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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
