In safe hands

We help aerospace companies tap the potential of additive manufacturing (AM) with confidence — through certified manufacturing and specialist consultancy services.

We are an EASA Part 21.G-certified holder of production organization approval (POA), providing additive manufacturing services for flight-ready parts. We also offer manufacturing certified to the standards of Airbus AIPI and EN9100.

We were there during additive manufacturing’s earliest days and have since helped many new applications evolve and succeed. And we will be there to help your ideas fly. Safely.

Certified and certifying

Whether you’re an aircraft manufacturer, supplier, or MRO, we have the accreditations you need to let us make flight-ready parts for you. In addition to existing certified processes, we can help you with the development and qualification of new 3D printing applications and materials.

Aerospace applications of AM

From aesthetic cabin interior parts to functional components, a vast range of aircraft parts can be reliably and economically 3D printed today.

Customization, short series runs, and the potential for further lightweighting of components, means that additive manufacturing can play a key role in manufacturing the aircraft of the future —safely, efficiently, flexibly.
