CASE STUDY: 3D Printing Turbomachinery for Super Critical CO2 Systems

Summary

While it may take hundreds of parts to construct power generation equipment, there are mission critical ones that can determine the performance of the entire system.

Many of these highly optimized parts can be tricky to manufacture and present some of the greatest engineering challenges that high-tech companies face. Tradeoffs often must be made between performance, availability, volume, quality, and cost.

Most 3D printers would need a large amount of support structures (in red) to produce the design. The VELO3D Sapphire printer can manufacture the same design with minimal supports (in blue).
