ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING IN TURBOMACHINERIES
Keywords:Additive Manufacturing, Turbomachinery, Sustainable Manufacturing, Selective Laser Melting, Turbine, 3d-Printing
The primary objective of this paper is to discuss the recent advancements of Additive manufacturing in the field of turbomachinery. The most challenging thing in real world is fabricating a large turbine or a propeller with short production run, less tool investment cost and finally less carbon print. Additive manufacturing not only achieves this but also provide several advantages over conventional machining process. This paper aims to elaborate current trends in additive manufacturing methods, history of AM, its advantages and challenges and AM’s role in making the turbomachinery manufacturing easier.
