NineSigma, representing a Global Aviation Corporation, invites proposals describing materials and flexible manufacturing processes enabling low volume, on demand production of a variety of aviation grade parts
Large-scale manufacturing has long been the gold standard since the industrial revolution. Capital expenditures to initiate production can be recouped through the volume of product that can be produced. Recently, 3D printing has greatly simplified the process of prototype creation and testing. Although, prototyping may be limited to easily accessible 3D printing friendly materials. Producing limited quantities of production grade products as demand dictates remains a challenge in many industries.
NineSigma’s client is seeking an aviation-approved material paired with a flexible manufacturing process that will enable the on demand production of a variety of parts at low volumes. The material for the final product must not contain carbon, and be an aviation-approved material that is able to be bonded to aluminum.
