International Conference on Turbomachinery Manufacturing ─ ICTM ─ February 25 - 26, 2015 in Aachen

Press Release / 12.11.2014

Higher efficiency and lower emissions – these are the key objectives in the development of modern turbomachinery. Heat-resistant materials, complex geometries and integral components are but a few of the features of turbomachines. New approaches are required along the entire life cycle to meet future challenges in manufacturing as well as in maintenance, repair and overhaul.

The »International Conference on Turbomachinery Manufacturing - ICTM« is designated to all stakeholders in the field of turbomachinery for example jet engines in aircrafts and stationary gas turbines in power plants.
As a joint conference of the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology and the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology, the ICTM presents innovative technologies for adaptive process chains. Main topics are

  • Additive manufacture
  • High performance machining
  • Adaptive manufacturing chains
  • Design and Automation

The presentations and live demonstrations will focus on laser and machining technologies as well as metrology and CAx-technologies.

Aachen has become a leading center of excellence for turbomachinery manufacturing. Multiple industrial cooperations within the past few years have been initiated. Outstanding examples are the Fraunhofer Innovation Clusters »TurPro« and »AdaM«. At the conference you will be given the opportunity to participate in the latest results of R&D activities.

We are looking forward to meeting you at the ICTM 2015 in Aachen!
