Raytheon: Supply chain castings delays jet engine prodn at Pratt & Whitney


“Supply shortages have crippled aerospace’s ability to meet a snapback in demand for travel. The supply of castings has been singled out as problematic by aerospace executives as manufacturing them is a labor-intensive process and it takes time to train new hires.”

You wonder if competitor GE Aviation is also impacted. 3D printing of metals might be one alternative.
