Aerospace firm Triumph Group selects GE Additive to help further AM strategy

GE Additive has announced that aerospace firm Triumph Group has selected two of its systems, as well as a range of its AddWorks consultancy service packages, to help further its additive manufacturing strategy.

Triumph has selected a Concept Laser M2 Cusing Multilaser DMLM system and an Arcam EBM Q20plus system to be installed at its R&D facility in Seattle with installation expected to be completed within Q3 2018. GE Additive's AddWorks team will partner closely with the team at Triumph from day one on a range of areas, including discovery workshops, materials selections through to advising on prototyping strategies.

'I really admire Triumph’s smart and progressive strategy in adopting a multimodality approach to their additive journey,' said Jason Oliver, president and CEO, GE Additive. 'And when you add to that the deep experience and divergent thinking of our AddWork’s team, I look forward to seeing the results of what I hope will be a long and rewarding relationship.'

'Triumph Group is excited to work with GE Additive to broaden Triumph’s utilization of additive manufacturing technology,' said Dan Crowley, president & CEO, Triumph Group. 'Thus far we have successfully used additive manufacturing for prototyping, and we are rapidly growing its use for design competency. This partnership with GE Additive will strengthen our additive manufacturing capability, accelerating our ability to design and develop future on-wing solutions for our customers.'
