Is it possible to 3D print an axial turbine 2 - 4 inches (50 - 100 mm) in radius, capable withstanding temperatures about 800 - 1000°C and rotation speeds of 100 - 120 x 103 rpm?
How expensive is that? Is it cheaper to mill such a turbine from a whole piece of alloy?
What technologies and materials should be used?
Are Inconel alloys suitable for 3D printing?
Are there any titanium alloys suitable for this task? I've read titanium is rarely used in rapidly rotating parts due to its ability to ignite if mechanical failure occurs and rotating blades touch the casing. Do titanium alloys still have this drawback?
Is it possible to make disk of titanium and blades of Inconel, and have them welded (considering heat expansion)?
How blades or blisks can be ceramically coated?
