Smart manufacturing seminar

GE Additive supports customers with additive processing equipment, materials, technical data and engineering services to help enable the translation of additive opportunities into production reality. Drawing on experience from Aviation and other development and implementation actives, this talk will investigate the perceived hurdles in additive implementation and the advancement of technical understanding and engineering experience to address and surmount barriers to gain engineering, quality, and regulatory acceptance with a focus on materials aspects such as powder, processing, sensing, post processing, and properties. Reference to a few case study examples will be made. The talk will also highlight key continuing activities aimed at bringing additive materials and processes into the mainstream manufacturing portfolio.

Speaker: Eric A. Ott, PhD, Principal Engineer
