Production Technology for More Efficient Jet Engines

Press Release / 9.5.2014

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. At the ILA Berlin Air Show from May 20 to 25, Fraunhofer researchers from Aachen, Germany will be presenting several components that have been produced or repaired with the help of this new technology (Hall 6, Stand 6212).
