What happens when you connect people, data and machines? #Innovation . Take the Tier 4 locomotive. It’s essentially a rolling data center, carrying more than 200 sensors that collect information about engine performance, exhaust, fuel and rail conditions. Thanks to Predix, #GE#engineers gather insights from this data to ensure that trains run faster, fuller and more efficiently. #railfan Photo by @seenewphoto
Swipe through to see a wind #turbine blade's journey from #manufacturing to the wild. How do #GE engineers create precise wind turbine blades at such a massive scale? Advanced polymers. These two wind turbine blade forms allow GE Power’s materials scientists to create turbine blades from advanced polymers—a process that helps to produce stronger and more accurate blades, even as they reach lengths of around 240 feet. That’s just one way that smarter manufacturing leads to better #power generation. Photos by @ge__power and @seenewphoto
Dave Bartosik + 3D printer = 1200°C Power Couple. Why? Together, they’re finding a revolutionary way to make jet #engine parts using a specialized titanium powder heated as high as 1200°C. That’s the kind of groundbreaking couple that takes #manufacturing to new heights. Swipe through to see Dave and the 3D printer at work, and head to our Instagram Story for a behind-the-scenes look at our Additive Technology Center in Cincinnati, OH. #PowerCouples#GE#AdditiveManufacturing#MachineCrushMonday#Arcam Photo by @ilitchpeters
#GE Power’s Advanced Manufacturing Works in Greenville, SC houses the future of #manufacturing . Working with the most innovative #technology and the newest of materials, our engineers can craft parts with more complex shapes than ever before. Swipe through for a look at how the “microjet” cutter pictured here allows us to design an intricate yet highly efficient system of cooling holes for gas and jet engines. It's a system so intricate you may have to zoom in to see it. Photos by @ge__power and @geaviation
The Port of LA is the latest example of how #bigdata can transform efficiency. #GE software is helping coordinate resources across the port’s complex logistics, making sure that the right cargo is in the right place at the right time. Check out our Instagram Story to learn more about the Industrial Internet, and head to the link in our bio to tour #PortofLA with @therealadamsavage and @alieward
