Aiming to create new value and our future growth, AeroEdge is focusing on AM ; Additive Manufacturing tehcnology. We carried out the business as a service bureau, and are prototyping a new business model.
What is Additive Manufacturing?
AM-Additive Manufacturing is one of the cutting-edge technologies known as 3D Printing, with the potential to dramatically transform manufacturing methods and supply chains. To maximize the value created by AM, AeroEdge understands that we should recognize some points such as functional improvement and weight reduction with an optimized structure, simplifying the supply chain and reduction of assembly costs by parts integration, and execution of digital engineering with other advanced technologies.
Why AM by AeroEdge?
For companies like AeroEdge whose core competence is machining process, AM technology could be a threat because this new technology can drastically reduce the machining process. Borders on the value chain from "planning" and "design" to "manufacturing" are blurry since AM technologies and markets are still in the early stage. From our perspective, AM technology brings us a chance to jump into the upstream processes in the value chain as a game changer. AeroEdge is challenging to create new value with AM technology, including optimized structural design, advanced product planning, new material development, and numerical analysis.
