Aerojet Rocketdyne, a segment of L3Harris Technologies, has invested extensive time and resources for more than two decades to evolve additive manufacturing technology, also known as 3D printing, to meet the stringent requirements of rocket engine and defense systems applications. This investment is now paying dividends as we begin to incorporate the technology into production programs. 3D printing can significantly reduce lead times, make products more affordable, and enable new approaches to design that were not previously feasible. In particular, 3D printing has made a large impact on Aerojet Rocketdyne's ability to deliver hypersonic flight.
The Aerojet Rocketdyne sites located in Daytona Beach, Florida and Los Angeles, California utilize Metal Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing in developing and producing metal alloy additive manufacturing parts for aerospace and defense propulsion and power systems.
