New facilities from GE Aviation, CAES, and Siemens

GE Aviation, a multinational provider of jet engines, components, and integrated systems, has set up a center of excellence in emerging technologies in Tamil Nadu, India, in partnership with the Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation (TIDCO). 

The facility is designed to create an ecosystem of advanced research and development using additive technologies, and will produce aviation engine parts such as compressor heat exchanges, combustor components, casing frames, gears, and splines. The center will also aim to develop Indian intellectual property (IP) for the 3D printing technologies, including materials, machines, and software.

Elsewhere, Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions (CAES) has opened its new Radio Frequency (RF) Additive Manufacturing Laboratory in Exeter, New Hampshire. The facility will support the firm’s partnership with fellow electronics company SWISSto12 to deliver new 3D printing technologies to the US aerospace and defense industry.

The center contains dedicated equipment for 3D printed RF technology design and manufacturing including a qualified Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) machine, associated process support equipment, proprietary metal finishing and plating line, and complete RF testing capability.
