Project title: “Development and implementation of an innovative design service for turbojet engines using additive technology and advanced cooling methods”
The aim of the project is to conduct research & development works in order to create a new, global- scale product innovation related to designing turbojet engine components with the use of 3D printing technology.
The innovation will constitute best practices and will be widely used in the aircraft engines.
The project result is a response to the market needs related to the increasing demand for air transport, e.g. shortening the production lead time and providing technologically advanced concepts at a competitive price while maintaining the highest safety standards. A significant benefit to the customers resulting from the additive manufacturing used, is a possible reduction of weight of the entire engine in order to improve its performance and enhancement of the engine components life span through the reduction of connections in the engine modules.
