AVPE completes NATEP funded Additive Layer Technology programme

AVPE has recently completed a 2 year ALM project during which it successfully manufactured a number of different MRO components using Renishaw AL technology.

AVPE has developed a broad understanding of the complex issues surrounding the application of AL technology in the Aerospace market and is ready to review the investment required to create an ALM cell, once the certification requirements of the Aerospace sector have been defined.

AVPE is working closely with Airbus Filton to establish the post processing requirements for manufacturing MRO components to meet the certification process which is being defined.

Commenting on this R&D project, Chris Steel (Chairman) said: “AL is a potentially disruptive technology to metallic component manufacturers, particularly in the MRO market and it is important that AVPE understand the dynamics of this emerging technology in Aerospace in order to make the right investment decision.”
