    Schiebel, March 12, 2020 - Vienna – Schiebel further enhances its production capabilities by investing in a state-of-the-art EOS M 400-4 metal 3D printer for additive manufacturing.

    Schiebel continuously develops its Camcopter S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS) by integrating the latest technologies and further improving its production capabilities. Schiebel’s new 3D printer is being utilised to produce complex titanium components of the S-100 even more effectively, increasing design freedom and enabling valuable weight savings.

    The 3D printer is being operated at Schiebel’s flagship production facility in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. The facility is currently being doubled in size to meet the growing demand for Schiebel’s market-leading Camcopter S-100 UAS and is set to be completed mid-2020.

    Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of the Schiebel Group, said: “Schiebel prides itself on always being at the edge of aerial innovation. Being able to make use of additive manufacturing opens a plethora of opportunities to further develop the Camcopter S-100. Every future gram we save on the aircraft allows us to further increase endurance or payload capacity.”

    Schiebel’s Camcopter S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS) is an operationally proven capability for military and civilian applications. The Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) UAS requires no prepared area or supporting equipment to enable launch and recovery. It operates by day and by night, under adverse weather conditions, with a beyond line-of-sight capability out to 200 km / 108 nm, over land and sea. Its carbon fiber and titanium fuselage provides capacity for a wide range of payload/endurance combinations up to a service ceiling of 5,500 m / 18,000 ft.

    In a typical configuration, the Camcopter S-100 carries a 34-kg / 75-lbs payload up to 10 hours and is powered with AVGas or JP-5 heavy fuel. High-definition payload imagery is transmitted to the control station in real time. In addition to its standard GPS waypoint or manual navigation, the S-100 can successfully operate in environments where GPS is not available, with missions planned and controlled via a simple point-and-click graphical user interface. The high-tech unmanned helicopter is backed by Schiebel’s excellent customer support and training services.
