With the advent of 3D or Additive Manufacturing metal printing technology printer manufacturers like Desktop Metals as well as aerospace component manufactures have come to BAF to help develop process techniques to be able to understand the viability and or establish standardized processing that need to be adapted to compensate for the as printed roughness of blades.

If you are unsure what equipment and media you require to achieve your desired surface finish, then send us your part, and we will evaluate it and provide you with a metrology report.
