Rapid Prototyping Services For Aerospace

Malcolm Nicholls Ltd (MNL) supports the aerospace industry on all levels from scale presentation models of complete craft to high-tolerance engineering prototypes parts.

Aerospace companies have been quick to embrace the advantages that 3D printing / additive layer manufacturing provides. Whether it be for rapid turnaround prototypes at the development stage of projects, tooling to be used in production line jigs, or parts built in functional materials as end-use components – aerospace clients benefit from MNL’s wide range of materials expertise and understanding of complex engineering challenges.

Early testing and evaluation helps keep projects within time and budgetary constraints. For Aerospace models and prototypes MNL can implement Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) to produce high strength components, without the need and cost of tooling, directly from your 3D CAD files.

In addition to producing components and assemblies for engineering prototypes, MNL can also match end use plastics and metals through CNC machining, injection moulding and vacuum forming to meet our customers specific requirements.

Fuel delivery systems and hydraulic manifolds, full size seating mock ups to in-flight entertainment systems and galley equipment, avionic mechanical deigned parts, components for structural design and stress analysis, wind tunnel models are among the many services MNL can provide to the aerospace industry.

For any applications or requirements please contact MNL’s Technology Consultants to answer any questions about your specific project requirement.
