  • Patent number: 11525368
    Abstract: A turbine guide apparatus, having multiple guide blades. Each guide blade has a first shroud and a second shroud formed on radial ends of a blade leaf having a first carrier for the guide blades. Each guide blade is fastened to the first carrier via a first shroud projection having a second carrier for the guide blades and is fastened on the second carrier via a second shroud projection. The first shroud projection is inserted into a groove of the first carrier in the radial direction and fastened in this groove via a bolt extending in the axial direction through the projection of the first shroud with radial mobility in this groove. The second shroud projection of the guide blade is fastened in the circumferential and radial direction via a pin extending in the axial direction into the projection of the second shroud and the second carrier.

  • Patent number: 11486258
    Abstract: A blade of a turbo machine, having a blade leaf, with a flow leading edge, a flow trailing edge, and flow conducting surfaces, and a cooling passage integrated in the blade leaf. In the region of the blade leaf cooling passage portions extend substantially in the radial direction. Adjacent cooling passage portions merge into one another via a diversion passage portion having a material web extending between the adjacent cooling passage portions. The respective material web ends in the region of the respective diversion passage portion. The respective material web has a defined axial width between the respective adjacent cooling passage portions and the respective material web in the region of the respective diversion passage portion has a material thickening enlarging the axial width by at least 20%.

  • Patent number: 11408289
    Abstract: A moving blade of a turbo machine, having a leading edge, a flow trailing edge, flow conduction faces, and a blade root mounting the moving blade to a hub body. The blade root is fir tree-like with projections spaced apart from one another. An inner shroud is arranged between the blade leaf and the blade root. A cooling passage is integrated in the blade leaf and the blade root for a cooling medium. An inlet of the cooling passage is formed on the blade root formed of a first inlet passage portion and a second inlet passage portion and a material web extends there between. The first inlet passage portion and the second inlet passage portion merge into a unifying passage portion arranged radially outside the uppermost projection of the blade root and radially inside of the inner shroud.

  • Publication number: 20210176885
    Abstract: A backplane is for electrically connecting electrical components, and a method is for producing the backplane. The backplane includes a mounting board, conductor tracks arranged on the mounting board, and at least one sensor unit. The method includes integrating the at least one sensor unit into the mounting board by an additive manufacturing method; printing the conductor tracks from an electrically conductive paste, the electrically conductive paste being cured after being applied to the mounting board, by way of 3D printing; and detecting and monitoring, via the at least one sensor unit, function of the conductor tracks during production of the backplane.
