Maintainers from the U.S. Air Force 574th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron (AMXS) have installed the first titanium additively manufactured titanium component on an operational Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor. While the U.S. Air Force routinely uses additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, to create parts for legacy aircraft, the service is beginning to incorporate the practice into supply chains for fifth-generation aircraft.
