Additive Manufacturing for the Aerospace industry: Process and Product Qualification


With more the 20 years of experience in Additive Manufacturing BEAMIT SPA is a leading service provider of components for high level end users. Today BEAMIT is producing AM-components for customers in Aerospace, Oil and Gas – and Automotive/Racing. In July 2019, Sandvik acquired a significant stake in BEAMIT to further strengthen both companies’ offering to the additive market – from metal powder to finished components.

Martina’s presentation is focused on all qualification steps required for customers in the most demanding industries, such as aerospace. She will give an overview of powder specification definition, process parameters development and validation both for Additive Manufacturing and Post Processing (e.g. HT), material characterization and FAI step for part production validation.
