Etihad unit opens first 3D manufacturing factory

Etihad Engineering has collaborated with EOS and BigRep, to open the region’s first 3D manufacturing facility with approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The laboratory, located at the Etihad Engineering facility adjacent to Abu Dhabi International Airport, features two approved industrial 3D printers.

 

Etihad Engineering, together with its partner EOS, received one of the first approvals from EASA for 3D printing using powder-bed fusion technology which will be used to design, produce and certify additively manufactured parts for the aircraft cabin of the future.

 

BigRep ONE, one of the largest, serial-built industrial thermoplastic extrusion 3D printers from our vendor partner, BigRep, is designed for manufacturing large parts, jigs and fixtures as well as moulds – on site and on demand.
