The aerospace industry is widely considered to be a pioneer for its early adoption and use of additive manufacturing. The benefits of lighter and more cost-effective parts in planes is a huge win for airlines, aircraft manufactures, and parts suppliers.
Jabil Additive’s facility enables Aerospace customers the ability to scale while meeting rigorous industry standards. Part of the Jabil Additive Manufacturing Network, the Seattle facility allows for easy local distribution and access to Jabil Engineered Materials. Our Seattle Aerospace additive manufacturing flex cell has:
Large Scale Powder Blending and Handling

Integrated Dimensional Metrology
Detail Part Assembly
Lighter, Stronger, Better
The innovations in materials and design methods is changing at a rapid pace. Capitalize on these innovations with a consolidated bill of materials, lighter components, and better overall parts and assemblies.
Legacy No Longer an Issue
Legacy parts are expensive to store and manage. Instead, maintain an online database of digital files, that with a few clicks can be printed when and where they’re needed.
New Business Models
Entire companies will soon be built around reproducing the design of legacy and new parts into digital files. Owning these files allows companies to be flexible to the changing demands within the industry.
Eliminate the environmental and resource waste that comes with inventories, warehouses, and unnecessary transportation of parts and components.
