Kirk Rogers PhD, Technology Leader, GE Center for Additive Technology Advancement (CATA)
Southwestern PA is a hub for Additive Manufacturing and associated services. The opening of GE CATA here accelerated growth in the AM supply chain by purchasing more than $1.5M in products and services in the calendar year 2016. Project examples of the supply chain progress in several AM modalities, that are well-served by the metal manufacturing heritage of SWPA region will be highlighted. In addition, maps of partnerships that enabled those projects will be discussed.
