ICTM Conference 2017 in Aachen: Production technology for turbomachine manufacturing of the future
“Digital production” is increasingly turning into an integral part of successful turbomachinery manufacturing: How digitalization approaches can enhance efficient manufacturing and lifetime of modern turbomachinery components will be the central aspect of the fourth “ICTM Conference” on February 15 and 16, 2017, in Aachen. Online registration for the conference is open now and an early bird discount is granted until December 16, 2016.
The event, which is organized by the Fraunhofer Institutes for Production Technolgy IPT und Laser Technology ILT, provides attendants of the turbomachinery industry with current information and the opportunity to exchange about new developments around the trend topics “Advanced Machining”, “Digitalization”, “Industrie 4.0” and “Additive Manufacturing”. Both conference days will feature a number of highly ranked speakers from industry and science, e.g. Dr. Rainer Martens from the MTU Aero Engines AG, Munich, Prof. Ingomar Kelbassa from the Siemens AG, Berlin, Dr. Volker Kreidler from the SAP SE, Walldorf, Dr. Alan Epstein from Pratt & Whitney, U.S.A, and Stéphane Abed from Poly-Shape SAS, France.
Extensive program for experts from industry and science
The presentations will be accompanied by an industrial exhibition where suppliers of the turbomachinery industry will present new products and services at the Eurogress Aachen. Eleven leading companies have already been confirmed as exhibitors, including the SLM Solutions AG, the EOS GmbH and the Siemens AG. Further exhibitor booths can still be reserved via the organizers.
Moreover, the attendants of the conference have the opportunity to interact in face-to-face exchange with experts from industry and science and to discuss specific challenges, problems, ideas and solutions. The practical aspect will be covered during live presentations in the facilities of the Fraunhofer ILT and IPT: Here, particular applications of the latest laser and machining technologies will be demonstrated first-hand.
The ICTM International Center for Turbomachinery Manufacturing in Aachen was initiated 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. 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.
