Fraunhofer-Center for High Temperature Materials and Design HTL designs energy-efficient heating processes and thus contributes to the sustainable technological progress of society. It develops high-temperature materials, high-temperature components and high-temperature measuring methods, thereby optimizing thermal processes. The HTL works with systematic methods on a high scientific-technical level. The primary goal is the implementation of its developments in the industry.
The AirfOx project started on 1 January 2021. The aim is to develop a technology with which a near-net-shape 3D preform of engine blades for aircraft gas turbines can be integrally woven from oxide ceramic fibres and made suitable for series production.
