Additive Manufacturing WG
ETN Additive Manufacturing Working Group
The objective of ETN’s Additive Manufacturing Working Group is to strengthen the cooperation between stakeholders of the turbomachinery value chain on additive manufacturing (AM) topics. Members of the Working Group benefit from cooperating on AM practices and exchanging knowledge and experiences on the added value that AM could generate, such as short delivery time, efficiency increase by optimised design and delivery of obsolete or “urgent” parts to shorten maintenance outages and overhauls.
The current activities include AM equipment and process database, product quality and control, and R&D roadmaps.
One of the outcomes of the AM WG meeting in October 2018 was a decision to draft a booklet on additive manufacturing defects. The booklet “Best practices for defects detection in additively manufactured components in the energy sector” is now available for ETN members (login required).
