Customer Experience Center
Our Customer Experience Centers are designed to help customers accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing across all stages of their additive journey; from product design, to prototyping and through to production - supporting them along the way.
Opened in December 2017 to support customers in Europe, the Customer Experience Center in Garching (15km north of Munich) includes an operations floor, training rooms and collaboration spaces. Customers can get hands-on learning of additive machines and see what value they bring. The training rooms provide an excellent environment to learn about the machines, materials, additive design and operations. Specially designed spaces at the center also allow customers to collaborate with the GE team on product design, materials selection, process optimization, and look at the complete product development process. Customers can also request product prototypes and schedule low-rate production of their additive parts. The team will even guide you through what it takes to set up your own additive facility.
There are a number of different ways that customers can use the Customer Experience Center in Munich.
