GE Additive says that it is actively selecting companies to become certified additive production centers for its customers.

 ‘We (GE Additive) are not currently in the business of making additive parts for other companies,’ said Mohammad Ehteshami, vice president and general manager. ‘We want to accelerate additive manufacturing by providing machines, materials and engineering consultancy services to them. However, we do recognise that there is a huge demand for additive parts, so we feel that setting up these certified production centers will allow us to meet the growing demand for additive components.’

Each certified production partner will operate additive machines from Concept Laser and Arcam, use additive material from AP&C and benefit from orthopaedic best practices developed at DTI.
