Arconic Strengthens Its 3D Printing Collaboration With Airbus

Arconic to Supply 3D Printed Nickel and Titanium Parts for Airbus Airplanes Under Two New Agreements

  • Builds on agreement announced earlier this year to supply 3D printed titanium fuselage and engine pylon components for Airbus commercial aircraft
  • Expands Arconic’s position on high-growth platforms, including the A320
  • Underscores Arconic’s leadership position in 3D printing for aerospace

NEW YORK — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 13, 2016 — Arconic (NYSE: ARNC), a global technology, engineering and advanced manufacturing leader, has entered into two agreements to supply Airbus 3D printed metal parts for the airplane maker’s commercial aircraft. Arconic will supply 3D printed components made from high temperature nickel superalloys, and 3D printed titanium airframe parts under two separate agreements.

“We’re proud to deepen our partnership with Airbus through these agreements,” said Klaus Kleinfeld, Chairman and CEO of Arconic. “Airbus’s confidence in our additive manufacturing capabilities is grounded in Arconic’s comprehensive strengths—from aerospace know-how to metals powder production and product qualification expertise. We are pleased to support our customers and pave the way to the future of aerospace manufacturing.”

Arconic will supply 3D printed ducting components made of high-temperature nickel superalloys for the A320 family of aircraft. Advanced nickel superalloys offer superior heat resistance for these components, which flow hot air from the aero engine to other parts of the airframe.

Under a second deal, Arconic will supply 3D printed titanium airframe brackets, also for the A320 platform. Arconic expects to deliver the first parts under both agreements in the second quarter of 2017.

These agreements build on Arconic’s April 2016 deal with Airbus for 3D printed titanium fuselage and engine pylon components. That agreement established Arconic as an innovation partner to Airbus in the fast-growing metal 3D printing space.

Arconic’s comprehensive capabilities, from materials science and additive manufacturing expertise, to aerospace parts qualification experience and supply chain management are helping to grow our partnership with Airbus. These latest deals will draw on Arconic’s full range of 3D printing technology capabilities, including laser powder bed and electron beam processes.

Further details on these agreements with Airbus were not disclosed.

Arconic has been a leader in the aerospace industry since the dawn of aviation. Today, it is a differentiated supplier across the aerospace industry, with leading positions on every major western aircraft and jet engine platform, underpinned by market leadership in aerospace structures, jet engine and industrial gas turbine airfoils and aerospace fasteners.
