Boeing Could Cut Cost Of 787 By $3M Through 3-D Printing Deal

11 April 2017
Reuters reports that 3-D printing company Norsk Titanium AS said Monday that its technology could help The Boeing Company shave $2 million to $3 million from the cost of each new 787 Dreamliner through savings on expensive traditional forging and machining. For more than a year, Norsk has worked with Boeing to develop four 3-D printed titanium parts for the 787. Norsk Vice President of Marketing Chip Yates said that the company expects FAA certification of its processes later this year, which will “open up the floodgates” and enable Norsk to print thousands of different 787 parts without obtaining separate approvals.
