Combustors are fundamental to turbomachinery performance, by achieving the greatest possible fuel efficiency and power output. This depends on internal structures that promote combustion and burn clean, which requires the highest quality components made of strong, heat-resistant superalloys.
All of this is now possible thanks to direct metal 3D printing solutions and turbomachinery expertise from 3D Systems. Manufacturers can design monolithic combustor components that burn cleaner than ever before. Fewer components reduce manufacturing costs and eliminating complex assemblies increases reliability. In addition, these optimized products can be developed in far less time to deliver more effective components to market faster.
