Let ADDere print your Turbine Blades
Turbine blades have to be manufactured to be extremely precise in order to do their job correctly and efficiently. ADDere’s laser-wire additive manufacturing process can produce a stainless steel 1800mm (5ft 11in) tall turbine blade in 30 hours on a single pass, while using only 61kg (135lbs) of stainless steel. The completed turbine blade has a hollow interior and a 5mm wide sidewall, with a height variant of less than 0.5mm from the designed height.
ADDere’s proprietary closed-loop feedback system was instrumental in not only monitoring and maintaining the deposition quality in near real-time but also oversaw the consistent dimensional accuracy during the application of the stainless steel material over the course of the build.
The ADDere laser wire additive manufacturing system produces 3D printed large-scale, near-net-shape parts in various metals including Titanium, Inconel, Stainless Steel and other superalloys, as well as most Ferrous-based metals.
ADDere has these additive manufacturing capabilities as well as many more printing capabilities. Contact us today if your business is interested in 3D-printed stainless turbine blades.
