“Digital production” is increasingly turning into an integral part of successful turbomachinery manufacturing: How digitalization approaches can enhance efficient manufacturing and lifetime of modern turbomachinery components will be the central aspect of the fourth “ICTM Conference” on February 15 and 16, 2017, in Aachen. Online registration for the conference is open now, with an early bird price until December 16, 2016.
The event, which is organized by the Fraunhofer Institutes for Production Technolgy IPT and Laser Technology ILT, provides attendants of the turbomachinery industry with current information and the opportunity to discuss new developments around the major topics “Advanced Machining”, “Digitalization”, “Industrie 4.0” and “Additive Manufacturing”.
Both conference days will feature a number of highly ranked speakers from industry and science, e.g. Dr. Rainer Martens from the MTU Aero Engines AG, Munich, Prof Ingomar Kelbassa from the Siemens AG, Berlin, Dr. Volker Kreidler from the SAP SE, Walldorf, Dr. Alan Epstein from Pratt & Whitney, U.S.A, and Stéphane Abed from Poly-Shape SAS, France.
Extensive program for experts from industry and science
The presentations will be accompanied by an industrial exhibition where leading companies will present new products and services at the Eurogress Aachen. Eleven companies have already been confirmed as exhibitors, including the SLM Solutions AG, the EOS GmbH and the Siemens AG. Further exhibitor booths can still be reserved via the organizers.
Moreover, the attendants of the conference have the opportunity to interact in face-to-face exchange with experts from industry and science and to discuss specific challenges, problems, ideas and solutions. The practical aspect will be covered during live presentations in the facilities of the Fraunhofer ILT and IPT: Here, particular applications of the latest laser and machining technologies will be demonstrated first-hand.
The ICTM International Center for Turbomachinery Manufacturing in Aachen was initiated as a joint initiative of the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering WZL of the RWTH Aachen University as well as the Chair of Laser Technology LLT of the RWTH Aachen University.
Aim of the ICTM Aachen is to speed up technological innovations and to transfer them into industrial applications. It will employ the full technology portfolio of all of its members to provide excellent R&D for turbomachinery manufacturing.

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...
Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...
For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
