Under the agreement, Burloak will combine its additive manufacturing and machining capabilities with Safran Landing Systems' titanium parts to develop landing system components, including brake sleeves, using high-deposition directed energy technology.

A generic brake sleeve prototype has been jointly developed, with an approximate diameter of 6.5 inches (165 millimeters) and a height of approximately 17 inches (430 millimeters). This prototype will be on display at Burloak Technologies' booth at the Paris International Airshow, June 17 to 20, Hall 3, Booth 20. Burloak will be co-located with Samuel and Missouri Metals, a leader in custom titanium hot forming and super plastic forming of aerospace parts.
