3D printing news roundup: April 22, 2016

Airbus APWorks begins testing its MetalFAB1 metal 3D printing system from Additive Industries, GE Power opens a new Advanced Manufacturing Works in South Carolina, and Canadian 3D printing service Agile Manufacturing acquires a massive SLA 3D printer.

Additive Industries' MetalFAB1 metal 3D printing system

Today was a busy today to end a busy week in the 3D printing universe, with some “big” 3D printing stories from around the world and some particularly exciting news for the aerospace industry. Earlier today,Airbus APWorks put pedal to the metal on its MetalFAB1 3D printing system, supplied by Eindhoven, Netherlands-based Additive Industries, in a deal that marked Additive Industries’ first shipment of the modular metal 3D printing system. “Today we are taking an important leap forward in industrializing metal additive manufacturing technology,” said Joachim Zettler, Managing Director of APWorks. “This will substantially improve part reproducibility and reduce the total cost of 3D printed parts.” APWorks will start testing the integrated system and corresponding Additive World software platform for series production of industrial parts for its customers in robotics, mechanical engineering, automotive, medical technology and aerospace.
