Velo3D and Honeywell Aerospace announced a partnership to qualify Velo3D’s Sapphire system as a manufacturing platform for 3-D print production of aircraft components. The system was selected for building highly complex geometries without the requirement of support structures. It will be located in Honeywell Aerospace’s Phoenix facility. The qualification process is underway and is focused on Inconel. Velo3D will provide expertise in developing suitable parameter sets for Honeywell Aerospace to complete material qualification utilizing the 3-D system to achieve optimal material properties.
