Program - Additive Manufacturing Day


NEW at Turbo Expo – AM3D Day presented by ASME Gas Turbine Segment
Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Register today!

Join us at Turbo Expo for AM3D Day! Learn how additive manufacturing (AM) is impacting the development of gas turbines, its effect on both the development and production of turbine components, and the opportunities for this technology in the gas turbine application. A relatively new technology to the gas turbine industry, AM is having important impacts on the development of gas turbine components and potential impacts on gas turbine repair.

AM is already revolutionizing the gas turbine industry by:

  • Enabling new design and material freedoms
  • Shortening the development cycle of gas turbines
  • Reducing prototype and testing costs and producing parts more easily
  • Increasing speed-to-market
  • Enabling increased performance through novel design

The day will consist of a plenary session from industry leaders, disciplinary panel sessions, and a specialized exhibit.

Additive Manufacturing Plenary Panel Session: "Disruptive Technologies and Accelerating Innovation in Gas Turbines – The Role of Additive Manufacturing"

Thomas W. Prete, Vice President, Engineering, Pratt & Whitney
Markus Seibold, Power & Gas Business Lead for Additive Manufacturing, Siemens
Mike Aller, The Consortium for Advanced Production & Engineering of Gas Turbines
Rob Gorham, Director of Operations, National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining, America Makes
Kurt Goodwin, GM, Advanced Manufacturing, GE Power
Moderated by: Rich Dennis, U.S. Department of Energy National Technology Laboratory; Karen A. Thole, Pennsylvania State University

Other disciplinary panel will focus on:

  • Processes & Materials for Additive Manufacturing
  • Design & Performance for Additive Manufacturing
  • Challenges and Opportunities in Using AM for Turbine Cooling
  • Combustor/Fuel Injector applications for AM
