Lübeck, June 11, 2018. TURBO Expo, the lead­ing trade fair for tur­bo­ma­chin­ery pro­fes­sion­als, will take place for the first time in Lillestrøm (Oslo) from June 12 to 14. The SLM So­lu­tions Group AG from Lübeck will pre­sent the en­tire port­fo­lio of metal-based ad­di­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nol­ogy at booth 215.

The three-day fair is a must-at­tend event for lead­ing pro­fes­sion­als and de­ci­sion-mak­ers in the in­dus­try, whose in­no­va­tions and know-how are con­tribut­ing to shap­ing the fu­ture of the tur­bo­ma­chin­ery in­dus­try. TURBO EXPO has al­ready been pro­vid­ing unique net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for trade fair vis­i­tors from the fields of aero­nau­tics, space, me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing and en­ergy econ­omy since 1954. The focus is on MRO (Main­te­nance, Re­pair and Over­haul) this year with the lat­est trends in the fields of dig­i­tal­iza­tion and ad­di­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing.

Nor­we­gian, Scan­di­na­vian and glob­ally op­er­at­ing com­pa­nies can ob­tain in­for­ma­tion at trade fair booth 215 from SLM So­lu­tions in Lillestrøm about the per­for­mance ca­pa­bil­ity of metal-based ad­di­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nol­ogy. The ex­perts for 3D print­ing will pre­sent the com­plete process chain (closed loop) of gen­er­a­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing from data gen­er­a­tion and melt­ing to pow­der re­cov­ery and re­pro­cess­ing.

Watch the ASME Turbo Expo 2018:

With a good mix­ture of knowl­edge trans­fer and net­work­ing, SLM So­lu­tions wants to raise aware­ness fur­ther for the topic of ad­di­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing in Nor­way. Cen­tral to the par­tic­i­pa­tion of SLM So­lu­tions is the pre­sen­ta­tion of SLM® tech­nol­ogy, processes, ma­chines and ma­te­ri­als.

We show in many prac­ti­cal ex­am­ples how com­po­nents made of metal pow­der can be melted layer by layer in the se­lec­tive laser melt­ing pro­ce­dure to be­come sta­ble, geo­met­ri­cally com­plex struc­tures as well as how com­po­nents can be op­ti­mized and com­plete com­po­nents pro­duced. In ad­di­tion, we are pre­sent­ing the in­te­gra­tion of SLM® man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nol­ogy in lean, com­pet­i­tive pro­duc­tion processes. This re­sults in a sim­pli­fied man­u­fac­tur­ing process, lower costs per part and shorter lead times. These are re­quire­ments, which are also in­creas­ingly cited in the op­ti­miza­tion of tur­bo­ma­chin­ery,”
