Renaissance Services will take part in the Military Additive Manufacturing Summit & Technology Showcase in Tampa January 16 – 17, 2024. The Summit & Showcase is the nation’s largest aerospace and defense 3D-printing event. It is a magnet for military, government, and 3D-printing industry people alike. Renaissance Services’ booth at the Summit & Showcase will display the company’s latest 3D-printed ceramic tooling and process aids. Renaissance will also feature great 3D-printing pros who can help manufacturers and the military services with reverse engineering and rapid parts casting.

Renaissance Services people designed and printed the ceramic tooling that helped deliver crucial parts to the above venerable fighter, bomber, and refueling aircraft. They are ready to assist military and civilian customers who are in need of reverse engineering and/or rapid parts casting.

When the Department of Defense has a need for legacy replacement parts that lack any technical documentation, the Renaissance Services team uses scanning technologies and their engineering expertise to create complete MIL-STD-31000 technical data packages. The Renaissance Services team then uses the ceramic additive manufacturing expertise of their PERFECT-3D division to 3D-print the tooling and process aids to make the cast parts.

In the absence of a drawing package for a part needing low-run manufacturing, the Renaissance Services team can use structured light scanning to dimension an existing part, generate a drawing package, and design and make 3D-printed tooling needed to make castings.

If the Renaissance Services team has access to a drawing package, they will simply convert the existing drawings for use in designing and making the 3D-printed tooling needed to make castings.

Foundries can use Renaissance Services ceramic 3D-printed tooling to cast the parts. Manufacturers can then machine the castings and make them into finished parts.

The Stratotanker went on duty starting in 1957.The Eagle went on duty starting in 1976. These are two of many aircraft whose maintenance can be extended by short-run additive manufacturing. Renaissance Services has provided such services for both makes of aircraft. Credit: US Air Force
