Aerospace Additive Manufacturing

Fathom is a provider of aerospace additive manufacturing services for quick turnaround aerospace prototypes and production aerospace manufacturing.

AEROSPACE Introduction

Additive manufacturing of lightweight components for aerospace applications reduces fuel consumption, material costs, and CO2 emissions

Engine and turbine parts are typical applications for aerospace companies. By integrating additive manufacturing into their production, complex geometries can be manufactured quickly and cost-effectively.

Since part production does not require tooling, production costs are reduced and small production runs are made possible.

Lightweight structures manufactured using additive manufacturing are high strength and the material savings translate into reduced costs. As a result, airplanes consume significantly less fuel and emit less carbon dioxide.

Aerospace Applications


Engine Parts
3D printing technology can reduce engine production costs without compromising performance or reliability.
Eliminate the complex, time-consuming, and costly procedure of casting turbine blades in order to increase time to market.
Rocket Engines
Additive manufacturing gives both large and small companies the ability to quickly reach space.
Fuel Nozzles
Components designed as a single part simplify assembly and quality assurance.
Lightweight Brackets
Material and weight savings lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Flow Measurement Probes
The ability to create internal passages not possible with CNC machining make additive a clear choice.
