Revolving on New Technologies!

04.08.2010
International Conference on Turbomachinery Manufacturing ICTM February 23 to 24, 2011 in Aachen

The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT and the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, as organizers, are inviting companies from airplane construction and energy technology to exchange experiences and to discuss current trends at the 1st International Conference on Turbomachinery Manufacturing from February 23 to 24, 2001 in Aachen. The focus lies on innovative procedures for the measurement, manufacturing and repair of modern turbomachines.

Society’s demand for both energy and mobility is growing. To cover this, turbomachines are playing an increasingly important role – they generate energy by burning fossil fuels. For example, in power plants, gas and steam turbines drive generators, thus producing electrical energy. In airplanes, turbines deliver the necessary thrust. Various studies forecast that the installed capacity for the generation of electrical energy will constantly increase by 2.5 to 3.5 percent annually up to 2030. In view of the changes in the world climate, current discussions are emphasizing the need for optimal and efficient processes for power generation.

In view of sustainability as well as of the growing pricing pressure upon OEMs, decisive elements to address these topics in the production chain include the integrative and cost efficient development, manufacture and repair of rotating components for gas and steam turbines as well as for compressors.

Therefore, experts from the industry and science will intensively discuss new product concepts and appropriate manufacturing technologies at the 1st International Conference on Turbomachinery Manufacturing (ICTM) on February 23 and 24, 2011 in Aachen. This conference aims to illuminate new perspectives for interesting markets and possible solutions for technological challenges. Specialists will lecture on innovative solutions in the mechanical and laser-based manufacture or repair, and will display new measurement-based applications. Furthermore, aspects of IT integration, the so-called CAx technologies, will be examined. A special highlight – the integration of these technologies in a closed repair process chain for turbine components – will be demonstrated. During a guided tour through both Fraunhofer Institutes ILT and IPT, the conference participants will have the opportunity to gather information on current R&D projects dealing with these topics and to talk with the project leaders about the results thus reached in the surroundings of modern plants.

In order to spur on the development of manufacturing and repair technologies for turbomachines, oriented both to the industry and applications, the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT and for Production Technology IPT together initiated the Fraunhofer Innovation Cluster “Integrative Production Technology for Energy Efficient Turbomachines – TurPro” in 2008, which is endowed with €10.25 million. In an interdisciplinary consortium consisting of numerous industrial partners such as e.g. Rolls-Royce Deutschland, MAN Diesel & Turbo, MTU Aero Engines and Siemens Power Generation, the partners work on R&D projects that touch upon the different, technological core areas. Results of this work also flow into the ICTM Conference as does knowledge from relevant EU-funded joint research projects on high power machining, laser metal deposition and on rapid manufacturing, which are also coordinated by the Fraunhofer Institutes in Aachen.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
