Additive manufacturing, which promises lighter, more complex airframe and engine components produced cheaper and faster, is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after technologies in aerospace manufacturing. Arconic is playing a leading role in making that promise a reality. Using our comprehensive capabilities in a variety of metals-based additive technologies, including direct, indirect and hybrid techniques, we have developed metal 3D printed parts that have already orbited Earth on the Orion spacecraft—and are now taking flight on Airbus commercial aircraft.
