At the end of last year, Etihad Airways Engineering announced new and extended partnerships with two additive manufacturing (AM) vendors as it looks to enhance its Maintenance, Overhaul and Repair (MRO) services.
The company formed a strategic partnership with EOS, while also installing a BigRep One machine. Both developments will help to enable the aerospace company to additively manufacture aircraft parts and tooling at its Abu Dhabi facility.
The EOS alliance was finalised at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which is sponsored by Etihad Airways, this past weekend. It will initially see the qualification of machine, process and materials in accordance with aviation regulatory requirements, and after a structured selection process, EOS' polymer 3D printing technology and systems will be harnessed to produce suitable cabin interior components. The partnership may extend to include EOS' metal technology further down the road.
