We can help make an additive manufacturing business case, illustrating the economic and performance benefits for your organization. We can help co-design parts, introduce disruptive design and print proof-of-concept prototypes and low-rate production. Tap into our advanced technical capabilities to qualify your metal additive parts faster and increase your success rate with additive parts.
Whether you’re looking to additively manufacture parts in industries like aerospace, medical, automotive or any other industry, GE's AddWorks team applies best practices and a proven methodology to solve your biggest technical and business challenges. Shorten your time to market and find cost savings wherever you are in the additive process with tailored solutions designed for your team.
Improve part performance and processes
Leverage our team of additive designers, engineers and material scientists to optimize your parts and processes with a systematic approach that goes beyond the part. We will help explore product solutions that aim to differentiate your parts technically and provide significant performance benefits.
transform your business
Rewrite the rules of manufacturing, optimize your supply chain and open new market opportunities with our unparalleled expertise and proven methodology. We provide training to launch your organization's cultural transformation, develop an AM adoption roadmap and more.
Learn how to select the right parts for AM. Create your business case by drafting a strategic roadmap that includes your project list with cost analysis, benefits and an implementation strategy.
Learn to design, analyze and prepare AM parts, including support structures and process modeling. Gain a new understanding of advanced AM design and how to optimize parts for the AM process.
Access tools, such as machines and facilities, to enable full production. Create a step-by-step planto move toward production of your metal additive part.
Our Discovery Workshop combined with developing a plan for a selected application. Our team will help you develop the concept and refine your business case. Expect a final concept and roadmap for the next phase of your additive journey at the end of this sprint.
Our Design Workshop plus advanced techniques to help iterate design and methods for metal additive parts. Arrive at a final design and a roadmap for industrialization and production.
The Production Sprint includes our Industrialization Workshop tailored to your specific application. This sprint also includes the development of process specifications, to help enable the production of your application.
Let our experts tackle the challenges for you. We can take your part requirements and develop the application-specific design, material or manufacturing process to meet your needs so you can explore additive without adding infrastructure to adopt the technology.
Leverage our experts to work beside your team, teaching additive skills and strategies to overcome challenges in additive design, materials, manufacturing and overall production.
Printing additive parts is both an art and science. The right experience and technological equipment are necessary to print successful parts that meet product requirements. We have experience transitioning prototype parts to production in our AS9100 certified Cincinnati, Ohio facility. We’ll develop your manufacturing process to help maximize productivity and throughput.
Printing services enable our customers to supplement their supply chain while they establish their additive part procurement strategy. GE will leverage in-network additive machines to accelerate the development and industrialization of a customer’s application.
