Burloak Technologies Inc., a division of Samuel, Son & Co., has been approved by The Boeing Company to additively manufacture aluminum AlSi10Mg components to the Boeing BAC 5673 specification. This makes Burloak Technologies the world’s first additive manufacturer to achieve this qualification, the company says.

The approval marks the completion of a qualification process that included Boeing’s rigorous evaluation of Burloak’s capabilities. The two companies worked together to develop a well-defined specification that demonstrated robust, repeatable processes to produce flight components using additive manufacturing (AM).

According to the company, the certification demonstrates its ability to commercialize this transformational technology. It also signals the increasing importance of AM within aerospace and represents a step forward on the path to a greener future for aviation.

Burloak Technologies and Boeing are now working to apply the BAC 5673 specification to several programs for existing and future components.
