This technical paper describes the computer-assisted manufacturing of a newly developed gas turbine inner casing designed by Siemens/KWU for hot gas temperatures up to 1350 °C.

After explaining the most important design features, double wall casing with intensive impingement cooling, and details on the special materials involved, the manufacturing sequence and requisite special manufacturing techniques are described. The significant advantages and benefits of a CAD/CAM system tailored to the respective technique employed for this key aerodynamically-optimized item of a stationary gas turbine are elucidated in light of economic concerns and quality requirements and conditions imposed.

In conclusion, the transferability of the design principle described in this paper and its implementation in future-oriented developments in fabrication techniques employed in the manufacture of hot-gas-path casings at even higher temperatures are discussed.
