The aerospace supplier Aircraft Philipp Übersee GmbH & CO. KG based in Germany with subsidiaries in Austria, Israel and India further broadens its technology spectrum in additive manufacturing (AM) with 3DMP (3D Metal Print). Aircraft Philipp has purchased an arc 605, GEFERTEC's top model. "This machine is capable of producing work parts of up to two tons in mass using AM, thereby responding to user needs for considerably larger components in future, based on the new industry standard 3DMP," said a company spokesperson.

"Developing new aircrafts nowadays requires a radical change in thinking with regards to meeting climate targets and resource-optimized production. Applying this method will lead to improved buy-to-fly ratios and will, thus, contribute a great deal to economic and ecologic efficiency in future," said Rolf Philipp, Founder and Owner of Aircraft Philipp Übersee. Tobias Röhrich, CEO of GEFERTEC, said, "We are delighted that Aircraft Philipp Übersee has set its goal towards manufacturing ever greater structural components in the additive fashion. Exactly here lies the special strength and efficiency of 3DMP, which is why it has developed into the new industry standard."

The GEFERTEC arc605 will be installed at the Übersee premises in Bavaria.
