ICTM Conference

Higher levels of efficiency and lower emissions are the key objectives in the development of modern turbo engines. This is why highly heat-resistant materials and complex, integrated components as well as production digitization are so important. Thus, companies need new approaches along the entire lifecycle to meet future challenges in manufacturing and repair.

How to organize the digital change in production and realize its benefits is one of the key aspects of the future challenges for turbomachinery manufacturers.

In 2017 the sessions therefore focused on major trends such as advanced machining, digitization, industry 4.0 and additive manufacturing. Highly ranked speakers could be attracted – the highlights were

  • Stéphane Abed (Poly-Shape SAS, Salon de Provence (FR)),
  • Dr. Sanjay M. Correa (GE Aviation, Cincinnati (US)),
  • Dr. Alan Epstein (Pratt & Whitney, East Hartford (US)),
  • Prof. Ingomar Kelbassa (Siemens AG, Berlin (DE)),
  • Dr. Volker Kreidler (SAP SE, Walldorf (DE)),
  • Dr. Rainer Martens (MTU Aero Engines AG, München (DE)).

Now we are looking forward to the 5th ICTM Aachen on February 6-7, 2019. The topics will be laser and machining technologies, design and automation as well as future materials. In addition we will do live presentations at the Fraunhofer facilities.

Comprehensive Program

In practical lectures experts from both, industry and research, will present and discuss current market developments, new product concepts and challenges of manufacturing technologies. The focus of the two-day conference is on the latest trends in Laser and Machining Technologies, Design and Automation as well as Future Materials.

Live Demonstrations

As a particular application of these technologies, their integration into a continuous repair process chain for turbine components will be demonstrated. During a tour of the facilities at Fraunhofer IPT and ILT, we will provide the opportunity to discuss current R&D projects and results with the experts.
