During the Paris Air Show, GE Additive has signed an MoU with Oerlikon of Switzerland, which included an agreement for Oerlikon to become a GE Additive preferred (non-exclusive) component manufacturer.
GE is now working to certify several companies by year’s end, creating a network of additive production capabilities across many industries and regions.
Each certified production partner will operate additive machines from Concept Laser and Arcam, use additive material from AP&C and benefit from orthopaedic best practices developed at DTI. The centers will be held to the highest quality standards and will receive guidance and advice from GE’s additive design and manufacturing experts – enabling them to deliver world-class additive parts and service.
For many years, GE has been a leading end-user and innovator in the additive manufacturing space.
