Why Siemens, GE and Rolls-Royce are turning to 3D printing @GreenBiz

Why Siemens, GE and Rolls-Royce are turning to 3D printing @GreenBiz

3D printing consumes more energy and often generates more waste. On the other hand, these techniques usually have a smaller environmental footprint than traditional machining. Siemens has launched products that generate less high-value waste and allow for quicker, more efficient replacement of sensitive spare parts — such as turbines for industrial gas engines — than would have been possible with other manufacturing technologies. Rolls-Royce has achieved lower energy intensity and higher waste avoidance in the manufacturing process and allowed for on-site repair and extended product life with some of its 3D printing technologies — some of the shapes it produces with 3D printers can't be created any other way. And GE has used 3D printing to achieve improved durability for extended product life, improved fuel efficiency during product use, and simplification and dematerializ...
