The aim of the new Fraunhofer innovation cluster LCE is therefore to transfer the concept of Life Cycle Engineering to turbomachines: energy- and resource-efficient technologies shall be provided for all life cycles of turbomachines. The cluster is focussed on engines in the aviation industry and gas turbines in the energy generation industry.

Fields of Innovation

The cluster initiative concentrates on the Life Cycle Engineering of turbomachines, divided in the phases of design, production, operation & maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) as well as recycling. The four fields of innovation »Product Strategies«, »Digital Modeling and Information Management«, »Process and Machining Technologies« and »Life Cycle Monitoring« are derived as cross-cutting topics of the life cycle

Fraunhofer Innovation Cluster »Life Cycle Engineering for Turbomachines«, Berlin/Brandenburg

Turbomachinery producers in the fields of aviation and energy generation are obliged to meet future challenges concerning resource conservation, profitability and aviation safety. Due to the climate change, the energy policy framework requires the reduction of CO2 emissions as well as a higher proportion of renewable energies. The latter calls for more flexible load changes of fossil power plants and therefore of turbomachines. Furthermore, the increasing scarcity of resources concerning materials and fuels constitutes another important challenge. In order to meet these challenges, industry and science have united in the Fraunhofer innovation cluster »Life Cycle Engineering for Turbomachines«.
