BLT hopes to realize positive communication and deep cooperation with more European and transnational enterprises.
After the forum, the Senior Vice President of Airbus led a delegation to visit the exhibition booth of BLT, in order to have a deep understanding of the application of BLT’s metal 3D printing technology in the aerospace field. BLT was under the spotlight of the exhibition with its metal 3D printing of large-size components with a diameter of 600mm. The exhibits with a fillet of only 80mm and the skillful application of lightweight design with topological structure brought more technical inspirations for Airbus.
