GE Additive and Stryker have entered a partnership agreement to support Stryker’s growth in Additive Manufacturing, the companies have announced. The agreement covers new AM systems, materials and services for Stryker’s global supply chain operations. The announcement was made at GE’s Minds + Machines event, June 13-14, 2017, at the Westhafen Event & Convention Center, Berlin, Germany. Minds + Machines is the company’s premier industrial internet event dedicated to software, innovation and the sharing of digital industrial outcomes.

“GE and Stryker share a similar vision and both of us understand the transformative power of additive design and manufacturing,” stated Vice President and General Manager of GE Additive, Mohammad Ehteshami. “We regard Stryker as one of the most experienced practitioners of metal additive, with a range of commercialised medical products. We will continue to innovate with new additive products, materials and technologies, which will support their growth.”

Stryker has already invested in Concept Laser and Arcam machines. The company’s investment in AM began in 2001 and, since then, it has collaborated with leading universities in Ireland and the UK to industrialise Additive Manufacturing for the healthcare industry. Stryker recently opened a global technology development centre with an additive technology manufacturing hub in Carrigtohill, County Cork, Ireland. AM allows Stryker to address design complexity and achieve previously unmanufacturable geometries.

“Working with GE Additive and leveraging their expertise is a very compelling proposition for Stryker,” commented John Haller, Vice President of Global Supply at Stryker. “We believe this collaboration will accelerate our Additive Manufacturing journey and support our mission to make healthcare better.”
