BEAMIT Spa, a leading provider of metal additive manufacturing services, and MTU Aero Engines, a world-renowned manufacturer of aero engines, have begun a collaboration to 3D print Ti64 additive manufactured components for the aviation industry.

This partnership marks a significant step forward in the development of advanced manufacturing solutions for aerospace applications. By combining BEAMIT’s expertise in metal additive manufacturing with MTU’s engineering and design capabilities, the two companies aim to deliver high-performance components that are lighter, more durable, and more efficient.

“We are excited to collaborate with MTU Aero Engines, a global leader in the aerospace industry, to push the boundaries of what’s possible with additive manufacturing,” said Mauro Antolotti, President and CEO of BEAMIT Spa. “Our teams will work closely together to design and manufacture Titanium components that meet the rigorous quality and performance standards required for aerospace applications.”

The use of titanium, a high-strength, lightweight alloy, in additive manufacturing has become increasingly popular in the aerospace industry, as it offers superior strength and durability compared to traditional manufacturing methods. The collaboration between BEAMIT and MTU will focus on developing Titanium components that are large enough to meet the needs of the aviation industry, while maintaining the same level of quality and performance.

“We are always looking for ways to push the boundaries of what’s possible with new manufacturing technologies,” said Dr. Karl-Heinz, Senior Manager Additive Manufacturing Technology, at MTU Aero Engines. “This collaboration with BEAMIT will allow us to explore new ways to use additive manufacturing to create innovative, high-performance components that can help improve the efficiency and performance of our aircraft engines.”

The partnership between BEAMIT and MTU Aero Engines is an exciting development for the aerospace industry and highlights the potential for additive manufacturing to transform the way aircraft components are designed and manufactured. With this collaboration, the two companies are poised to create innovative solutions that will help drive the industry forward for years to come.

The collaboration between MTU Aero Engines and BEAMIT on titanium additive manufactured components offers a number of benefits for both companies, including improved performance and efficiency, increased durability, and the potential to drive innovation in the aerospace industry.
