Siemens to invest €30m in UK 3D printing facility

Siemens believes 3D printing, also called Additive Manufacturing, opens up “new attractive prospects” in the manufacture of gas turbines

Siemens makes first 3D-printed gas turbine blades

Siemens has completed its first full load engine tests for the world’s first 3D-printed gas turbine blades in the UK. It claims to have successfully validated multiple 3D printed blades with a conventional blade design at full engine conditions. That means the components were tested at 13,000 revolutions per minute and temperatures beyond 1,250°C. 3D […]
