GE Aviation and DM3D to ramp up 3D-printed fan blade production for GE9X engine
Using direct metal deposition, DM3D can create near-net shape fan blades and more closely monitor the height and temperature of the melt pool while manufacturing them. GE Aviation is working with DM3D to develop this process for full scale GE9X production in 2020.

We are very saddened by the recent loss of Prof. Jyoti Mazumder who passed away on April 10, 2021.  Prof. Jyoti Mazumder was renowned for his work in 3D Printing and was the inventor of Direct Metal Deposition (DMD). He was also the founder of the POM Group which was a R&D laboratory that expanded the DMD technology and is presently the process that our company uses today. Prof. Mazumder was a Robert H. Lurie Professor of Engineering in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Director of Center for Laser Aided Intelligent Manufacturing at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

Prof. Mazumder leaves behind a long history of excellence where he was an elected member of the USA National Academy of Engineering and foreign fellow of Indian National Academy of Engineering. Prof. Mazumder received his bachelor's degree in metallurgical engineering from Calcutta University (now the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology) in 1972. He earned his diploma and Ph.D. in process metallurgy from Imperial College, London, in 1978. Prof. Mazumder was a creative inventor, scholar and educator, prolific author, scientist and mentor to many young engineers.

Prof. Mazumder was a past President of LIA, longtime editor-in-chief of LIA’s flagship publication, the Journal of Laser Applications, and he received the prestigious Arthur Schawlow award.  He received numerous other awards including the fellowship in the National Academy of Engineering in the USA. 


Prof. Mazumder was respectful and kind to all and touched the lives of many and will be greatly missed.
