GARDN II Projects (2014-2019)

Additive Manufacturing for Landing Gear




Long-term objective: Apply the laser based powder-bed technology to structural parts to reduce their weight and improve sustainability.

The two main objectives of this project are to:

  • Validate the performance of additive manufacturing (AM) process for aerospace non-structural parts;
  • Validate the use of standard post-manufacturing processes required for the certification of aerospace parts produced by AM.

To reach TRL 6 within 3 years, the landing gear industry needs to gain confidence in the AM process but also develop the post-manufacturing process.

At the end of the project, the performance of components made by AM will be compared to certifiable machined parts used as reference.
