Boeing company just recently increased its already large investment in additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is becoming the future of manufacturing. 3D printing is a process in which materials are meshed together using a computer software and then printed creating a three-dimensional object. 3D printing is being used in many different fields to lower the cost of production and shorten lead times. Boeing is showing a huge interest in Morf3D, a 3D printing company with a focus in the metal-based engineering field. Morf3D has technology that has allowed them to create stronger and lighter aircraft components. The company has a mission to provide innovative solutions to sustain eco-systems while solving complex design and manufacturing challenges that fully benefit today’s world. Morf3D has already created many products for Boeing which include aluminum and titanium components for helicopters and satellites.
After uploading a picture this past March on Twitter, Boeing revealed the first Section 41 (Boeing’s internal designation for both the nose and forward fuselage) had entered their Everett factory’s 40-27 bay. The first 777-9 version of the 777X family line that enters fuselage assembly will be utilized to static ground testing. Inside the 40-27 bay, Section 41 will connect to both the center and aft fuselage sections. A new process will be used, which was first introduced almost 2 years ago on the 777-300ER and 777-200LR programs. Choosing not to load the assemblies into a rotating tool fixture, Boeing instead has chosen to pair the 777X by utilizing the fuselage automated upgrade build process, or FAUB. During this process, sections are placed into moveable cradles and paired together by robots for drilling and fastening.
The Aerospace industry is a very competitive and large industry. This keeps manufacturers fighting to be on top by increasing productivity and constantly making improvements. Aircrafts are very intricate and are very reliable on products, especially fasteners which hold the planes together, to keep passengers safe always. A single aircraft has usually around 2 million fasteners, placed in small and cramped spaces. This makes it difficult for manufacturers to tighten these fasteners to the needed amount. That is where these custom fastener heads come in huge. They allow the manufacturer to tighten these fasteners in a simpler manner, which in turn creates a more efficient production allowing more aircrafts to be made with the highest level of reliability and safety.

For instance, SKF will be launching their new sealing resolutions for motorcycles or other two-wheel vehicles. This new sealing resolution will allow for a smoother and more relaxed ride for the rider.
Not only do fasteners need to meet certain requirements, but so do the fastener coatings. They must be environmentally safe. Environments requirements for fastener coatings include; ELV, REACH, and RoHS. ELV (End of Life Vehicle), REACH (EU Regulation for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals), and RoHS (Restriction of the Use of Hazardous substances) all contribute to keeping the customers and environment safe.
