Manufacturer Selected by Airbus to 3-D Print Polymer Serial Flying A350 XWB Parts



Additive manufacturing takes flight with 3-D printed bracketing for the Airbus A350, manufactured by Stratasys Direct Manufacturing with FDM Technology and ULTEM 9085 resin.

Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, a subsidiary of Stratasys Ltd. and a 3-D printing and advanced manufacturing service provider, will produce 3-D printed polymer parts for use on Airbus A350 XWB aircraft. The company will print non-structural parts, such as brackets and other parts used for system installation, on Stratasys FDM production 3-D printers using ULTEM 9085 material. "The project will help Airbus achieve greater supply chain flexibility and improve cost competitiveness, while leveraging on reduced material consumption and waste," said an Airbus spokesperson.

Stratasys Direct Manufacturing's 3-D printing capacity and infrastructure allow printing and shipping parts on demand to Airbus, bringing the expected reactivity, tighter turnaround times and lower inventory costs.

"We are proud to work with Airbus to continually advance 3-D printing in aerospace applications," said Joe Allison, CEO of Stratasys Direct Manufacturing. "Our expertise in building parts ready for installation on the aircraft, along with our unique process controls and quality procedures, will allow Airbus to improve competitiveness leveraging on the technical benefits of 3-D printing."
