LIFT Launches 787 Dreamliner Seating in Continued Collaboration with Boeing

"We are always looking at the latest technologies to drive cost reduction, performance, and value to our customers Norsk Titanium's RPD capability fits the bill in a new and creative way", added VP of Airplane Materials and Structures, John Byrne.

Airbus, Boeing and defense contractor Raytheon have all experimented with additive manufacturing to develop new components.

It noted that Norsk marketing Vice President Chip Yates expected "tons" of 787 parts would eventually be printed.

Norsk Titanium, a Norwegian firm, confirmed Monday the production order for 3-D printed structural titanium components for the Dreamliner 787.

In 2015, General Electric revealed that it had completed a multi-year project to print a working jet engine at its Additive Development Center outside Cincinnati. He said Norsk expects the agency to sign off on the material properties and production process for those parts later this year, which will "open the floodgates" and allow the company to produce vastly more parts for the Dreamliner.

However it seems that very near future should be ever get to fly on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, know that there will be some components that are made as a result of 3D printing.

Speaking to Sport Witness , Robson - a former No7 at United - said: "I know that Sanchez seems to be a bit unsettled at Arsenal ". Antonio Conte has again refused to comment on reports linking Alexis Sanchez with a move to Chelsea from Arsenal .

It is rather convenient to call this proccess 3D printing becaouse what it basically is doing is laying layers of metal on top of each other, and that is what 3D printing is basically.

Titanium is more expensive than the aluminum used in most aircraft.

While it has not quite yet become a household item, 3D printers continue to change the way we think about manufacturing all kinds of things. "It is an honour to earn FAA approval for these structural parts".

Boeing and Norsk Titanium said they were required to undergo "a rigorous testing program with FAA certification deliverables".

Boeing will be the first commercial airline in the world to use components produced from Norsk Titanium's Rapid Plasma Deposition process.

Norsk said that initially it will print in Norway, but is building up a 67,000-square-foot (6,220-square-meter) facility in Plattsburgh in upstate NY, where it aims to have nine printers running by year-end.
