Airbus Subsidiary APWorks Receives New Metal-Printing System

April 22, 2016

Additive Industries has delivered its first industrial 3D metal-printing system, MetalFAB1, to Airbus APWorks, a subsidiary of Airbus Group. APWorks will start testing the integrated system and corresponding Additive World software platform for production of industrial parts for its customers in robotics, mechanical engineering, automotive, medical and aerospace markets. As part of the MetalFAB1 Beta program, APWorks will evaluate processes and applications for multiple materials simultaneously to officially validate and certify the process for critical parts.
“Today we are taking an important leap forward in industrializing metal additive-manufacturing technology,” says Joachim Zettler, APWorks managing director. “This will substantially improve part reproducibility and reduce the total cost of 3D-printed parts.”
