How to derive and quantify SLM-potential of components?


Challenge and Motivation

  • Use capabilities of SLM to improve functionality or to reduce costs for production or repair applications
  • Identification of components for SLM is challenging: Freedom of design vs Process restrictions


  • Develop general methodology to evaluate SLM-potential of components in turbomachinery for production and repair applications
  • Develop a catalogue with principal solutions to access SLM-potential
