Take to the skies with metal additive solutions

Additive manufacturing is disrupting the aerospace industry and accelerating the way parts are designed and manufactured. AM out-rivals traditional manufacturing because it allows production of lighter, more-durable and more-efficient designs for the aerospace industry.

for the ready

Now is the time to leave molds and dies in the dust. To pave your path to full metal additive production—faster. Or risk falling behind. Leaders in aerospace are already realizing their competitive advantage with metal additive. As your trusted partner with more than 10 years in metal additive industrialization, we’ll help you realize your additive advantage and get to full production faster.

Download our playbook Planning a Successful Transition to Serial Additive Production in which we share some lessons learned on our own additive journey to help others as they take steps to shift to industrialization.

AM benefits for aerospace

Improved part performance
Leverage GE’s technical design and material parameters expertise and design for part performance, rather than for the manufacturing process. It has been shown that additive components and systems can outperform their traditional predecessors with respect to material properties and performance-oriented designs that are less restricted by manufacturing constraints.

Simplified supply chains
Produce low-volume replacement parts in-house, streamlining the supply chain and reducing the time it takes to acquire spare parts for maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO).

Return on investment
Uncover all the opportunities for ROI that go beyond part cost and consolidation.
