GE Aviation and GE Additive engineers have switched four existing parts from castings to metal 3D printing—and see potential for hundreds more
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.
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.
Wherever you are on your path to full metal additive production, our team is ready to help you bring new innovation to market faster.
What are AddWorks Workshops?
Learn foundational knowledge and additive strategies in a classroom environment. Workshops typically run three to five days.
What are the Application Sprints?
Get comprehensive support anywhere on your path to production with workshops and training, and/or hands-on consulting with GE’s AddWorks experts.
We’ve carefully developed our powders to seamlessly fit into the entire GE Additive ecosystem and provide total compatibility with our machines. We provide metal powder, process settings and support for these materials ideal for the aerospace industry:
