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: MOF@SAW: Nanoquakes and molecular sponges for weighing and separating tiny masses

Augsburg chemists and physicists report how they have succeeded in the extremely difficult separation of hydrogen and deuterium in a gas mixture.

Thanks to the Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) technology developed here and already widely used, the University of Augsburg is internationally recognized as the...

Im Focus: Better thermal conductivity by adjusting the arrangement of atoms

Adjusting the thermal conductivity of materials is one of the challenges nanoscience is currently facing. Together with colleagues from the Netherlands and Spain, researchers from the University of Basel have shown that the atomic vibrations that determine heat generation in nanowires can be controlled through the arrangement of atoms alone. The scientists will publish the results shortly in the journal Nano Letters.

In the electronics and computer industry, components are becoming ever smaller and more powerful. However, there are problems with the heat generation. It is...

Im Focus: First-ever visualizations of electrical gating effects on electronic structure

Scientists have visualised the electronic structure in a microelectronic device for the first time, opening up opportunities for finely-tuned high performance electronic devices.

Physicists from the University of Warwick and the University of Washington have developed a technique to measure the energy and momentum of electrons in...

Im Focus: Megakaryocytes act as „bouncers“ restraining cell migration in the bone marrow

Scientists at the University Würzburg and University Hospital of Würzburg found that megakaryocytes act as “bouncers” and thus modulate bone marrow niche properties and cell migration dynamics. The study was published in July in the Journal “Haematologica”.

Hematopoiesis is the process of forming blood cells, which occurs predominantly in the bone marrow. The bone marrow produces all types of blood cells: red...

Im Focus: Artificial neural network resolves puzzles from condensed matter physics: Which is the perfect quantum theory?

For some phenomena in quantum many-body physics several competing theories exist. But which of them describes a quantum phenomenon best? A team of researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Harvard University in the United States has now successfully deployed artificial neural networks for image analysis of quantum systems.

Is that a dog or a cat? Such a classification is a prime example of machine learning: artificial neural networks can be trained to analyze images by looking...
