Can You Knit a Wind Turbine?: GE Wind Turbine Blades Made From Fabric Aim To Revolutionize Renewable Energy | GE Reports

Can You Knit a Wind Turbine?: GE Wind Turbine Blades Made From Fabric Aim To Revolutionize Renewable Energy | GE Reports | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Contary to popular belief, taking a piano to a fourth-story walk up apartment in New York City may not be the toughest moving job. Consider the wind turbine. The stiff fiberglass blades of the largest turbines span half the length of a football field. Moving them from the factory to the wind farm requires custom cranes, oversize rigs, hours of careful route and traffic planning, and expert drivers to execute precarious turns. What if you could do away with all that and also eliminate the million-dollar molds used to make them for good measure?.......

Taking Care of Business: GE Support, Funding and Billions in Orders Help Grow Small and Mid-Size Companies | GE Reports

Taking Care of Business: GE Support, Funding and Billions in Orders Help Grow Small and Mid-Size Companies | GE Reports | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

When the economy took a hit five years ago, Randy Bentley added a second shift. Bentley is a vice president at Numerical Precision Inc., a machining business that employs some 80 workers in Crosby, Texas, just outside of Houston. Numerical may be a small business but it makes big things like wellhead componenents for GE’s Oil & Gas unit, its largest customer. “We’ve been running two 12-hour shifts close to five years now with no slowdown in sight,” Bentley says. Today he is shopping for quotes to build a new 25,000 square foot plant to add machine capacity, and a new 5,000 square foot office. “I’ve always felt that we had a very loyal relationship with GE, especially with the guys down here in Houston. They’ve always taken care of us in downtimes.”

The Superjet: Engineers at GE Aviation Are Building the Ultimate Jet Engine | GE Reports

The Superjet: Engineers at GE Aviation Are Building the Ultimate Jet Engine | GE Reports | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Jet engines, like people, come in many shapes and sizes. There are sleek and narrow engines called turbojets that generate enormous thrust. Used almost exclusively by the military, they can fly a fighter jet faster than twice the speed of sound, but they also burn a lot of fuel. Engines from another big group, called high-bypass turbofans, are bulkier, slower, but much more fuel efficient. Everybody knows these engines. They are the heavy lifters of commercial aviation that hang from the wings of most passenger and cargo aircraft. They use a large fan at the front of the engine that pulls the plane forward like a powerful propeller.
