First Industrial-Scale 3D Printing Plant for Aerospace Metals Under Construction

Norway-based additive manufacturing (AM) company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. Located in New York, the plant will begin with 20 Norsk Titanium machines that will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts. The company has made a name by developing an AM technology to lower the cost of aerospace-grade, structural components made of titanium. Compared to components made with traditional forging and billet techniques, components made with its patented Rapid Plasma Deposition (RPD) technology are equally strong, but cost 30% to 75% less. They also have less material waste and require less finishing, according to the company fact sheet . The State of New York has funded the purchase of 20 Norsk Titanium industrial production-g...
