Lincoln Electric announced that its proprietary, large-scale 3D metal-printing solution has been selected by Bechtel Plant Machinery, Inc. (BPMI) to support U.S. Navy initiatives. Lincoln Electric, from its wire-based 3D metal-printing facility in Cleveland, OH, will print large-scale propulsion components measuring nearly 10-ft. dia. and weighing as much as 20,000 lb. 

“We are proud to continue expanding our network of strategic program partners to the U.S. Navy,” says Barbara Staniscia, BPMI president and general manager. “Metal additive manufacturing is pivotal to driving innovation and supply-chain resiliency, enabling the program to deliver advanced capabilities to the U.S. Navy.”
