Airbus installs 3D printed titanium bracket

Airbus, whose North American office is located in Virginia, has completed the installation of a 3D printed titanium bracket on an in-series production A350 XWB aircraft.

The 3D printed bracket is part of the aircraft pylon, the segment of a plane attaching jet engines to the wings.

As of December 2016, the company has also been developing Sciaky’s electron beam additive manufacturing (EBAM) for use in large, flight-integral parts.
