Artificial intelligence and machine learning approaches in additive manufacturing offer substantial merit in meeting the industry’s needs.

The aerospace industry is on a constant quest to adopt new technologies that offer competitive advantage and step-change capability. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) approaches in additive manufacturing (AM) offer substantial merit in meeting the industry’s needs. Research insights suggest that combining these advanced technologies could streamline existing research and development (R&D) efforts, subsequently improving part quality, reducing costs, and enhancing overall system-level efficiency. Despite these benefits, this integration presents unique challenges, such as the need for robust data management systems and the development of reliable and accurate AI algorithms. Additionally, validating the repeatability and reliability of AI-powered systems in complex AM aerospace applications raises more inquiries than concrete answers, dictating the need for further exploration for widespread adoption.

America Makes, the national additive manufacturing innovation institute, has captured the market’s needs, identifying a brewing interest across the sector to further explore the opportunities and challenges of integrating AI and ML approaches in AM for aerospace applications.
