GE Aviation Achieves AM Milestone

Tuesday, October 9, 2018

GE Aviation’s plant in Auburn, AL, 3D-printed last week, its 30,000th additive manufactured (AM) fuel nozzle tip. Employees at the facility began producing the nozzle tip in 2015. Today, more than 40 printers are making the parts.

“This milestone isn’t just about reaching production of 30,000 fuel nozzle tips. The team should also be proud of their role in helping prove additive technology works in mass production for our business and others who buy GE technology,” says Ricardo Acevedo, plant leader for GE Aviation Auburn.

There are 230 employees at the 300,000-sq.-ft. facility, with projections for employment to increase to 300 staff members in 2019.
