The SM2 students were from the senior middle schools in China and are currently undertaking a bridging program in preparation for their undergraduate studies in Singapore.  Continue reading

Aerospace sustainability study of industrial 3D printing

EOS, Krailling, Germany, collaborated with Airbus Group Innovations (previously EADS Innovation Works), of Filton, Bristol, to complete an environmental lifecycle comparison of two key production technologies, rapid investment casting and direct metal laser sintering (DMLS).

The Airbus Group Innovations-EOS eco-assessment, applied to an Airbus A320 nacelle hinge bracket (a highly standardized part), strove to include detailed aspects of the overall lifecycle: from the supplier of the raw powder metal, to the equipment manufacturer (EOS), and to the end-user (Airbus Group Innovations). Adapted from Airbus’ streamlined lifecycle assessment (SLCA) and ISO 14040 series requirements data, the testing will serve as the basis for continued "Cradle-to-Cradle" study into other aerospace parts, processes and end-of-life strategies.
