Create jet engines in the comfort of your living room?  Not quite, but local expert Ted Anderson of GE will show how GE is now using 3D printing/ Additive Manufacturing to create intricate engine components from CAD to complete parts in days, not months using Direct Metal Laser Sintering, and Electron Beam Melting.

Since 2003, Morris Technologies, Inc. has been known for its extensive capabilities utilizing Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) to produce complex geometries.  The process uses a high power laser and scanner system to fuse fine metal powder layer by layer to create fully dense parts. With the proper thermal treatments, these ‘grown’ components exhibit near wrought properties. 

Electron Beam Melting is an additive manufacturing process that uses multiple high-power electron beams to melt layers of metal powder into complex forms and shapes.  EBM grows parts in a vacuum environment, eliminating the need for post-build stress relieving and enabling parts to be grown using thicker layers than other technologies.

GE Aviation is revolutionizing the age-old rules of manufacturing and design. Learn how additive manufacturing, a 3D printing technology, frees engineers to design the perfect jet engine.


Ted Anderson has a BSME, MSME, and an MBA.  Ted got his big start with additive manufacturing/3D printing in 2005 while researching a flexible surface with multiple degrees of freedom that he was building using a stereolithography (SLA) system.  His career in additive manufacturing includes working for Georgia Tech, Arcam AB, Raytheon as a contractor for NASA, and his current employer GE.  He has experience working with multiple platforms that includes metals, plastics, and electronics.  The systems he has experience with includes fused deposition modeling (FDM), selective laser sintering (SLS), MultiJet, SLA, electron beam melting (EBM), direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) and selective laser melting (SLM)
