Rostec received a license for serial 3D printing of aircraft components

The license allows serial production and testing of components for civil airliners, helicopters and engines.

According to the corporation, TsAT became the first Russian enterprise to confirm its competence in mass industrial 3D printing in the interests of the aviation industry.

Thanks to industrial 3D printing, it is possible to reduce the production time of individual components from six months to three weeks. In addition, the components manufactured by the additive method are distinguished by a lower weight while maintaining their functional properties. This increases the payload and improves other aircraft performance.

To date, the enterprise has mastered the production of 450 types of parts. TsAT has a large fleet of 3D printing equipment in Russia – 41 units of additive and auxiliary equipment.
