Aviation manufacturing firm AM Craft is supplying 3D printed aircraft interior parts to commercial airline company Finnair.

The FDM 3D printed blanking panels will be installed into Finnairโ€™s fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft, replacing existing flip-down video monitors that are said to be heavy and outdated.

More than 300 of these 3D printed components are being delivered on a just-in-time basis, with Finnair looking to upgrade the Passenger Service Units (PSUs) of 17 A320s. The aviation firm believes this 3D printing strategy will minimize excess inventory and eliminate costs associated with its existing supply chain.
