GE Additive confirmed at the Paris Air Show that Toulouse-based FusiA Aeroadditive – part of the French group Freyssinet AeroEquipment and the Canadian FusiA Group –  will invest in its first GE Additive Concept M2 multilaser system. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“As our business scales we have made the strategic decision to transition over to GE Additive technology and invest first of all in a Concept Laser M2 platform,” says Cyrille Chanal, CEO of FusiA Groupe.  “Through its own additive journey, GE Additive brings deep experience of the specific needs of the highly-regulated aerospace industry and therefore the demands of our customers for reliable and repeatable technology,” he adds.

With more than eight years’ experience in metal additive manufacturing, FusiA Aeroaddtive is an ISO 9001 and AS/EN/JISQ 9001-certified tier-one supplier to the aerospace industry. The company’s customers include Airbus, Bombardier and Safran and it is also closely involved in a number of additive research projects on both sides of the Atlantic.

“We’re honored to welcome FusiA Aeroadditive as a customer,” said Jason Oliver, President & CEO, GE Additive. “Yet another clear signal that the M2 is the system of choice for the aerospace industry,” he added.

Reached independently by 3dpbm at the Paris Air Show, a representative from FusiA confirmed that the company is interested in evaluating GE’s technology for future serial production of aerospace final parts and did not rule out the possibility of investing significantly in scaling up additive manufacturing capabilities in the near- and medium-term future.
