ICTM Conference 2021 – Save the Date

The 6th ICTM Conference will take place on February 24–25, 2021 in Aachen.

5th ICTM Conference on February 6-7, 2019

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.

Comprehensive Program

In application-related lectures experts from both, industry and research, presented and discussed current market developments, new product concepts and challenges of manufacturing technologies.

In 2019, the sessions of the two-day conference focused on key trends such as:

  •     Industrie 4.0 with Regard to Manufacturing Turbomachinery Parts
  •     Innovative Process Monitoring Systems
  •     Advanced Machining
  •     Innovative and Newly Developed Materials
  •     Additive Manufacturing
  •     Laser Based Repairs
In addition, live presentations were offered at Fraunhofer facilities.

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.

Target Groups

  • Specialists and managers of turbomachine manufacturers, aeronautics and power generation, machine tool and equipment suppliers
  • Design and manufacturing engineers
  • Stakeholders for laser and machining technologies

Venue and Hotels

Aachen is a leading center of excellence for turbomachinery: Its future-looking economic structures and conveniently situated location, where three countries meet, offer the ideal context for a successful conference and industrial cooperations.

A certain contingent of hotel rooms with special negotiated rates will be reserved for the participants of the ICTM – Conference 2021.  


Lectures are presented in English and German with simultaneous interpreting.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the 6th ICTM Conference in Aachen on February 24–25, 2021!
