GE Aviation’s Auburn plant ships 100,000th 3-D printed fuel nozzle

AUBURN, Alabama — The GE Aviation additive manufacturing center in Auburn has achieved a major milestone — it shipped the 100,000th fuel nozzle tip grown on sophisticated 3-D printers at a plant that is pioneering new technologies for producing jet engine components.

The Auburn site began producing fuel nozzles in 2015 and was the industry’s first mass manufacturing site for producing aircraft engine parts using additive manufacturing.

“As GE grows the number of jet engine parts made with additive manufacturing methods, we expect to continue to advance our manufacturing capabilities right here in Auburn,” said Andrea McAllister, plant leader for GE Aviation Auburn.

“We encourage those interested in helping build the future of flight with innovative technologies to join the GE Aviation team.”
