Your competitive advantage now has a name — AddWorks™

Using GE’s additive expertise, our AddWorks team will help you explore this revolutionary technology, so you can transform your business in ways you never dreamed possible.

AddWorks imbeds our experts with your team, learning what your products do now and what you need them to become. We will help explore product solutions that aim to differentiate your parts technically and may provide significant performance benefits. Our assessment can determine if a part is appropriate for additive or better produced conventionally. We will help make an additive manufacturing business case, illustrating the economic and performance benefits for your organization.

GE expertise at every step

GE Additive’s AddWorks™ team intimately knows your challenges. We experienced them, too, asking the same questions you may have now: Is additive right for us? Where do we start? How do we adopt additive and still get a positive business return? What’s the timeline? 

Because we have faced these challenges and experienced successes with our own additive journey, we can help you navigate yours and find the path most beneficial to your organization’s operations and goals.

We create value by working with you

Discovery Workshop

In this 3-to-5-day onsite session, the AddWorks team shares additive knowledge with your team, using proprietary tools and processes to identify and prioritize additive opportunities.  

Disruptive Design

Work with the AddWorks team for additive design, engineering and materials assistance, with access to GE design examples. Gain quicker turnaround time on parts design vs. in-house creation.

Materials Development

AddWorks materials experts provide assistance on materials selection from GE Additive’s catalog, along with developing parameters and testing protocols to achieve desired material properties. The cycle time to achieve a new alloy’s printability is demonstrably reduced.

Prototypes/Printing Parts

AddWorks prints additive-designed parts and helps determine and execute post-processing steps to achieve your result. This determines feasibility before making a capital investment and provides a bridge to support initial production while you set up your additive supply chain.

Production Process Development

The AddWorks team can help structure your manufacturing process to achieve increased productivity, including technical requirements, materials, build strategies and post-processing. Gain the right build for a lower cost and reduce manufacturing losses.

Part and Machine Qualification

AddWorks helps you set up the production process to achieve ongoing part repeatability — confirming that printed parts meet your product and industry-specific requirements. Our experience helps reduce trial and error costs while identifying and mitigating risks.
