Estonian firm Magnetic MRO is to use additively manufactured parts in its provision of maintenance services.
Yesterday (May 5) the MRO announced that it had successfully printed its first prototype interior parts and that is planning to expand into producing metal templates in future.
“We strongly believe that additive manufacturing will help reduce inefficiencies existing in production cycles for certain groups of aircraft parts globally,” said Risto Mäeots, COO of Magnetic MRO.
“Having started with interior parts, we are also evaluating 3D printing benefits for other in-house capabilities, such as structural engineering and sheet metal templates, as well as OEM prototyping. Metal printing is also the natural next technological step which we will take over the next 18 months.”
