With cabin interior parts experiencing frequent wear and tear from use, our airworthy components are designed to be sturdy, durable and aesthetically pleasing.
Cutting Lead Time for Aircraft-on-Ground Situations
Through AM technology, we cut down the delivery time for a customer’s faulty End Cap Cover from over 3 months to 15 days. Once the part was identified, it took our engineers only 3 days to fully re-engineer it and develop a prototype for our customer to physically evaluate the solution. Following that, the part was printed with engineering-grade plastic using our Fortus printer to satisfy the aircraft’s airworthiness requirements.
FAA-Approved 3D printed Arm Caps
We were awarded the Parts Manufacturer Approval by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for our high-quality 3D printed economy seat arm caps. We are now certified to produce and install these replacement parts - re-engineered to be more durable - on aircraft for customers who require FAA certification.
As the leading MRO service provider using AM to support customer needs, our portfolio of certified AM solutions has been growing steadily.
