Rolls-Royce has added an AM system produced by SLM Solutions AG to advance AM technology for aerospace components. Additionally, GKN Aerospace has commissioned a second large-scale pilot production facility at the DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). It is reported to be “the largest pilot production cell of its kind in the world.”

Carpenter Technology Corporation and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) are collaborating to produce AM components for production commercial aircraft. Carpenter Additive and IAI are using AM technology for new platforms and applications.
