Product Design & Development Production Technology for More Efficient Jet Engines Product Design & Development
The goal is to technically implement new concepts for turbo machinery – for engines, among other things – so that they can convert energy more efficiently. Furthermore, CO2 emissions are reduced and resources conserved.
scientists can produce components that previously could not be manufactured. This is possible, for instance, with Selective Laser Melting (SLM). Step by step laser radiation is scanned across a powder bed and traces out the form of the component within this specific layer. Wherever the laser radiation impacts the powder, the powder initially melts and then solidifies to form a solid mass. In this way, the component is built-up layer by layer. Until now, the parts were subtractively produced by e.g. milling. This involved a great loss of material, of course, and there are geometric restrictions in the production of certain geometries.
