This two-day symposium on “Advanced Manufacturing and Repair for Gas Turbines” will focus on modern additive manufacturing (AM) and repair technologies that are successfully demonstrated and applied on a daily basis to aero and industrial gas turbine (GT) engine business.

The first day will present two applied technical tutorials: (1) Additive Manufacturing for New Designs and (2) Additive Manufacturing and Advanced Repair for Gas Turbine Components. In the evening, attendees can participate in a 2-hour technical tour to visit an advanced manufacturing facility.

The second day offers selected presentations from industry and academia on AM applications to aero and industrial manufacturing and repairing GT components.
