Volvo Aero MRO to develop piece part fixturing from 3D printed processes

Volvo Aero MRO has begun working with the University of Massachusetts Life Science Laboratories facility Additive Fabrications department to develop piece part fixturing from 3D printed processes.

The first fixture under development is being manufactured using the selective laser sintering (SLS) method. The aim of the project is to develop process and knowledge of printing fixtures directly from CAD to end product within acceptable tolerances and with reduced time and costs of conventional fixture manufacturing.

As a small business Volvo Aero MRO is constantly looking at ways to use technology in an innovative way to improve its ability to compete in the global market.
