Certified Manufacturing for Aerospace

Whether you’re an aircraft manufacturer, supplier, or MRO, our accreditations mean we can produce flight-ready parts for you. In addition to existing certified processes, we can also help you develop and qualify new 3D printing applications and materials. 

Why work with us?  

On-hand expertise  

Aerospace OEMs, MROs, eVTOLs, and tier suppliers worldwide trust us for our manufacturing services and software. Our team can help you manage exacting project specifications, printing requirements, and assembly needs, and can advise you on design and material choices. 

Certified processes and materials 

We’re certified for the 3D printing processes you need, so you don’t have to be. As an EASA Part 21.G-certified holder of Production Organization Approval (POA), we can make flight-ready parts for you to Form 1 accreditation. We also offer manufacturing to EN 9100 and Airbus AIPI standards. 

Historical performance data 

Our dynamically updated data lake gives you access to performance data from hundreds of aerospace builds, including parameters like part density, tensile strength, and elastic modulus. With a clear view on process repeatability and reliability, you’re equipped to make informed decisions. 

Process documentation  

We can support you in ensuring every project is documented to perfection. As well as First Article Inspection, CoCs, and SLAs on all manufacturing projects, we can provide additional documentation on request, like supplier qualifications and Certifications of Airworthiness for specific technology/material combinations.  

Applied R&D support 

In addition to existing certified processes, we can also support you in developing and qualifying new 3D printing applications and materials. We were the first to qualify selective laser sintering with Airbus and can help you onboard new technologies to match your applications.

Ultem 9085/Ultem 9085CG

Why Ultem 9085? 

  • Strong, lightweight, and flame-retardant 
  • Superior mechanical performance and strength-to-weight ratio 
  • Good chemical resistance 

Certifications 

  • Passes heat release, flame, smoke, and toxicity tests (UL 94 V-0, FAR 25.853) 
  • Available in an Airbus-certified grade (Ultem 9085CG), according to AIPI 03-02-029 
  • Available in an Airbus cabin interior finish according to AIPI 05-02-006 

Quick facts 

  • Produced with fused deposition modeling (FDM) technology 
  • FDM requires support structures while printing, meaning unfinished parts typically have a rough surface texture 
  • Available finishes include smoothing, painting, and coating 
  • Maximum part dimensions: 914 x 610 x 914 mm 
Four 3D-printed spare parts made of flame-retardant polyamide are shown: one is black and three are white. All four parts are commonly seen in aircraft cabin interiors. These parts are manufactured for 328 Support Services.
A series of 3D-printed repair kits with EASA 21.J quality labels. The kit contains small white plastic parts made of flame-retardant polyamide, designed by Expleo. These parts are used to replace commonly broken latches on Boeing 737 dado panels.
