Complex Control Components

Challenges when designing ECS ducting can stem from the complexity of component configuration, geometrics and weight requirements. A powerful solution for overcoming these difficulties is additive manufacturing. AM produces strong, complex geometries quickly utilizing exceptional FST-rated materials like Nylon 12 FR and ULTEM® 9085 to ensure superior strength durability and heat resistant parts.
