Production Technology for More Efficient Jet Engines

Press Release of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, issued May 09, 2014

Aircrafts have to be more efficient – a crucial point when it comes to the design of jet engines. However, in the design of the components, the engineers also need to consider whether these can be economically produced. Yet, a new process chain provides more design freedom and allows a more efficient production as well as repair processes.

Competitive advantages in turbomachinery design and manufacture: Fraunhofer launches a cluster of innovation for resource efficiency in energy and mobility

Press Release of the Fraunhofer IPT and the Fraunhofer ILT, issued March 07, 2013

In the medium and long term, power generation will still be mainly dependent on fossil fuels, since renewables can only cover percentages of today’s electricity demand. This is the reason why it is essential for the automotive, aerospace and energy sectors to develop new emerging concepts that are capable of significant decreases in the emissions and reductions in the fuel consumption.
