Arconic Wins Two Contracts to Supply Airbus With 3D Printed Metal Aircraft Parts

Arconic, an engineering firm, said Tuesday it has won two orders to supply Airbus 3D with printed metal parts for the airplane maker’s commercial aircraft.

Arconic will supply 3D printed components made from high temperature nickel superalloys, and 3D printed titanium airframe parts under two separate agreements, it said on Tuesday.

Arconic expects to deliver the first parts under both agreements in the second quarter of 2017. Further details weren’t disclosed. ARNC was down 2% recently.
