Additive Layer Manufacturing: A Revolution in 3D

3D printers have triggered a new industrial revolution, enabling companies to manufacture complex components more easily and at a lower cost than ever before. At the same time, the process opens up new options for lightweight construction techniques. Car manufacturers, Formula 1, and many other sectors are already making use of this technology, and in the aviation industry, entire engine parts and fuselage sections are made by 3D printing.

How artificial intelligence is changing industry – and everyday life.

Artificial intelligence is taking over everyday life. Voice assistants aim to make our lives easier, cars are learning how to drive themselves, and in the not-too-distant future, the first drones could be taking passengers to their destinations – with no pilots whatsoever. What is less well known is how artificial intelligence is becoming more prevalent in industry and manufacturing.

Antennae: Research into greater safety and security in aviation

Antennae used in aircraft must operate reliably under extreme conditions. To achieve this, researchers carry out measurements in anechoic chambers – and, from time to time, even draw inspiration from the natural world.

William Bushnell Stout and his achievements on the way to developing the “Ford Trimotor” passenger aircraft

With revolutionary aircraft designs and engine constructions, William Bushnell laid the groundwork for the triple-engined Ford Trimotor passenger plane. This rugged range of aircraft was very popular with pilots due to its easy to handle flying dynamics and became known as the “Tin Goose” due to its corrugated metal cladding. The engine concept, which was highly unconventional at the time, lived on in many further models in the Ford Trimotor series and bore witness to Stout’s engineering and technical achievements.

expertise4innovations 2018 – An auspicious year for innovation

Under the motto of “expertise4innovations,” ARTS, in collaboration with Airbus and the industrial photographer, Wolfram Schroll, will be launching a new, innovation-focused campaign in the New Year. At the centre of the campaign is the ARTS photographic calendar, which will depict a different outstanding innovation in the space and aviation sectors every month in the form of a fascinating photo captured in Schroll’s lens. We spoke with Mr. Schroll about his art and his motivations.
