Liebherr-Aerospace has begun printing 3D components for Airbus.

 

Following approval from the European aircraft manufacturer, first equipment fit for flight that Liebherr will be supplying will be nose landing gear brackets for the Airbus A350 XWB. 

Liebherr has collaborated with Airbus over the past few years and development of additive manufacturing is advancing at a fast pace.  These brackets will be the first ever introduced Airbus systems parts to be qualified for printed titanium.

“This milestone shows that we are a recognized pioneer and trusted partner in the aerospace world,” said Josef Gropper, managing director and COO of Liebherr-Aerospace & Transportation SAS. “We are planning to produce more complex components in the future in order to fully utilise the potential of additive manufacturing.”
