Virtual manufacturing of light weight aero engine components
2009 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
Light weight design has been identified as one of Volvo Aero key contribution in the effort to meet the global challenges of reduced CO2 emissions from aviation. This has resulted in a number of design solutions where fabrication of large structural components is the preferable way and has indicated weight savings by up to 20% in comparison to corresponding products in today's existing engines. Introducing these new design solutions requires an existing industrial structure to come up with new and innovative solutions that will support the introduction of the new products. In this paper virtual manufacturing technologies supporting design as well as manufacturing engineers in decision making and preparation of new design solutions will be described.
