Aeroswift is a collaboration project between the CSIR-National Laser Centre (NLC) and Aerosud ITC to develop a prototype titanium additive manufacturing (AM) machine tool capable of producing aircraft certifiable parts in a large envelope configuration.  Aeroswift technology is based on the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) defined powder-bed fusion (PBF) process, one of the 7 types of technologies which constitute additive manufacturing. PBF processes allow for the production of very complex parts in metal from metal powder, with very high material utilisation efficiency.
