Le Bourget, FRANCE, June 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carpenter Technology Corporation (CRS) and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) today announced their collaboration to produce additively manufactured components for a serial production commercial aircraft. This collaboration will result in IAI’s first metallic additively-produced parts, which are expected to provide significant manufacturing benefits and lay the groundwork for future design improvements and enhancements. IAI is working closely with Israel’s Civil Aviation Authority for approval of the parts, which when accomplished will represent the first time this technology has been approved for commercial use in Israel. Carpenter Technology, through its Carpenter Additive business unit, is producing the parts and providing supporting information to assist with their approval.
“Together, Carpenter Additive and IAI are pioneering the use of this technology for new platforms and applications,” said Marshall Akins, Carpenter Technology’s Vice President, Aerospace Markets. “This collaboration speaks to the trust major aerospace entities like IAI have in Carpenter Additive’s capabilities, and to IAI’s forward leaning vision to rapidly realize the benefits of this technology.”
"We are pleased to see the fruits of our development efforts leading towards the certification of a flightworthy metallic additively manufactured part," says Zvi Genisher, VP & General Manager, Engineering & Development Division, IAI Aviation Group. "We look forward to strengthening our collaboration with Carpenter Additive."
Visitors to the International Paris Air Show can visit Carpenter Technology’s booth, which is located at Hall 5, E232, to learn more about additive manufacturing, or IAI’s chalet #208A.
