Ascent Aerospace to Host Virtual Launch of Large Format 3D Printer


Santa Ana, CA – June 8, 2020 – Ascent Aerospace, a leading provider of tooling systems, factory automation and integration services, will be hosting a live webinar on Tuesday, June 9 at 10:00am PT (1:00pm ET).  This webinar is the virtual launch of the large format additive manufacturing machine that was recently installed in Santa Ana, CA, co-located with Ascent’s composite tooling shop, autoclave and clean room.

The LFAM machine has an industry leading build area, providing customers in aerospace, automotive, maritime, energy and others the opportunity to benefit from large-scale printed composite tooling.  By combining this technology with Ascent’s in-house tooling expertise and heritage engineering capability, it will be possible to fabricate and deliver production-ready fixtures and molds with significantly reduced lead-times compared to traditional metallic tooling.  The wide variety of materials that are compatible with the LFAM, such as ABS, Polycarbonate, Nylon, and PESU, will allow Ascent to create tailored solutions to meet customer needs and specifications.

The webinar will consist of footage of the machine in action, a presentation by the product manager of the advantages of additive manufacturing to the tooling sector and more.  To register for the event, click here.
