With over a half a century of expertise and key aerospace machining technologies, GF Machining Solutions keeps aerospace OEMs, Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers, maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) partners and other contract manufacturers soaring high above the competition. GF Machining Solutions offers a vast range of aerospace component manufacturing solutions including, most recently, metal AM.
The full potential of AM as an important aerospace component manufacturing technology is supported by recent studies predicting a growth rate of as much as 23 percent for AM in aerospace manufacturing. That makes good business sense because AM optimizes buy-to-fly ratios through reduced costs associated with waste material and enhances geometry and design for functionality to reduce aircraft weight and increase performance.
GF Machining Solutions’ long history of relationships with aerospace OEMs and 3D Systems’ deep AM expertise and broad portfolio of 3D printers position these partners to develop factory grade AM solutions that fully address the challenges of mass production and the aerospace industry’s full traceability requirement.
