For the best experience we suggest that you download the newest version of a supported browser: Internet Explorer, Siemens received an award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for its achievement with the 3D printed and fully tested gas turbine blades. The blades were installed in a Siemens SGT-400 industrial gas turbine with a capacity of 13 megawatts. Made out of a powder of high performing polycrystalline superalloy, the AM turbine blades can endure high pressure, hot temperatures and the rotational forces of the turbine’s high speed operation. Inside a turbine, high pressures, tremendous centrifugal forces, and high temperatures prevail. The blades survived testing under full-load engine conditions. The company was honored for the worldwide first successful test of gas turbine blades manufactured with Additive Manufacturing (AM).

The company successfully validated multiple AM printed turbine blades with a conventional blade The company successfully validated multiple AM printed turbine blades with a conventional blade design at full engine conditions. Siemens Power and Gas recently announced a new breakthrough in the 3D printing of gas turbine blades. James Daley (at left) a former participant of the Dream It Do It program, displays a 3D printed model of an actual gas turbine created by Siemens Energy in Olean. It has been additively manufacturing hot rotating parts for use in its gas turbines, and the company has now gathered more than 110,000 hours of engine experience with 3D-printed gas turbine parts in fully operational power plants. Siemens completed full load engine tests for 3D-printed gas turbine blades. German engineering group Siemens has run a successful test of power generation gas turbine blades produced wholly by metal-based 3D printing by UK-based Materials Solutions, which it bought last year. Please note that there might be constraints on site display and … Siemens and Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology have achieved a faster production process based on selective laser melting for speeding up the prototyping of big, complex metal parts in gas turbine engines. Siemens received an award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for its technological achievement with its 3D-printed and tested gas turbine blades. Siemens innovative 3-dimensional blades and vanes are state-of-the-art for new Siemens gas turbines of the SGT5-2000E (V94.2) and SGT6-2000E (V84.2). The first 3D-printed burner tips for gas turbines were produced in adapted printers by the EOS company in 2013. Siemens finished its first full load engine tests for conventional and completely new designed gas turbine blades produced using AM. Siemens has achieved a breakthrough by finishing its first full load engine tests for gas turbine blades completely produced using Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology. In 2017, the company used 3D printing to develop and test functional prototypes of gas turbine blades – small parts assembled around the periphery of a turbine rotor to guide the gas flow.
