How metal AM fuels aerospace innovation, drives competitive advantage. During this session, the presenters will discuss their collaboration as well as how metal AM gives Joby a distinct competitive advantage.
Located in Northern California, Joby Aviation has been steadily working toward its goal of providing safe, affordable, fully electric air transportation accessible to everyone. Imagine an air taxi that takes off vertically, then quietly and quickly carries you over the congestion below, giving you back that time you’d otherwise spend sitting in traffic. Technology has advanced to the point where designing and operating an all-electric aircraft is completely viable. Joby’s team has been discreetly designing and flight testing this vehicle - and has chosen 3D Systems as its additive manufacturing (AM) partner for certified production of large components.
Joby and 3D Systems have entered into an agreement surrounding 3D Systems’ DMP Factory 500 for production of large, titanium components. To complement 3D Systems’ scalable metal manufacturing solution, Joby has designed custom software and built new, state-of-the-art facilities to explore and push the limits of the DMP Factory 500.
