During the Paris Air Show, June 17–23, 2019, Tusaş USAŞ Engine Industries, Inc. (TEI), Eskişehir, Turkey, invested in two M Line Factory systems and two M2 Cusing machines from Concept Laser, a GE Additive company, headquartered in Lichtenfels, Germany. The new systems will be installed at TEI’s headquarters, building on the company’s existing fleet of Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) and Arcam EBM systems.

TEI was established in 1985 as a joint venture between GE Aviation, Turkish Aerospace Industries, the Turkish Armed Forces Foundation and the Turkish Aeronautical Association and for the past thirty years has manufactured more than 1,000 different parts across a range of products for the global and Turkish aviation industry. It currently provides services to OEMs for more than forty different types of military and commercial engine programmes.

“Today, we invest in TEI’s future by investing in Additive Manufacturing, ‘the future of manufacturing.’ Our longstanding partnership and collaboration with GE is now broadening with GE Additive’s machine portfolio,” stated Professor Dr Mahmut Faruk Akşit, President & CEO, TEI.

“The M2 remains the machine of choice for our aerospace customers – and for good reason,” commented Jason Oliver, President & CEO, GE Additive. “It’s not only the work-horse of our machine portfolio, but it meets the specific needs and demands of this highly-regulated industry.

“And with so many aerospace customers on the cusp of industrialisation, our M Line Factory with its modular machine architecture, outstanding automation and reliability makes it the perfect solution to drive economical, scalable series production on an industrial scale,” he concluded.
