ICTM Conference 2019: Digitization emerges as an engineering trend for turbomachinery construction

12.12.2018

Digitalization of the production process has allowed turbomachinery components to be manufactured more efficiently than ever before: The core question to be addressed at what is now the fifth ICTM Conference to take place 6 and 7 February 2019 in Aachen and hosted by the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT and for Production Technology IPT is “How do high levels of data consistency, continuity and availability along with more robust processes and greater production transparency result in a more economically efficient process chain?” Online enrolment for conference attendance is now open and there is an early-bird discount for bookings made by 17 December 2018.

The event, organized by the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT and for Production Technology IPT, offers participants the very latest information and the opportunity to discuss new developments and trends in the turbomachinery sector – from the application of Industry 4.0 technologies in component manufacture and process monitoring through new methods of high-performance machining, additive manufacture and laser-based repair to new materials.


All data is digitally captured and stored in the cloud – one of the central topics of the ICTM Conference is how the digital twin accompanies the component through its entire life cycle.

A number of high-ranking speakers from industry and from leading research facilities including Lars Wagner from MTU Aero Engines AG, Dr. Bernd Burbaum, Siemens AG, Dr. Michael Gorelik from the Federal Aviation Administration (USA), Florian Reichert, Schunk Kohlenstofftechnik GmbH and Dr. Jochen Kaiser from Bauhaus Luftfahrt e.V will be presenting papers on both days of the conference.

Comprehensive program for experts from industry and research

Alongside the presentations, providers from the turbomachinery sector will be presenting new products and services at an industrial exhibition to be held at Eurogress Aachen. Six leading companies from the turbomachinery manufacture and repair sector, including Mitsubishi Electric Europe B.V., KUKA Industries GmbH & Co. KG, Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. and Siemens AG have already signed up as exhibitors. Additional exhibition space is available and any companies wishing to reserve this are asked to contact the organizers.

Additionally, conference attendees will have an opportunity to discuss the challenges facing their own sector with experts from industry and science as well as to put forward their own ideas and approaches to meeting these challenges. Presentations in the shop floors and laboratories of the Fraunhofer ILT and IPT will ensure that there is a strong focus on industrial practice: Those attending the event will be able to gain first-hand experience of applications integrating new technology developments.

The International Center for Turbomachinery ICTM Aachen is a joint initiative of the Fraunhofer IPT, Fraunhofer ILT and the Machine Tool Laboratory WZL and of the Chair of Digital Additive Production DAP at the RWTH University, Aachen. It reflects the entire technology portfolio of the institutes and its mission is to provide first-class research and development for turbomachinery manufacture and repair.

The ICTM Partner Community was initiated in collaboration with partners from industry. Its mission: to accelerate technological innovations and transfer them to industrial application.

Im Focus: Flying Optical Cats for Quantum Communication

Dead and alive at the same time? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have implemented Erwin Schrödinger’s paradoxical gedanken experiment employing an entangled atom-light state.

In 1935 Erwin Schrödinger formulated a thought experiment designed to capture the paradoxical nature of quantum physics. The crucial element of this gedanken...

Im Focus: Nanocellulose for novel implants: Ears from the 3D-printer

Cellulose obtained from wood has amazing material properties. Empa researchers are now equipping the biodegradable material with additional functionalities to produce implants for cartilage diseases using 3D printing.

It all starts with an ear. Empa researcher Michael Hausmann removes the object shaped like a human ear from the 3D printer and explains:

Im Focus: Elucidating the Atomic Mechanism of Superlubricity

The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.

One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...

Im Focus: Mission completed – EU partners successfully test new technologies for space robots in Morocco

Just in time for Christmas, a Mars-analogue mission in Morocco, coordinated by the Robotics Innovation Center of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) as part of the SRC project FACILITATORS, has been successfully completed. SRC, the Strategic Research Cluster on Space Robotics Technologies, is a program of the European Union to support research and development in space technologies. From mid-November to mid-December 2018, a team of more than 30 scientists from 11 countries tested technologies for future exploration of Mars and Moon in the desert of the Maghreb state.

Close to the border with Algeria, the Erfoud region in Morocco – known to tourists for its impressive sand dunes – offered ideal conditions for the four-week...
