Partnership Advances 3D Printing for Aircraft Cabins

Materialise NV, Proponent, and Stirling Dynamics have signed a letter of intent to provide certified 3D printed cabin solutions for aircraft. This collaboration aims to reduce the barriers to adopting additive manufacturing in the aerospace industry. Stirling Dynamics, part of Expleo, joins the existing partnership between Materialise and Proponent established in 2021. The partnership’s goal is to offer design, production, and distribution of cabin solutions for the aerospace aftermarket.

Stirling Dynamics, as an EASA 21.J-certified Aerospace Design Organization, will contribute to the development of designs for 3D printed interior cabin parts, including complete aircraft documentation and installation instructions. Materialise, with its certified production capabilities as a 21.G POA, and Proponent’s role as a leading independent aerospace distributor, complete this partnership. This trio aims to simplify the integration of 3D printed solutions for OEMs and aircraft operators.

The partnership focuses on accelerating the adoption of 3D printing for cabin parts in the aerospace sector, targeting OEMs, airlines, and MROs.

Already, several cabin repair solutions have been successfully developed between Stirling Dynamics and Materialise, solving specific issues the customers face in their cabins. Proponent can leverage their OEM relationships to develop OEM-endorsed and certified solutions, making them available to operators worldwide that face similar issues.

“With Stirling Dynamics joining our partnership, we can offer our OEM partners qualified solutions that can easily be incorporated into their aftermarket supply chain,” said Erik Krol, Proponent Vice President Strategic Business Units.

“Through this partnership, OEMs can deliver spare parts and repairs in an extremely cost-effective way, ultimately benefiting the airlines and MROs.”
