GKN Aerospace and Materialise Partner to Propel Additive Manufacturing in Aviation

GKN Aerospace and Materialise have signed a letter of intent to advancing the research, design and production of polymer additively manufactured (AM) parts for the aviation industry. The LOI wrepresents an extension of their collaboration. Materialise has supplied polymer AM to GKN Aerospace since 2015 and supported the delivery of the additively manufactured wingtip for Eviation’s Alice, an all-electric aircraft, which made its maiden flight in 2022.

The collaboration ranges from prototyping to the production of functional and flight-critical parts. In particular, the partnership will focus on electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.
