Norsk Titanium to Deliver 3D-Printed Structural Titanium Components to Boeing

May 3, 2017

Norsk Titanium AS has received a production purchase order for 3D-printed structural titanium components from Boeing—the 787 Dreamliner soon will become the first commercial airplane to fly with certified additive-manufactured (AM) titanium parts in structural applications. The parts will be produced using Norsk’s proprietary wire-based Rapid Plasma Deposition process. To certify the structural components, Boeing and Norsk Titanium undertook a rigorous testing program, with FAA-certification deliverables completed this past February.
