Web Abstract

We propose the application of additive manufacturing to land based turbine components with complex geometries and conventional multi-step manufacturing processes in a consortium approach. The consortium consists of researchers in the Indian Institute of Science, a Bangalore based additive manufacturing industry partner with demonstrated experience in process design and build of complex geometries based on powder bed fusion by laser sources with materials such as titanium and nickel base alloys and specialty steel, and a Bangalore located leading industrial steam tribune manufacturer providing solutions to 100MW. We have identified specific parts and materials for this exercise that are made in production by extensive subtractive machining from forged barstock. Our proposal lies in the domain of application engineering, and will involve process optimization, development of a property data base, demonstration of consistency, cost benefit analysis and development of standards for the application of an additive process to an industrial part.
