3.2 Accelerating AM Through Collaboration
From Karla Oconnor
Ms. Anna Safigan, an aerospace engineer at the Naval Air Warfare Center - Aircraft Division partners with Mr. Mark Shaw, Director of Government Programs and Technology for GE Additive, in this case study about the F414 engine accelerator part. Additively manufacturing the accelerator out of different material and combining 5 parts into one part reduced stress on the part and increased its durability. Engaging in mutual projects and partnerships accelerated additive manufacturing to the fleet.
