Partnership is the core of what we do and who we are at GE Additive. We offer a suite of products to help you unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing, and we have the world's largest team of additive experts who are uniquely suited to guide your additive journey. So, whatever you design and build, let's work together to show you a new way.
For the Ready
GE Additive – part of GE (NYSE: GE) – is a world leader in metal additive design and manufacturing, a pioneering process that has the power and potential to transform businesses. Through our integrated offering of additive experts, advanced machines, software and quality powders, we empower our customers to build innovative new products. Products that solve manufacturing challenges, improve business outcomes and help change the world for the better. GE Additive includes additive machine brands Concept Laser and Arcam EBM, along with additive powder supplier AP&C.
We understand first-hand how this technology can help transform businesses by improving products and manufacturing operations. Furthermore, we know what it takes to implement this change in your organization. We partner with a range of industries, from aerospace to energy, automotive to healthcare, guiding their additive journeys and supporting them with our knowledge and expertise.
Arcam EBM joined GE Additive in 2017 to further strengthen the additive offering with the unique Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology, which is ideal for volume production of metal components. Arcam AB was founded in 1997 and delivered the first EBM system in 2003. Today, more than 300 systems are installed worldwide.
Arcam EBM machines are ideally suited for producing dimensionally accurate parts that need to be created quickly and efficiently. Working in a vacuum using a high-power electron beam for high melting capacity and productivity, the EBM process delivers stress-relieved components with better material properties than casting.
Concept laser history
Concept Laser was founded in 2000 and quickly became one of the world’s leading providers of machine and plant technology for 3D printing of metal parts. In December of 2016, Concept Laser joined GE Additive, adding a wide range of DMLM machine sizes to GE’s areas of additive expertise.
To create components with complex geometries requiring exceptional precision, Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM) is the ideal approach. Our DMLM machines use lasers to melt layers of fine metal powder and create complex geometries with incredible precision directly from a CAD file. Several different machine envelope sizes — including one of the largest powder-bed metal additive systems in the world — are available to meet the needs of any industry.
a GE additive company
AP&C has 10+ years of experience working with major biomedical and aerospace OEMs. AP&C is the only company able to supply the highest-quality AM powder at competitive prices.
AP&C’s mission is to enable the production of high-quality parts made from titanium and other high-melting-point alloys in additive manufacturing and powder metallurgy processes. AP&C continuously invests in R&D to optimize the proprietary Advanced Plasma Atomization (APA) process to provide superior quality products at competitive prices.
Incorporating additive manufacturing into your production process is a journey. Wherever you are in that process, GE Additive’s AddWorks consultants can guide you. Comprised of designers, engineers and material scientists, our team of experts has developed assessments and best practices to identify the most effective way for additive technology to support your business.
