awareness of the benefits of additive manufacturing technology and our own engineering excellence. There is a revolution happening in UK manufacturing with the adoption of additive manufacturing and we want to help lead and build on these opportunities,” said Jerrod Hartley, CEO of Airframe Designs. “This technology enables us to produce lightweight, highly accurate, and robust airframe parts and tooling which are delivered at pace, whilst also helping to reduce carbon emissions and achieve Net Zero goals by 2050.”

As part of its commitment to the development of AM, Airframe Designs has recently invested in a second 3D printing machine, a Stratasys Fortus 450, a new five-axis milling machine, two Bambu Labs X1E printers, and new resin printing technology to offer increased capability and quality of parts and tools for its customer base.

The services offered by Airframe Designs meet the demand from the aviation and defense sectors to create new parts or re-engineer obsolete parts in an agile, cost-effective, and sustainable manner.

With polymer AM technology, combined with 3D scanning and 3D modeling, it is possible to deliver creative solutions to complex engineering problems in the aviation and defense part market, including solutions for airframe tooling. This technology can also be adapted for other industries including space, nuclear, motorsport, and rail.

Recent projects undertaken by Airframe Designs include the design and manufacture of several 3D printed tooling fixtures to aid the installation of external sensors onto the fuselage of a special mission military aircraft and the integration of new systems into heavy lift drone platforms.

The company has also been responsible for the conceptual design, at a platform level, for new uncrewed air systems, test rigs and tooling for electric vehicle propulsion systems, and most recently the design and analysis of operator consoles for a special mission aircraft.
