(PowerMag)  3D printing technology is making it easier to repair or replace the moving parts of power plants. The use of additive manufacturing to solve complex problems for gas turbines is gaining steam in the power industry.
Siemens announced the first 3-D printed component for a Siemens heavy-duty gas turbine entered into commercial operation in July 2016. In May 2016, GE Oil & Gas opened an additive manufacturing line to 3D print components. “We use laser technology to 3-D print fuel burners for gas turbines combustion chambers in our new additive manufacturing line in Talamona.”
