Lockheed Martin and Stratasys Release Aerospace 3D Printing Filament Data
Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS) is already in the business of supplying the largest number of 3D printed polymer aerospace parts. Now, the company has qualified yet another polymer for 3D printing for aerospace applications. In conjunction with Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Metropolitan State University of Denver, the company has released the baseline material qualification data for its Antero 840CN03 filament, used to 3D print parts for the Orion spacecraft.
“We want to demonstrate a new model for how industry, manufacturers and academia can collaborate to gather and release material qualification data that helps accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing across the aerospace industry,” said Foster Ferguson, Director of Aerospace for Stratasys.
