GE Aviation Signs JTDA With Sigma Labs

GE Aviation and Sigma Labs have signed a Joint Technology Development Agreement (JTDA) to advance and implement in-process inspection technologies for additive manufactured jet engine components. The new technology hopes to validate the quality and geometry of additive components during the additive build process and increase production speeds by up to 25 per cent.  “By conducting those inspection procedures while the component is being built, GE Aviation and Sigma Labs will expedite production rates for GE’s additive manufactured engine components like the LEAP fuel nozzle,” said Greg Morris, business development manager additive manufacturing, GE Aviation.
