In response to aerospace and defense industry demand for selective laser sintering materials for direct digital manufacturing of non-structural aircraft components, Paramount has developed laser sintering processes with high-temperature, electrostatic-discharge (ESD) compliant laser sintering materials that have heat deflection temperatures in excess of 320°C and are chemical resistant, non-out gassing, electrically and thermally conductive.
“High temperature laser sintering is breakthrough technology and offers significant advantages for manufacturing across all industries, particularly aerospace and defense applications where high temperature and electrically conductive materials are critical factors,” said Jim Williams, president and CEO of Paramount Industries.
Paramount Industries is the recipient of a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II award from the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and develops selective materials and processes for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program, as well as many other aerospace, defense and medical applications.
“We are thrilled to offer R&D expertise for direct digital manufacturing of aerospace parts and components for projects such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and the Honeywell T-Hawk,” says Williams.
The company prototyped and manufactured key components for the T-Hawk, an unmanned micro air vehicle (UAV) designed to enhance mission effectiveness, provide situational awareness for US combat troops.
