To enable the human being to reach the Space, and sail the Oceans, teams of the aerospace and aeronautic industry need to work with high performance materials, last generation technologies and continuous innovation process, reducing time and costs of production. This is possible also thanks to Additive manufacturing.
Spring srl, with 20 years of experience in 3D printing , is the ideal partner for these teams, infact, this entreprise guarantees certified process and high-performance materials. The Vicenza-based company has achieved the certification AS 9100:2016 for the production of prototypes and functional components for the aerospace sector. Process quality and know-how enable Spring srl to produce functional components suitable for critical production environments.

Since the creation of 3D printing this technology provided only prototypes, but in the last 10 years the most innovative aerospace companies changed its use. Now additive manufacturing can produce functional components with materials such as ULTEM 9085, ULTEM 1010 and PEKK (ANTERO 800NA) to replace metals and composites.
ULTEM 9085, is a flame-retardant thermoplastic V0 that with its FST (Flame, Smoke, Toxicity), Far 25.853 certification and chemical resistance is the best material for the aerospace sector. This thermoplastic is also extremely light, feature that enables weight reduction and fuel saving.
ULTEM 1010 is used for functional tests under extreme conditions, infact, it can withstand up to 216°C.
Spring srl has been the first company in Europe to produce parts in PEKK (ANTERO 800NA), the new thermoplastic of FDM technology (Fused Deposition Modeling). This material is extremely resistant to high temperatures and chemical agents, for these reasons is suitable for components exposed to hydrocarbons and chemical fluids. Many spacecraft parts are realized in Pekk as equipment for shore-based support and to perform functional tests.
Spring srl owns the new professional 3D printing system: F900 certified AICS (Aircraft Interiors Certification Solution) that provides the traceability of the production of components for the aerospace and aeronautic industry.
At present, Spring srl offers an extraordinary service of professional Additive manufacturing, producing monolithic parts by up 1 m 2.
The company is continuously evolving, putting the customer first and providing innovative solutions, qualitatively superior to those that are present in the market.
