Additive Manufacturing: Disruption in Future Design

  • Wednesday, 04/10/2019: 1:45 PM - 2:30 PM
  • Session Number:  220


      Additive Manufacturing is disruptive. While it is currently in a learning and process improvement stage it is fully expected that the way aircraft engines are designed and maintained will change substantially. Additive, or 3D printing as it is called, simplifies systems, reduces supply chain costs and accelerates design innovation. In a recent “science project” GE Additive started a complete redesign of an advanced turboprop engine. Weight was reduced by 5% and parts dropped from 855 to just 12 parts. This session will look at the advantages and its impact on military aircraft sustainment.
