The aim of the research project is to develop new additive manufacturing process and components for high-temperature applications in large gas turbines through the lens of sustainable product development.
The project includes various technology fields, additive processes, and materials. The project extends the research from phase one and explores efficient post-processing of AM components, including those that are robot-supported. The design for additive manufacturing (DFAM) approach will be supported by other AM processes and integrated into a software environment.
In addition, there is a strong focus on sustainable manufacturing whereby ecological aspects, in terms of life cycle analyses, are considered early in the design of the components and along the value chain up to their use, thus guiding decisions for future components in the field of energy
Eleven project partners are working together as part of the Werner-von-Siemens Center for Industry and Science Consortium. The project includes partners across different areas of expertise, including renowned scientific institutions, established industry subject matter experts, and exciting, agile young companies.
