Pratt & Whitney marks milestone with 3D printing for aircraft engine MRO


American aerospace manufacturer Pratt & Whitney and Singapore-based engineering company ST Engineering have announced the industrialization of a process for 3D printing aero-engine components for the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of commercial engines.


The partners also unveiled the first application using the process, an aero-engine part that is expected to be fully integrated into the repair process by mid-2020 at Component Aerospace Singapore, Pratt & Whitney’s repair specialist in the region.


Pratt & Whitney and partners at Component Aerospace Singapore and ST Engineering’s Land Systems division have been exploring the use of 3D printing for aircraft engine MRO in a bid to achieve faster and more flexible repair solutions for Pratt & Whitney’s engines. The 3D printed part in question will be used in a fuel system component for one of Pratt & Whitney’s engine models. Each partner contributed to its development and industrialization: ST Engineering provided its […]
