Essentium has announced its latest contract to drive the development and deployment of advanced additive manufacturing within the US Air Force (USAF). The goal is to help develop solutions for applications in tooling, ground support, maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO), and flight-certified parts for military aircraft and ground vehicles through both the USAF and the National Guard Bureau (NGB).

The multi-year collaborative contract is part of a $550M spend to identify ‘big bet’ technologies that have the potential to protect and advance the future dominance of the USAF. USAF additive manufacturing has the potential to save both services millions by ramping-up production and developing certified materials faster, which will produce consistent quality parts at ‘unparalleled speed and economics’.
