GE Additive Opens in MunichDecember 7, 2017
GE Additive has opened its first international Customer Experience Center in Munich. The $15-million, 2700-square-meter is colocated with GE's European Technology Center, and allows current and potential customers to experience every aspect of the additive manufacturing process. The center will employ up to 50 GE Additive employees, including technicians and engineers specializing in additive design and production. Ten additive machines from Germany's Concept Laser and Sweden's Arcam EBM have been installed. The facility enables customers to start with a concept, design and build a prototype, and then move all the way through production, while enabling them to think through industrializing processes and helping them to improve their products and supply chain. The center also provides an educational facility for Additive Academy™ - GE Additive's customer training team. GE Additive customers are welcome to visit the center to collaborate with the team on additive design, process development, prototyping and industrializing their additive operations.
"The opening of our Customer Experience Center here in Munich marks a great milestone for us," says Robert Griggs, customer success leader at GE Additive. "Germany is the global innovation hub for additive manufacturing. Right here, at the heart of the additive revolution, the center will operate as the interface between customers and our teams. We look forward to working closely with European companies and institutes, allowing them to fully realize the transformative potential that additive design and manufacturing can bring.”
