Additive Manufacturing Revolutionizes Aerospace

Posted on

The “Global Transport Sector Climate Action Framework” issued in 2008, stated that the aviation industry was aiming to improve fuel efficiency by an average of 1.5% per year from 2009 to 2020. Although this goal indicates progress within the aerospace industry, it will take a truly disruptive technology to take the next huge leap forward in jet engine efficiency. Additive manufacturing is that technology, and General Electric (GE) Aviation in leading the way in applying this revolutionary new manufacturing method to aerospace.
