Metal DfAM eSeries: Leveraging Design Freedom to Disrupt Power Generation

Roger Smith, Sierra Turbines; Will Hasting, VELO3D; Ryan O’Hara, nTopology

Sierra Turbines recently partnered with VELO3D to print a prototype for their 20-kilowatt microturbine engine with a unicore in Hastelloy X. They aim to print 95 percent of their engine through metal additive manufacturing, taking advantage of the design freedom possible through VELO3D’s support-less printing process.

Key takeaways: 

  • Why Sierra Turbines has selected metal AM as a manufacturing process for their aerial system application
  • How nTopology and VELO3D enable customers to push the possibilities to produce a higher-performing gas microturbine
  • Discuss why DfAM should be an enabler for metal AM and not a requirement
