In 2016, Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE), inaugurated two new component production lines at its Turbomachinery & Process Solutions (TPS) plant in Talamona in northern Italy. Over the past two years, both production lines have reported an increase in production capacity. The fuel nozzle production line utilizes two anthropomorphic robots capable of employing 10 different technologies, including electrical discharge machining, measurement and laser beam welding. The additive manufacturing line uses laser technology to 3-D print fuel burners for gas turbine combustion chambers.

In addition to cutting costs and boosting production, BHGE is promoting the development of new technologies in manufacturing processes to reduce carbon emissions.
