GE bought what used to be called Morris Technologies in 2012. Morris was the first to introduce 3D metallic based technology to North America.</p><p>The technology works by taking a very fine grain metal powder and thinly layering it&nbsp;using a laser. This is different than taking solid material and subtracting it to make a part, like is done in machining.</p> Wed, 09 Apr 2014 18:00:00 +0000 Ann Thompson 21882 at http://wvxu.org GE facility gives glimpse of 3D printer future EPA fast tracking permits for Ohio business http://wvxu.org/post/epa-fast-tracking-permits-ohio-business <p></p><p>Ohio EPA Director Scott Nally, challenged by Governor John Kasich to outcompete neighboring states for jobs and capital, points to a plan his agency used with GE Aviation to fast track permits. What normally could take up to 18 months to approve took just five months.&nbsp;Because it was so successful, the system of using&nbsp;six people instead of&nbsp;two to process the permit&nbsp;may be modeled around the state and nation.</p><p><strong>GE Aviation's urgency</strong></p> Mon, 25 Nov 2013 11:00:00 +0000 Ann Thompson 19910 at http://wvxu.org EPA fast tracking permits for Ohio business Ohio's aerospace industry taking off with GE partnerships http://wvxu.org/post/ohios-aerospace-industry-taking-ge-partnerships <p><a href="http://www.geaviation.com/" target="_blank">GE Aviation </a>and <a href="http://www.uc.edu/discovery/ucri.html" target="_blank">University of Cincinnati Research Institute</a> (UCRI)&nbsp;have signed an agreement to&nbsp;collaborate<strong>&nbsp;</strong>at&nbsp;the new GE Aviation Research Center in Evendale&nbsp;and its three labs.
