CRDM works with major aerospace organisations to leverage the advantages of
Additive Manufacturing. We have worked on projects ranging from metal satellite
components to UAV flight parts in both test and development phases through to
series production.

We will bring your CAD projects to life by prototyping a variety of aerospace
components in plastics and metals. Using the latest additive manufacturing
processes – we can build parts in 40μm (micron layers) – a quicker and lower cost
alternative to one-off manufacturing using traditional techniques such as machining
from solid.

Recent advances in making metal parts allows us to manufacture components that
are impossible to make using traditional engineering methods; complex channels,
voids and 3D structures are easily included.

Total process material use is substantially reduced as only material required for parts
is used – no swarf.

Examples of our experience

  • Building trial and test parts
  • Instrumentation fixtures, jigs and assembly aids
  • Low volume production parts
  • Retrofit components for refurbishment

With strict timelines for interior maintenance and refurbishment programmes when
aircraft on ground and OEM parts with long lead times, often up to 90 days and
parts frequently turning out to be obsolete. CRDM can offer a number of solutions:

  • No engineering drawings or CAD required. We can scan parts and produce
  • CAD for manufacture
  • V0 rated fire retardant materials
  • Low volume production with additive manufacturing or mould tooling
  • Fast turnaround within days
  • Accredited by many leading aerospace companies

How we can help you

We help you cut down the time spent on product development path by manufacturing
prototypes and low volume components from just 3-4 working days – saving weeks
compared to traditional routes.

We can help you regardless where you are in your development – from producing a
one-off prototype item to small run, high-end parts.

Quickparts UK make a model Rolls Royce engine for Paris Air Show

CRDM Rolls Royce model engine

In April 2013, Rolls Royce approached Quickparts UK to make a scale-working model of their Electric Distributed Propulsion engine for the Paris Air Show. It offered Quickparts UK a great opportunity to showcase our large in house capacities of SLA resin builds, SLS nylon builds, finishing, painting and assembly work as well as associated fabricated and machined parts. Additive Manufacturing offered a solution to … Continue reading
