Carpenter Technology and IAI to produce commercial aircraft additive parts

These will be the first metal AM parts approved for commercial use in Israel

Carpenter Technology Corporation, which is emerging as a market leading AM metal powder supplier, and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) signed a collaboration to produce additively manufactured components for a serial production commercial aircraft.

IAI Ltd. is Israel’s largest aerospace and defense company and a globally recognized technology and innovation leader, specializing in developing and manufacturing advanced, state-of-the-art systems for air, space, sea, land, cyber and homeland security. Since 1953, the company has provided advanced technology solutions to government and commercial customers worldwide. IAI also designs and manufactures business jets and aerostructures, performs overhaul and maintenance on commercial aircraft and converts passenger aircraft to refueling and cargo configurations.

“Together, Carpenter Additive and IAI are pioneering the use of this technology for new platforms and applications,” said Marshall Akins, Carpenter Technology’s Vice President, Aerospace Markets.  “This collaboration speaks to the trust major aerospace entities like IAI have in Carpenter Additive’s capabilities, and to IAI’s forward-leaning vision to rapidly realize the benefits of this technology.”

This partnership will result in IAI’s first metallic additively-produced parts, which are expected to provide significant manufacturing benefits and lay the groundwork for future design improvements and enhancements.  IAI is working closely with Israel’s Civil Aviation Authority for approval of the parts, which when accomplished will represent the first time this technology has been approved for commercial use in Israel.

Carpenter Technology, through its Carpenter Additive business unit, is producing the parts and providing supporting information to assist with their approval. “We are pleased to see the fruits of our development efforts leading towards the certification of a flight-worthy metallic additively manufactured part,” says Zvi Genisher, VP & General Manager, Engineering & Development Division, IAI Aviation Group. “We look forward to strengthening our collaboration with Carpenter Additive.”

Both companies are exhibiting at the Paris Air Show. Visitors can find Carpenter Technology’s booth in Hall 5, E232, and IAI’s stand at chalet #208A.

Since 2002, I have built up extensive experience as a technology journalist, market analyst and consultant for the additive manufacturing industry. Born in Milan, Italy, I spent 12 years in the United States, where I received my Bachelor of Arts undergraduate degree. As a journalist covering the tech industry - especially the videogame industry - for over 10 years, I began covering the AM industry specifically in 2013, as blogger. In 2016 I co-founded London-based 3D Printing Business Media Ltd. (now 3dpbm) which operates in marketing, editorial, and market analysis & consultancy services for the additive manufacturing industry. 3dpbm publishes 3D Printing Business Directory, the largest global directory of companies related to 3DP, and leading news and insights websites 3D Printing Media Network and Replicatore. I am also a Senior Analyst for leading US-based firm SmarTech Analysis focusing on the additive manufacturing industry and relative vertical markets.
