Aircraft Philipp adds GEFERTEC Additive Manufacturing system

The new GEFERTEC arc605 will be in-stalled at Aircraft Philipp’s Übersee facility in Bavaria, Germany


Aerospace supplier Aircraft Philipp Übersee GmbH & CO. KG, based in Germany with subsidiaries in Austria, Israel and India, has expanded its Additive Manufacturing capabilities with the purchase of a new GEFERTEC arc605. Capable of producing large components, the arc605 uses a wire based Additive Manufacturing process it calls 3DMP®.

“Developing new aircraft nowadays requires a radical change in thinking with regards to meeting climate targets and resource-optimised production. Applying this method will lead to radically improved buy-to-fly ratios and will, thus, contribute a great deal to economic and ecologic efficieny in future,” stated Rolf Philipp, founder and owner of Aircraft Philipp Übersee.

“We are delighted that Aircraft Philipp Übersee has set its goal towards manufacturing ever greater structural components in the additive fashion. Exactly here lies the special strength and efficiency of 3DMP, which is why it has developed into the new industry standard,” added Tobias Röhrich, CEO of GEFERTEC.

The new GEFERTEC arc605 will be in-stalled at Aircraft Philipp’s Übersee facility in Bavaria, Germany.
