The GE Catalyst, pictured here, is part of a new era of turboprop engines. Thanks to advanced manufacturing, we were able to combine what required 855 separate parts in previous models to just 12 components, crafting a more efﬁcient and reliable engine. Head to our Story Highlights for a look at our facility in Prague, where we manufactured components for the GE Catalyst. #GECatalyst#aviation#avgeek#aviationlovers
As the world’s first jet engine to include 3D-printed parts, the CFM LEAP is a blend of advanced manufacturing techniques. 3D-printed fuel nozzles and fan blades woven from carbon fiber composites (CMCs) helped make the LEAP stronger and lighter. #FunFact thanks to CMCs, each fan blade is strong enough to hold the weight of a wide-body aircraft, while shedding 500 pounds per engine.

A fish-eye-view of a Haliade 150-6MW wind turbine. This one is located about three miles off the coast of Block Island, RI at America’s first offshore wind farm. Building just one of these turbines is a feat of manufacturing and logistics. Head to our Story for an inside look at our latest offshore project involving 66 wind turbines like the one pictured here.

Additive techniques have transformed manufacturing at every phase – from intricate design to complex builds. Though this miniature 3D-printed engine is a model, the advanced manufacturing techniques that produced it have allowed us to build real aircraft engines with more efficiency and greater durability. The CFM LEAP, for example, is 15% more fuel efficient than its predecessors thanks to 3D-printed fuel nozzles. #additive#additivemfg#additivedesign#aviation#aviationlovers
