Spirit AeroSystems and Norsk Titanium Announce Qualification

July 30, 2018

Spirit AeroSystems, based in Wichita, KS and Norsk Titanium US Inc. (NTi), based in Plattsburg, NY, have agreed to qualify Spirit's first additive-manufactured (AM), titanium, structural component for the Boeing 787. 

This qualification will validate NTi's production and industrialization processes, integrate Spirit's work scope of finalizing AM-produced parts and verify material and final part conformity to requirements.  

 "Spirit has had a long relationship with Norsk Titanium, and this part will be our first additive structural titanium component incorporated into a commercial airplane program," says Ron Rabe, Spirit AeroSystems senior vice president of fabrication and supply chain management.

"I am very proud of the Norsk Titanium team and this accomplishment,” says Mike Canario, CEO of Norsk Titanium. “It represents years of technology development.”
