The American aircraft manufacturer, Boeing, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Israeli firm, Assembrix, for an additive manufacturing project.

Boeing will use Assembrix’s cloud-based software to secure intellectual property (IP) shared with vendors.

The IP will be protected during both design and manufacturing, as Boeing aims to accelerate its 3D printing operations.

“Boeing seeks suppliers globally who meet stringent quality, schedule, cost and intellectual capital standards, and Assembrix does all of that,” stated David Ivry, President of Boeing Israel.

“We are pleased to partner with Boeing and value its confidence in us and in our capabilities,” remarked Lior Polak, CEO of Assembrix.

“This collaboration supports our vision to develop and implement innovative solutions that connect the world and take the additive manufacturing digital thread one step forward.”

The US-based company has additive operations in 20 different sites across the globe – working on parts for commercial, space, and defense manufacturing.

Boeing has also invested in the metal-based 3D printing firm, Morf3D, which makes titanium and aluminium components for the firm.

“This investment will enable us to increase our engineering staff and expand our technology footprint of EOS M400-4 DMLS systems to better serve the growing demand of our aerospace customers, said the CEO of Morf3D, Ivan Madera.
