Arconic and Airbus achieve 3D printing first

Airbus and Arconic have achieved a 3D printing first – the installation of a 3D printed titanium bracket on an Airbus commercial aircraft, the A350 XWB. Arconic is 3D printing these parts for Airbus’s newest wide-body aircraft at Arconic’s additive manufacturing facility in Austin, Texas. “Arconic is proud to partner with Airbus to advance aerospace additive manufacturing,” said Jeremy Halford, president of Arconic Titanium and Engineered Products. “Our comprehensive capabilities, from materials science leadership to qualification expertise, helped make this achievement possible. We look forward to continuing to advance the art of the possible in additive for aerospace.”
