FitALM Project: Industrialising additive manufacturing for aeronautic fittings
CATEC and Airbus (through Tablada factory in Seville and Centro Bahía de Cádiz factory in Puerto de Santa María) collaborates in the development of optimized flight parts fabricated by Additive Manufacturing: the project FitALM.

This project is an end-to-end project with the aim of industrialising different fitting configurations with the following framework:
• Manufacturing technology will be Selective Laser Melting (SLM)
• Titanium 6Al4V and Scalmalloy® (Al-base alloy) as manufacturing materials
• Parts will be Fittings, understood as those parts that transfer a punctual load and spread throughout the structure

Apart from the acquisition of know-how that every single development project provides, this project will contribute to SLM deployment by:
• Providing a quotation of fittings by type and loads and not based on the part model (a comparison with already industrialised fittings will add value to the project)
• Systematizing the parameters set-up procedure by a tested DoE
• Looking for a local optimal manufacturing parameter set

The FitALM Project is founded by Corporación Tecnológica de Andalucía (CTA).
