GE Additive Ships First Concept Laser M Line Factory To U.S.

August 2, 2019

At the end of July, GE Additive shipped the first Concept Laser M Line Factory system from Germany to the United States, with its new home at GE Aviation’s Additive Technology Center in Cincinnati, OH.
The modular M Line Factory forms the core of GE Additive Concept Laser’s AM Factory of Tomorrow concept, which makes provisions for upstream and downstream stages of the production process, and can interface with conventional manufacturing methods. The expandable, automated and centrally controllable production system enables the economical series production of 3D printed metal parts, according to company officials.
Interestingly, a Boeing 747-8 Freighter transported the system—the plane features Genx-2B engines that soon will incorporate additive parts, manufactured on GE Additive Concept Laser M2 machines in Auburn, AL.
