ALD Vacuum Technologies GmbH, a division of AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group N.V., headquartered in Hanau, Germany, will hold its 3rd Symposium on Technologies and Equipment for Aircraft Engine Components at its newly expanded Hanau headquarters in cooperation with the DLR (German Aerospace Center) Cologne. The symposium will take place from September 14–16, 2020, and the event will conclude with a visit to the DLR on September 17.

The 2020 symposium will feature lectures, discussions and demonstrations of advanced investment casting, thermal and environmental barrier coatings and other production technologies for aerospace applications. Selected manufacturers of production technologies will also present their services in a small exhibition during the symposium. 

The event will include the following key topics:

  • Metal powder for aviation applications
  • Heat treatment
  • Investment casting technology (turbine blades, etc)
  • Thermal and Environmental Barrier Coatings (EB-PVD)

ALD Vacuum Technologies GmbH is a key supplier of equipment for the production of important raw materials, intermediate and end products for aviation and in particular for jet engines. In addition, other companies belonging to parent company AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group supply metals and alloys for the aerospace industry, including titanium and titanium-aluminium alloys. ALD stated that is organizing this symposium as a platform for an open exchange of information and opinions with customers and other key players in the aviation industry.

The Institute for Materials Research at DLR in Cologne deals, among other research areas, with high-temperature resistant and functional layers. The institute develops both metallic and ceramic materials and protective coatings, which are used to prolong the lifetime of components, prevent damage by environmental media, and enable the use of the base materials in harsh turbine environments.

Further information and registration details for the symposium are available via the company website.
