Boeing Invests In 3D Printing Company

Boeing Invests In 3D Printing Company 15 August, 2018

Boeing announced investment in Digital Alloys, Inc., that develops high-speed, multi-metal additive manufacturing systems for 3D-printed parts for aerospace and other production applications.

Boeing’s investment in 3D printing will serve on combining multiple metals into each part, which enhances thermal, electrical, magnetic and mechanical properties. The process allows metals like titanium and high-temperature alloys to be 3D-printed for parts that could be used on Boeing products.

Formed in January 2017, Digital Alloys developed a patented 3D-printing approach that avoids the cost and complexity of powder-based systems, and delivers higher resolution than other wire-based 3D-printing techniques.
