Aerospace supplier Kanfit to add metal Additive Manufacturing

May 16, 2016

Aerospace supplier Kanfit to add metal Additive ManufacturingKanfit Ltd., Israel, is a manufacturer of components, sub-assemblies and ready to fly assemblies made from metal and composite materials for the aerospace and medical device industries. The company recently announced that it plans to add metal Additive Manufacturing to its range of production technologies following the purchase of an M290 system from EOS.

The new system for Additive Manufacturing of Ti64 G5 is the latest technology to be introduced at Kanfit and can be used for high-quality metal parts and prototypes. Last year, Kanfit inaugurated its new autoclave facility for the production of composite parts, including hybrid main landing gear and avionic doors, and wing-to-belly fairings.

“This new addition to our technological capabilities is another step in our strategy to provide top quality innovative solutions to our customers. The addition of the 3D printer to our other technological capabilities such as the  autoclave enables us to enlarge our product and service offerings and puts us in a position to competitively bid and participate in a wider range of industry projects than ever before,” stated Shai Fine, Founder and General Manager of Kanfit.

“Our reputation as a reliable and trusted manufacturer of both high quality composite and metal parts is spreading, as more and more companies turn to us for cost-effective, lightweight, fuel-efficient products,” added Fine.
