Celebration of the “1000”

World record by Siemens Energy & GEFERTEC - The WAAM process has been used in series production for the first time: Siemens Energy has produced over 1,000 guide vanes for turbines with an arc machine from GEFERTEC. - with quantities of 1,000 to date.

The manufacture of steam turbines requires high quality, especially when it comes to guide vanes from Siemens Energy. In 2018, a supplier delay triggered a crisis that delayed delivery beyond the completion of the turbine. This led to a rethink towards additive manufacturing, particularly with WAAM technology. The immediate availability of parts and the newly gained independence from traditional supply chains meant a significant change in strategy. Siemens Energy was the first company in the world to use the WAAM process in series production – with our Arc machine series. The highlight? In fall 2023, the 1000th guide vane was printed – a world record! Click here for more.
