Abstract
Being in the leading position of non-conventional welding technologies R&D in China, Beijing Aeronautical Manufacturing Technology Research Institute (BAMTRI) has been involved in a number of research programs relating to generalized additive manufacturing based on welding/joining technologies. Such research programs and projects provide aviation industry a rapid response in design and trial manufacture of new products. BAMTRI, founded in 1957, is a comprehensive research institute specializing in the research of advanced aeronautical manufacturing technologies and development of related equipment as well as promoting such technologies and equipment to industrial applications. Based on its superiority in electron beam, laser beam, plasma & ion beam processing technologies, the National Key Laboratory for Power Beam Processes was established at BAMTRI in 1993. Power beam welding/joining/processing and solid state welding/joining are the two most important R and D areas at BAMTRI to solve the «unique» and «critical» problems in modern aeronautical manufacturing as well as to establish the technical basis for generalized additive manufacturing, providing frontier technologies and related machinery to aviation enterprises in China. 10 Figures.
