ASME will present an industry event on March 19 and 20

ASME will present a new industry event, the Advanced Manufacturing and Repair for Gas Turbines Symposium, on March 19 and 20 at the Siemens Conference Center in Berlin and will provide a venue for engineers, designers, researchers, repair professionals and business leaders from the gas turbine community to interact and learn about the latest developments related to advanced manufacturing and repair for the gas turbine industry.

The 2019 symposium program will incorporate case studies from global entities including GE, Siemens, MHI, Solar Turbines, PSM‒Ansaldo and EPRI.

Presentation topics will include cold metal transfer (CMT) additive manufacturing, additively manufactured turbine cooling geometry, additive manufacturing engine component repair, laser powder bed fusion adoption and advancement, additive manufacturing of smart parts for energy system applications, and extending hot section life with advanced material property recovery.

The symposium will also feature a special keynote session with Markus Seibold, vice president of additive manufacturing for Siemens’ Power and Gas Division, on March 20.

The program also includes two tutorials on March 19. “Designing for Metal Additive Manufacturing,” and “Additive Manufacturing and Advanced Repair for Gas Turbine Components”.
