DM3D Technology Teams With BARNES Aerospace to Deliver Fan Components for GE 9X Engine

DM3D Technology, LLC., a Michigan based 3D additive metal manufacturing company, has teamed with BARNES Aerospace to deliver superior quality aerospace fan components using DM3D ‘s proprietary and patented direct metal deposition (DMD)® technology.

The two companies have been working together along with GE Aviation to develop this application for GE’s 9X engine which is scheduled for full scale production commencing 2020.

The complex geometry of these components is an ideal application for the multi-axis deposition capability of DM3D's additive process.
