Avionics Security Tool
BLDRmetal J-10 For Increased Life of a Custom Tool
On an airplane, to access the in-flight entertainment system technicians use a proprietary screwdriver bit to open and close the access panels. Our customer’s avionics service team initially used a traditionally manufactured solution, but these bits were expensive and proved ineffective as the tool wore out quickly, impacting productivity. The team then turned to 3D printing, looking for both a high level of customization as well as reliability in service.
NanoSteel's BLDRmetal™ J-10 was used to create a 3D printed custom security tool with a significant increase in lifetime. The new security tools lasted a minimum of 5X longer than the previous solutions increasing technician productivity and substantially lowering the risk of downtime in servicing the aircraft.
