Flexible and near-net-shape generative manufacturing chains and repair techniques for complex shaped aero engine parts

Objective

Three major aero engine and component manufacturers (OEMs), two repair excellence centres as end users, six industrial partners as systems engineering and powder providers together with seven universities and research institutes have joined their multidisciplinary expertise and resources in materials science, laser manufacturing technique and sensorics and in design, manufacturing and repair of aero engine parts in the FANTASIA proposal.

The aim of FANTASIA is to contribute to winning global leadership for European aeronautics by developing new flexible and near-net-shape generative manufacturing chains and repair techniques based on Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) and Direct Laser Forming (DLF). The impact on the aero engine industry are to have much more design freedom, to decrease time efforts in the whole life-cycle of a part starting with the design and/or re-design phase, subsequent manufacturing and yielding in the repair phase and to save production and raw material costs due to reduced time effort and r aw material quantity to be spent by generative manufacturing.

This will minimize the cost and lead-time due to reduced market response times from manufacturing to design and design to manufacturing. The technology to be developed will trigger a quantum step in cost reduction for design or re-design, manufacturing and repair of new or existing aero engine parts.
