Hardware Meets Software in Advanced Manufacturing
At the intersection of hardware and software, advanced manufacturing is changing how we create. GE is helping to pioneer technologies like cold spray, which creates 3D shapes by spraying metal powders onto a surface at thousands of miles an hour. Cold spray can restore jet engine blades, rotors and other components. GE’s research into advanced manufacturing technologies – including rapid prototyping, cold spray and 3D printing – is pushing the boundaries of what’s possible on the factory floor.
