At the RAPID + TCT show in Texas, Chris Schuppe, GM of AddWorks at GE Additive, explains a new offering called AddWorks. He gets into how it came about, what it is, why it is needed, and what types of services GE is offering with it. Listeners who are already in AM can still benefit from AddWorks, said Schuppe, who details what automotive and medical customers have accomplished with AddWorks. “We’ve had challenges where we couldn’t figure out the next steps in our (AM) journey,” he said. “We lived that over the last 7-10 years. Now we are taking that as an external consulting service.”
