  • 09:20 - 09:50 -- GDTECH

    A New design cycle thanks to additive manufacturing. Illustration based on a T-piece, part of a wing leading edge de-icing system

    In the last few years, GDTech was part of several research projects dedicated to Additive Manufacturing. One of them, FASAMA, more specifically addressed the design of aerospace parts, and allowed the definition of a proper design cycle. We will present and illustrate this new concept using a challenging application: the redesign of a connecting T-Duct, part of the de-icing system of a wing leading edge. Commercial numerical tools, their strengths and their shortcomings will be discussed in light of this project. Topology optimization, Design for Additive Manufacturing and Process Simulation, all were major tools that enabled GDTech and Sonaca to successfully produce an enhanced AM version of this part.

  • 11:05 - 11:35 -- LISI AEROSPACE Additive Manufacturing

    Serial flying parts for DASSAULT AVIATION at LISI AEROSPACE ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING: from Process Qualification to Serial Production

    For years, DASSAULT AVIATION and LISI AEROSPACE ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING have worked together in order to develop the range of serial flying parts made by Additive Manufacturing (AM). The first parts identified as candidates to be manufactured with AM were in stainless steel, which led to the qualification of a dedicated machine. Different aircraft programs are concerned and problems to be solved are various : small serial quantity of complex parts for the RAFALE, highly-finished products on F8X, ATL2 retrofit or customization products for F2000 MRA. On each of these aircrafts, LISI AEROSPACE AM supports DASSAULT AVIATION by providing its know-how to manufacture high value added products that benefit the most from the technology and works closely with the design teams to optimize the design of the products. In order to further enlarge the range of products, DASSAULT AVIATION has decided to qualify our Concept Laser X LINE 2000R on AlSi7Mg0.6. Goal: manufacture in 2020 the demisting tubing for the RAFALE in one component rather than welding different ones. Others parts will be progressively be added to the list of serial flying parts.

  • 11:40 - 12:10 -- IRT SAINT EXUPERY

    Design of "lattice" structures in additive manufacturing: a multi-scale approach 

    The "lattice" structures are likely to provide considerable added value for the aeronautics and space industry. The exploration of the potential of those structures by engineering offices is currently limited by the knowledge, tools and models available for their design and in-service behaviour. Through a multi-scale experimental and numerical approach, the IRT Saint Exupéry in collaboration with the IRT SystemX will present an original scientific and technological method to measure and quantify variabilities inherited from geometric, metallurgical and mechanical scattering. This method has been used to develop more robust industrial design tools for lattices structures.

  • 15:10 - 15:40 -- NOVITOM

    Synchrotron X-ray microtomography, a powerful tool for advanced NDT and 3D material characterisation adapted to additive manufacturing

    X-ray microtomography is a powerful imaging technique that has proven to be an effective tool for non-destructive 3D inspection. Nowadays, it is more and more employed as a standard characterisation method in R&D applications as well as a means of control in production line. It can be applied to nearly all kinds of materials and types of parts. The use of X-ray synchrotron sources pushes back the limits of the technology and offers the possibility to inspect at high resolution large parts without cutting them. It provides outstanding image quality and enhanced phase segmentation capability thanks to phase contrast imaging mode. In addition, the high brilliance of sources allows ultra-fast acquisition for the follow-up of process in real time. The presentation will be based on concrete examples such as the rugosity characterisation of surfaces in AM parts inaccessible with conventional techniques, the dimensional control by 3D mapping the geometrical deviation from CAD files, or even the detection and analysis of cracks inside metallic components.

  • 16:20 - 16:50 -- BURLOAK TECHNOLOGIES

    Delivering serial production flight components using additive manufacture – A Challenge that is not for the feint of heart.

    In today’s market it seems that everyday another company is announcing how they used AM to make a pretty looking organic shape and explaining how it can change the way parts are made. The reality though is that making these prototype parts is not that difficult in and of itself, but there remains a “reality chasm” to be bridged on the journey to true serial production of flight parts and this is a much more challenging proposition. In this talk, Peter Adams will explain the journey and the challenges that his team have had to overcome in developing serial components for space and aerospace that capitalize on AM technology using multiple materials and multiple AM modalities. In the discussion Peter will explain Burloak’s journey to qualification and what they are doing to grow their position as a major supplier of AM production components in aerospace.
