generalelectric Our latest spot, “Time Upon A Once” is dedicated to seeing the world in ways new. From cities that run on #jetengine technology to lights that can talk, you’ll see what we mean by “imagination at work.” Check it out on the #GE #YouTube channel. #tech 2d

generalelectric What does a digital #wind farm look like? On the outside, it looks the same as a regular wind farm. But it's what's on the inside that matters. GE's predictive analytics software Predix works with sensors on 2MW #windturbines to search for issues such as blade misalignments, weather anomalies and tower vibrations. The software - or brains of the machine - will run in the background making real-time adjustments to prevent problems before they even happen. #IndustrialInternet #tech #power #energy 3d

generalelectric If a wind turbine could talk, what would it say? To find out, we’re introducing the Digital Wind Farm, a connected and adaptable #wind energy ecosystem that marries world-class turbines with software and analytics. Not only does this boost annual #energy output by 10 percent, but it allows these machines to communicate with people. It’s all part of the #IndustrialInternet, which is connecting machines to people to increase efficiency and change the way the world works. Read more about the next generation of brilliant wind turbines at GE Reports. #GE #WindTurbine #Tech #BigData 5d

generalelectric Behind-the-scenes at the #GE #Aviation Test Operations facility in Peebles, Ohio where a #GEnx gets manufactured on the factory floor. Not only is it the quietest, most passenger-friendly #jetengine, but the advanced GE propulsion technology improves performance and lowers maintenance costs. #Regram from @GEAviation. #avgeek #tech 1w

generalelectric Considered the father of modern science, Galileo Galilei was an Italian astronomer whose thinking revolutionized our understanding of the #cosmos. He was the first to use the telescope to systematically observe celestial objects, and is credited with the discovery of the four satellites of Jupiter. But perhaps he is best known for standing firm in his belief that the sun was the center of the universe even when everyone else disagreed. His steadfast belief in the power of #science, as well as the body of work he produced, has become a source of #inspiration for millions of people around the world. #Quote #Inspiration #Motivation #GalileoGalilei 2w

generalelectric Today marks the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day, a day that marked the end of WWII and the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany. As history remembers the efforts of the soldiers, we also take a look back at Marie Kappa, a government ordnance inspector stationed at #GE Erie Works. The efforts of Kappa and millions of others paid off, as the deadliest war in history ended in European theater. Above is an image of Kappa, peering down the barrel of a Howitzer artillery piece in March 1942. #VEDay #history 2w

generalelectric Nothing but blue skies and the #GEnx! Developed for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Boeing 747-8, this #jetengine is the fastest- selling engine in #GE #Aviation history. Photo taken at the testing facility in Peebles, OH. #Stayfly with @GEAviation. #badass #avgeek # 3w

generalelectric 18 years before George Lucas' AT-AT walkers debuted on the big
screen, #GE #engineers were working on a machine that looked strikingly similar. In the 1960s, through a contract with the U.S. Army, GE developed the Cybernetic Anthropomorphous Machine, or Walking Truck. The lumbering machine was maneuvered with hand and foot controls. Unfortunately, these controls fatigued operators and were impractical for prolonged use on the battlefield, so the project was discontinued. Today it lives on in history as an example of real life sci-fi. #MayThe4ThBeWithYou #StarWarsDay

generalelectric Besides being strong enough to pull upwards of 130 rail cars, the Tier 4 Evolution Series #locomotive also carries 250 sensors and enough processing power to crunch 150,000 data points per minute. Photo taken by @seenewphoto. #rail #data #IndustrialInternet #transportation 3w

generalelectric GE Engineer, Richard Evans, inspects the front engine cab where the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) is located. The EGR is a key technology that recirculates a portion of the engine’s exhaust gas back into the engine cylinders reducing Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions by 76%. This is the only locomotive engine to meet the EPA’s Tier 4 requirements without any after-treatment technology.

generalelectric Watch out! GE’s Tier 4 #locomotive flies by on the Train Dynamic Track at the Transportation Technology Center outside Pueblo, CO. This locomotive features a dynamic braking technology to help reduce wheel and brake wear by an estimated 20-40%. Video by @seenewphoto. #speed #rail #GETier4 #🚂 4w

generalelectric Turn your ideas into experiments, and your #experiments into #inventions. Thomas Edison held a determination to use the ideas he had, and find the answer to problems no matter how many experiments it took to yield a result. Edison remains one of the most prolific inventors in #history, holding 1,093 US patents to his name. #Quote #GE #inspiration 1mon
  •   purllamb You are the worst company ever!!! Your dishwasher flooded my house twice!! We have small children and a house full of water and not once did I receive a call from my case manager. Not only that but your electrical insurance company didn't send any one to help with the flooding. Horrible!!! Horrible company. On top of it all I still have to pay for parts, labor and a new dishwasher replacement after you have cause a massive damage in my home. This has been going on for over 5 weeks. 4w
  •   urgentfury I love experimenting 4w

  •   expee Thomas Edison. Great inventor. Greatest marketer. But why does one other name always come to mind when I hear Thomas Edison? Why do I always think of Nikola #Tesla? 4w
  •   the2ndsteele @blairw24 lolllll but still a great guy! 4w
  •   alibeletic Hello. I am doing an art project installing lights into boulders - I'm looking for a contact at GE about getting some lights loaned/ donated. Can you give me your media contact? Thanks so much. All the best, ali 4w

generalelectric Happy #EarthDay! Today, we’re celebrating by #upcycling incandescent light bulbs into terrariums and vases. Did you know that replacing traditional incandescents with #LEDs can reduce your energy consumption by 50 to 70 percent? By switching how we light up our lives, we can make every day Earth Day. Share with us how you're celebrating using the hashtag #EarthDayGeek. 🌍 1mon

generalelectric TTCI Industrial Electrician, Jeremy Garcia, pressure washes and degreases #GE’s Tier 4 Evolution Series with a treatment called “hotsy” at the Transportation Technology Center where it’s currently stationed and undergoing validation tests. In keeping with the EPA’s latest emission standards, the Tier 4 reduces emissions and requires no after-treatment systems.

generalelectric Look out for the tumbleweed! Photographer @VincentLaForet chases GE’s Tier 4 #locomotive as it races down the Transit Test Track at the Transportation Technology Center. Over its lifetime, this locomotive will travel approximately 3.4 million to 4.8 million miles. #GETier4 #tech #badass #machine 1mon

generalelectric A behind-the-scenes look at photographer @VincentLaForet as he takes to the air to capture #GE’s Evolution Series Tier 4 #locomotive. Powered by GE’s 12-cylinder engine, this machine is making history as the first mainline locomotive to meet the EPA’s Tier 4 emission standards, which call for the single-largest emission reduction in rail history. #GETier4 #tech #innovation 1mon

generalelectric The video above is from one of Thomas Edison’s early films from 1894. The 23 second film features two #cats boxing, complete with custom-made gloves and boxing ring. According to the Library of Congress, the footage was filed by Raff & Gamon, Edison’s distributors at the time, under the description, “A very interesting and amusing subject.” #tbt #throwback #vintage #history 1mon

generalelectric Considered one of the fathers of industrial research, Willis R. Whitney founded #GE’s Research Laboratory in the early 1900s. Here, Willis led a team of gifted scientists, including Nobel laureate Irving Langmuir. This group of researchers worked on some of the most important projects of the time, including X- ray technology and the wireless telegraph. The laboratory gained worldwide reputation for the quality of its work, proving the value of organized #research. Whitney’s influence extended far beyond GE as he inspired generations of researchers, encouraging them to remain curious. #quote #inspiration 2mon
