ICTM International Center for Turbomachinery Manufacturing in Aachen
Turbomachinery is a key enabler to increase efficiency and to reduce emissions for multiple applications such as aeronautics, power generation, oil and gas production or in the automotive industry.
Aim of the ICTM Aachen is to speed up technological innovations and to transfer them into industrial applications. It will employ the full technology portfolio of all of its members to provide excellent R&D for turbomachinery manufacturing.
The ICTM Aachen offers an integrated and interdisciplinary platform which will focus on production and repair technologies primarily, providing R&D solutions in the full range of competencies of the participating research institutes. As turbomachinery manufacturing is a highly interdisciplinary market the ICTM Aachen will also pursue R&D approaches geared to design trends and the use of advanced materials.
The ICTM International Center for Turbomachinery Manufacturing in Aachen was founded as a joint initiative of the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering WZL of the RWTH Aachen University as well as the Chair of Laser Technology LLT of the RWTH Aachen University.
