PCC Buys Metal 3D Printing Company
Atlantic Precision (AP), Port St. Lucie, Fla., was purchased late last year by Precision Castparts Corp. (PCC) of Portland, Ore. AP specializes in the 3D printing of metal parts with experience in the aerospace market. It offers direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) printing services in Inconel 625, Inconel 718, cobalt chrome, aluminum and titanium for prototyping or production. Private equity fund Generation Growth Capital bought AP in 2014, but has since decided to divest itself of the asset at an undisclosed price. PCC is a global supplier of cast and forged components for aircraft and industrial gas turbines.
