Siemens is a winner of the international 3D Printing Industry Award in the category "3D Printing application of the year". The company was honored for the worldwide first successful test of gas turbine blades manufactured with Additive Manufacturing (AM).
Siemens has had a breakthrough with 3D-printed gas turbine blades in 3D. For the first time, a team of experts has tested at full load output in a gas turbine gas turbine blades that have been exclusively manufactured with additive technology.
Modern 3D printing technologies and other additive manufacturing technologies simplify product development, and they facilitate completely new products. With a special variant of laser direct structuring (LDS), laser specialist LPKF Laser & Electronics AG extends their range of functions.
The three project partners airbus, Concept Laser and Laser Zentrum Nord are selected for the „Deutsche Zukunftspreis“. The topic is the development of parts for the aircraft using additive manufacturing
Applications at manufacturers of die casting machines and tools show how additive manufacturing proves its strengths exactly when conventional technology reaches its limits.
The industrial implementation of additive manufacturing is a major goal of the Additive Manufacturing Association. The various application sectors present successful sample applications on this page. Many of them have been showcased at the "User Case Area" at Formnext in Frankfurt by members of the association. The Additive Manufacturing Association within VDMA (German Mechanical Engineering Association) is honorary sponsor of the trade fair Formnext.
