BERLIN: Aviation conference specialist, RedCabin, today announces its Aircraft Cabin Additive Manufacturing summit to take place 6 – 7 March at the iconic Etihad Airways Innovation Centre in Abu Dhabi.

Hosted by Etihad Airways Engineering, the summit aims to bring together leading figures from the world of aviation to collaborate and innovate new ways for the industry – and passengers – to benefit from additive manufacturing (AM).

The lifespan of an aircraft, typically between 20 – 30 years, makes maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) a key component for airlines that want to keep up with changing consumer trends and evolving technologies. According to a recent Airbus Global Market Forecast, the MRO market in commercial aviation is set to double in the next 20 years to $120 billion – presenting a significant opportunity for 3D printing to reshape aircraft design and maintenance.

The RedCabin summit will host senior executives from the world’s leading airlines, manufacturers, and suppliers of 3D printing solutions to discuss challenges in the aviation industry and formulate new ways to collaborate. Attending this year’s conference are senior level personnel from companies such as Etihad Airways Engineering, Air France KLM, Air New Zealand, Safran, Airbus and ASTM International.

Across two days of keynote speeches, panel discussions and interactive working groups, delegates can network with industry figures and participate in open and honest discussions focussed on ways to support the manufacture and development of AM products, as well as how to accelerate the creation of a standardised framework for certification.

Monica Wick, founder and CEO of RedCabin commented: “Additive manufacturing has huge potential to alleviate supply chain constraints, reduce waste and support the development of new lightweight products – ushering a new era in commercial aviation. The summit represents a vision for a better future, creating a forum for progress whereby those working in the aviation industry can share their knowledge and experiences to support positive change.

“I would also like to give a special thank you to our commercial partner BASF, and our event sponsors: EOS and Stratasys. Their support has ensured RedCabin can continue to be a hotbed for innovation.”
