3-D Printed Aerospace Parts Undergo Engineering Analysis

The first shipment of Airbus test parts manufactured by Norsk Titanium AS’s patented Rapid Plasma Deposition (RPD) process has been received and finish machined by Premium Aerotec. 

The grade Ti-6Al-4V sample parts, for which Premium Aerotec holds design authority, are undergoing stringent engineering analysis and the results will be used for the qualification program in a joint approach between Norsk Titanium and Premium Aerotec as the next step to develop full industrial technology maturity.

“We ordered samples of two of our proprietary Airbus A350 XWB parts and were pleasantly surprised how quickly they arrived and how efficiently we were able to machine Norsk’s near-net-shape RPD components into finished test pieces,” says Dr. Joachim Schmidt, head of parts production at Premium Aerotec’s plant in Varel, Germany.

“We turned Aerotec’s 3D CATIA files into flyable titanium parts in a matter of weeks under a cost reduction effort that could ultimately save Airbus $2 million to $3 million per aircraft,” claims Norsk Titanium Chief Commercial Officer Chet Fuller.

Premium Aerotec supplies fuselage shells and sections, wing components, floor structures, the pressure bulkhead, and the main landing gear attachment for the Airbus A350 XWB, and supplies the pressure bulkhead and titanium components for the composite Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
