Event Details

NAMIC is co-organising this hybrid webinar with AAIS, to introduce an AM digital initiative to support companies for post-pandemic recovery.

In the past year, the aerospace industry has been heavily impacted from the widespread fallout due to the COVID-19 pandemic, especially the airlines, MROs and suppliers. In this hybrid webinar hosted virtually and in-person, we will be introducing an AM digital initiative to support companies to create digital warehouses, and re-think how their business can benefit from on-demand materialization with distributed manufacturing enabled by AM. Accelerating lead time is one of the key outcomes – it is an important factor for customer satisfaction and inventory management. We envision to have a dialogue, and help all of you understand the value of AM and on-demand distributed manufacturing for transforming the Aerospace industry as it recovers from the pandemic.

For this purpose, together with our co-organising partner, AAIS, we have invited ST Engineering, Additive Flight Solutions and Flare Dynamics as our guest speakers.

ST Engineering and Additive Flight Solutions (via parent company SIAEC) offer products with DOA and POA certification, and have worked with NAMIC on several initiatives., and have worked with NAMIC on several initiatives. Flare Dynamics, a Singapore-based drone engineering and design company, will share their experience on deploying design-for-AM and electronic 3D printing on the drone body to improve functionality and realize light-weight designs. Enabling a local on-demand distributed manufacturing network with improved functional designs can help MRO companies move up the value chain, and lessen external supplier dependencies due to force majeure events. Participants will also learn about the certification and qualification requirements in the Aerospace industry – a topic for discussion.

Join us to discover the growth opportunities that AM can bring to the Aerospace industry.
