LISI Aerospace Utilise Additive Manufacturing Across Production

Monday, 27 September 2021

LISI Aerospace have made 3D printing a part of everyday production, achieving ROI in just six months on top of other savings.

LISI Aerospace’s manufacturing plant at Rugby, UK, specialises in the manufacture of fasteners for the aircraft industry, providing fasteners for key clients including Airbus and the Civil Aircraft market.

Having started with Ultimaker FFF printers, in 2020 LISI Aerospace completely enhanced their Additive Manufacturing capabilities with the addition of multiple Markforged composite 3D printers.

“When you can so easily see the improvements from applying Additive, it just makes you want to drive forward and change everything! There is so much more we can do, and applications we aren’t even aware of yet" says Daniel Bostridge, Production Manager High Volume 1 and High Volume 2

Now, the team using Additive have enabled: 
 > Fast problem solving and higher productivity, with less damage, wastage and downtime
 > The ability to identify and fix issues earlier on in the production process
 > Improved preventative maintenance for reduced stoppages
