In addition to its extension, the MRO contract between the 3D printing specialist and the manufacturer has been extended to all Airbus aircraft.
The honeymoon between Stratasys and Airbus continues. The 3D printing specialist announced that it has officially extended its contract with Airbus for the production of 3D-printed polymer cabin interior components. While the initial contract focused on the production of parts for the Airbus A350, this contract extension expands the range of printed parts for Airbus to include maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) spare and replacement parts for the manufacturer's other aircraft types (Airbus A300, Airbus A320, Airbus A330, Airbus A340), in addition to the A350.
Stratasys has been working with Airbus on the A350 since 2014 and had announced in mid-2016 that its solutions would be standardized for the long-haul jet supply chain. Specifically, this involved the certification of ULTEM 9085 resin to meet the manufacturer's requirements. At the 2019 Paris Air Show, Stratasys also announced a completely new range of cabin interior parts and a contract with Boom Supersonic.
