Webinar: Wabtec - The Quest for Additive Production Parts Using Binder Jet Technology
GE Additive has partnered with Wabtec to scale Binder Jet technology from a beta program, to pilot lines, and then into a complete industrial factory solution. This collaboration was established to bolster Wabtec’s growing additive strategy and its application to the transportation industry. Additive is one of the key technology pillars for Wabtec and central to their efforts to drive innovation in the industries they serve. Binder Jet technology will enable Wabtec’s advanced designs to be produced in a reliable, low-cost manner for their current and developmental engines in locomotive, transit and mining programs.
Wabtec has been hard at work to understand how additive manufacturing can be integrated into its business to positively impact its products and transform its supply chain. So far, the company has set a target to have additive technologies being used in the production of up to 250 components for its product lines by 2025. The GE Additive team will continue to work closely with Wabtec to support the company’s industrialization strategy.
Join this webinar and hear from Philip Moslener, Corporate Vice-President, Advanced Technologies at Wabtec Corporation, and Jacob Brunsberg, Binder Jet Product Line Leader at GE Additive, to learn about Wabtec’s journey towards additive production and the future collaboration of the two companies.
