ADDere Provides GKN Aerospace with the Industry’s Largest Additive Manufacturing System

GKN 2.5m Titanium Additive PartBuilding large-scale titanium parts for aerospace applications requires the largest metal 3D printer available. Because of the demanding nature of aerospace components and their previous experience with ADDere, GKN Aerospace commissioned ADDere to design and construct a custom additive manufacturing cell that could manufacture large-scale titanium parts 5 meters (16 feet) long by 2 meters (6.5 feet) wide. Previously, the largest component that GKN had 3D printed in titanium was 2.5 meters (8 feet) long.

The system ADDere built is the largest laser-wire Directed Energy Deposition (DED) cell known in the aerospace industry, allowing for defense and commercial aviation replacement parts manufactured using more sustainable and efficien
