Metal additive can provide fleet readiness
An uncertain world with a complex threat matrix requires advanced platforms with modern supply chains. Whether on the ground or in the air, sea or space, additive is the game-changing technology you need for more capable military products. Now, the ready are evaluating how additive can yield benefits like organic sustainment and increased fleet readiness.
US Air Force and GE’s collaboration on metal additive reaches first technology milestone with 3D printed sump cover for F110 engine. This program with Air Force’s Rapid Sustainment Office aims to accelerate adoption of metal additive technologies to improve readiness, sustainment and de-risk spare parts supply chain.
