Airbus chooses Ultimaker 3D printing portfolio

Airbus chooses Ultimaker 3D printing portfolio

February 13, 2019

Ultimaker has announced that it has been selected by Airbus, an aircraft manufacturer, to supply Ultimaker 3D printers, Ultimaker Cura software, and materials to use in its European facilities.

Airbus will mainly use the Ultimaker portfolio for the direct, local production of tools, jigs, and fixtures, and printing lightweight design parts with composite materials.

Ultimaker was selected by Airbus because of its ease of use, reliable results, and open technology, which meets the stringent requirements the aerospace industry has in regard to 3D printed applications, such as jigs and fixtures, non-flying parts and tools. According to Ultimaker, the global services and support it offers “will continuously ensure consistent and high-quality 3D printing results across the different teams”, first in Europe, and later, world-wide. The full portfolio consists of a non-disclosed number of Ultimaker S5 printers and continuous access to Ultimaker Cura software, materials, spare parts, services and add-ons.

According to a recent Frost & Sullivan report, the global 3D printing materials market for the aerospace industry is expected to reach $535.1 million (€472.9 million) by 2024. Airbus has historically embraced 3D printing, and the partnership with Ultimaker further underscores their commitment to further utilising 3D printing within their factories.

Jos Burger, CEO at Ultimaker: “We are very proud that Airbus selected Ultimaker. Strict rules regarding safety and certifications can make manufacturing and model-making workflows complicated, especially for engineers in the aerospace industry. I am glad that our certified solution and the possibility to print with composite materials, enables these engineers to keep innovating. The team at Airbus can fully rely on our dedicated global sales and partner network for full support.”
