The key topics of this year’s event were digitalization and sustainability, attracting some 200 participants from 18 countries. Speakers from leading companies active in turbomachinery manufacturing reported on current developments and future-oriented technologies and their applications in aerospace and power generation.
The term “ecolonomic” was coined at the conference to describe optimised forms of turbomachinery manufacturing and deployment that reduce both cost and environmental impact.
Fraunhofer ILT opened their machine shops and laboratories to visitors during the conference.
The 6th ICTM Conference will take place on February 24–25, 2021 also in Aachen.
