Fast, efficient, flexible: AM makes the differenceBe it rapid prototyping or manufacturing parts for aero-derivative, gas and steam turbines or compressors, they can be designed faster, with increased flexibility, better materials, and optimized efficiency. This way, 3D printing enables cutting edge technologies with reduced time-to-market and quick upgrading of existing assets. Being both a pioneer and a leader in the industrialization of AM, Siemens Energy is in an excellent position to give its customers the products and tools they need for the next generation of power products.
Additive Manufacturing Enables Advanced Blade Tip Repair and Upgrade
Additive Manufacturing and repair experts at Siemens Energy have developed a solution to upgrade turbine blades instead of just repairing them. Specifically, it is now possible to implement cooling structures in critical areas to prevent blade tip failure.
