Airbus Group deploying Dassault additive manufacturing platform

Airbus Group, after a two-year benchmarking process, is extending its use of Dassault’s business experience platform to its additive manufacturing programs, integrating design, simulation and production.

Airbus will deploy Dassault’s collaborative design and simulation applications for the additive manufacturing of tooling, prototyping and parts for test flights and for production use on commercial aircraft.

“Numerous projects across Airbus are accelerating the use of additive manufacturing to produce prototypes as well as production components potentially delivering lighter and less expensive parts that meet technological, performance, safety and cost standards,” said Robert Nardini, senior vice president, Engineering Airframe, Airbus.
