TCT Aerospace Application Award SHORTLIST 2017

The Aerospace Application Award — the wider aerospace industry has been a hotbed of innovation since the first time the Wright brothers took flight. Technologies incubated by the aerospace industry such as fly-by-wire control and structural composites have made their way into industries from automotive to consumer tech. It’s fair to say that aerospace leads and others follow; but what’s the industry’s best application of AM today?

Following some strong competition and an intensive review we’re delighted to announce that the following projects have been shortlisted in the Aerospace Application category for the TCT Awards 2017:


- 3D Ceram - 3DOptic Ceramic Aerospace Optics
- 3D Systems - Airbus RF Waveguide Filters
- Sciaky - EBAM Space Tanks
- Aristo-Cast - Magnesium Seat Frame


What next?

Each of these submissions will be sent in full to a selection of the TCT Expert Advisory Board. The board comprises of experts across many disciplines, and judging will be split between those who are best placed to judge each particular category. Winners will be announced on the night of 27th September at the inaugural TCT Awards.

Please note: The applications include a host of partnerships that have taken the project from design through to manufacture, where possible all parties will be recognised in each submission.
