Fathom is a provider of aerospace additive manufacturing services for quick turnaround aerospace prototypes and production parts. 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, especially metal 3D printing, 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 saving translates into reduced costs. Due to advancements in additive manufacturing, airplanes can consume significantly less fuel and emit less carbon dioxide.
