Machines

Selling machines with unlimited growth potential

Featuring some of the most advanced additive technologies available, our machines enable customers to grow products quickly and precisely. And since they’re capable of achieving high levels of accuracy, even on intricate shapes and geometries, our machines open up new design possibilities across a multitude of applications.

Electron Beam Melting (EBM) machines

Our EBM machines create dimensionally accurate parts quickly and efficiently by utilizing a high-power electron beam for high melting capacity and productivity. The Arcam EBM process takes place in vacuum and at high temperature, resulting in stress-relieved components with material properties better than cast and comparable to wrought material.

Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM)

Our DMLM metal 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 the largest powder-bed metal additive system in the world — are available to meet the needs of any industry. Innovative features, including the patented LaserCUSING® technology, set these machines apart.

Experience

Embracing additive in our own businesses

At GE, we’ve experienced first-hand the benefits that additive brings to product designs – opening up the design envelope and enabling the creation of lighter, stronger parts and systems. We’ve also designed products that improve performance and are more complex in design, yet simpler to build.

Combustor swirlers

For Oil & Gas applications, additive technology has facilitated the development of finely tuned designs for the combustor swirler – the part that mixes fuel into the burner. Originally constructed from four externally sourced components, the additive process enables the part to be printed in one piece, making it stronger and more reliable.

Fuel nozzle tip

One of the first additively manufactured jet engine components, the CFM International* LEAP fuel nozzle tip combines 20 parts into one for 5X the durability and 25% lighter weight. Designed for sustainably high, long-term output, our dedicated 300,000 sq. ft. facility in Auburn, Alabama is expected to produce more than 200,000 fuel nozzle tips during the life of the program.

*CFM International is a 50/50 joint company between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines

Advanced Turboprop engine

In developing the Advanced Turboprop engine for Cessna’s new aircraft, we started the design with additive technologies in mind. The result is an engine that eliminates more than 800 conventionally manufactured parts, significantly reducing weight and improving fuel efficiency.

Education

Investing in a limitless future

At GE, we believe giving students access to additive technologies will help accelerate the adoption of advanced manufacturing worldwide. That’s why we’re investing $10 million over the next five years in educational programs aimed at developing future additive talent.

This includes $2 million to subsidize desktop polymer printers at primary and secondary schools, and $8 million to subsidize metal additive machines at colleges and universities. It’s all part of our passion for improving student outcomes and exposing future generations to new technologies.
