Manufacturing Applications for FDM Composite Materials (Nylon 12CF™) at Orbital ATK

December 12

Additive manufacturing plays a significant role in the aerospace industry. The introduction of Nylon 12CF™, the first composite FDM material by Stratasys, unlocks even more applications with its unique properties. Join Jerry Feldmiller, Senior Principal Engineering Lead of AM for Orbital ATK’s Launch Vehicle Division, as he shares his Nylon 12CF™ experiences. 

Primary Topics: 
• Orbital ATK’s Flight Systems Group has adopted Stratasys’ first composite material, Nylon12CF, into its lineup of production FDM materials 
• The stiffness, strength, electrical conductivity, and RF energy attenuation properties have opened many new opportunities for numerous spacecraft applications 
• The highest stiffness- and strength-to-weight ratios of any Stratasys FDM material makes Nylon12CF a great alternative to conventional materials and methods 

Presenters: Jerry Feldmiller and David Dahl
