The Spanish subsidiary Renishaw Ibérica, S.A.U. is working with a unique selection of other Spanish engineering companies and research centres in a ground-breaking project which could change the way aerospace turbines are manufactured forever.
Led by the aero engines and turbines manufacturer ITP and with the cooperation of several other Spanish companies, universities and technology centres, the objective of the Futuralve project is to create advanced material and manufacturing technologies for the new generation of high-speed turbines for the aerospace sector. The 4-year project is funded by the Spanish Government through the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI).
Throughout the project Renishaw is directly involved with the development of new lightweight additively manufactured materials capable of withstanding high forces at extreme temperatures.
