FIT AG signed a memorandum of understanding with Turkish Aerospace, through which each events declare their intention to work intently collectively in analysis and growth to finish superior 3D printing know-how and merchandise leveraging their respective strengths.
For manufacturing specialist FIT AG, additively manufactured parts for the aerospace business are enjoying an more and more essential position. Aviation and aerospace are among the many most essential industries for additive manufacturing. Industrial 3D printing is actually predestined to cut back the general weight of missiles by means of constant and clever light-weight development of particular person parts, leading to aggressive benefits resembling decrease gas consumption and decreased emissions in addition to larger efficiency when it comes to flight length and payload.
“We extremely respect the cooperation with Turkish Aerospace. This partnership will enable us to extend our experience within the aerospace sector,” defined Carl Fruth, founder, and CEO of FIT AG. Prof. Dr. Temel Kotil, President and CEO at Turkish Aerospace, added: “Since we’ve been working collectively on joint tasks for years, it’s a privilege to develop and create such cooperation with FIT AG. As Turkish Aerospace, we’ll preserve including new views and we’ll guarantee the entire course of chain utilizing additive applied sciences inside international requirements.“
Turkish Aerospace had introduced in current months that it supposed to broaden its analysis and growth efforts contemplating quickly creating aerospace applied sciences. The Group attributes nice revolutionary technological and industrial potential to additive manufacturing.
The memorandum of understanding unites two worldwide corporations whose competencies ideally complement one another for the mutual switch of information. Turkish Aerospace is an skilled specialist in aerospace manufacturing, whereas FIT AG contributes its know-how as a specialist in additive manufacturing and additive design. The corporate’s subsidiary FIT Manufacturing is ISO-9100 licensed for aerospace, and the corporate is ambitiously engaged on additional certifications to ascertain itself as an essential accomplice in aerospace.
The purpose of the declared collaboration is to develop enhancements in design and manufacturing with the intention to rapidly implement high-tech merchandise with excessive added worth. In joint research, optimized design and manufacturing processes are to be developed to create revolutionary structural elements for flying elements in plane, drones and satellites that can’t be produced conventionally. FIT and Turkish Aerospace will actively cooperate in each Lupburg and Ankara on matters of certification, manufacturing, and growth of latest AM applied sciences. Analysis priorities embody know-how growth, analysis of additive manufacturing processes, engineering proficiency, and qualification of supplies. Consequently, the supply of revolutionary parts and spare elements may be elevated, whereas realizing price and high quality results.
FIT and Turkish Aerospace have been working collectively on joint tasks for some time. For instance, along with Turkish Aerospace, FIT has developed a brand new sort of mechanical part for the next-generation satellite tv for pc platforms. FIT and Turkish Aerospace are additionally energetic companions in EU-funded analysis packages. For instance, within the COFUND undertaking of EKTAM (Additive Manufacturing Applied sciences Software and Analysis Middle of Gazi College), FIT gives doctoral college students with its machine capacities for analysis functions, and in different funded tasks, the businesses are collaborating on the subject of microsatellites.
