This collaboration can support training, technology implementation and scaling of composite additive manufacturing activities.
“The global drone industry has important ramifications for border security, food security, near-mile and last-mile deliveries, healthcare supply chains and more. As with any aerial vehicle, weight reduction is a critical aspect to improve both range and payloads. Composites have been proven to do just that and it’s time the drone industry adopts this as a standard for most of their products. DLE is an excellent global initiative for members to collaborate on product development, market access, consulting and contract manufacturing and we at Sedaxis are thrilled to be able to contribute to these objectives and help grow the safe and sustainable adoption of drones across industries”, said Mr. Vishwanath Godavarty, Business Head, Sedaxis 3D Printing.
“What makes the rapidly emerging drone industry exciting is the unlimited access to new technologies that did not existed couple of decades ago. The industry is driven by young entrepreneurs keen to explore new material and more sustainable material compered to the traditional aerospace industry that is limited to stringing certification processes. Together with Sedaxis we would explore further the application of additive manufacturing for prototyping and small-scale production, while looking into implementation of manufacturing processes for scaleup and mass production”, Dr Ali Jahanshahi, Global Executive Director of DLE.
The DLE is a global network that brings together stakeholders in the drone logistics industry to promote standardization. It serves as a platform for companies to share their expertise to develop products and services with other members.
