Alcoa stated, The combination of advanced coatings and internal cooling schemes make it possible for investment cast airfoils
to operate in an environment that reaches temperatures much greater than the airfoils
Most authors also researched and compared similar airfoils
according to calculated and experimental results.
To achieve such energy, Howmet's A380 airfoils
undergo a series of tests to ensure they meet the standards for the groundbreaking aircraft.
The continued increase in IGT volume at PCC Airfoils
added to the positive sales growth, as did strong sales performance at Advanced Forming Technology.
DONCASTERS is also one of the world's largest producers of gas turbine airfoils
with casting operations in Europe and finish machining operations in New England, Georgia and the UK.
The project included a new airfoil
manufacturing operation to support Alcoa Howmet's growing jet aircraft and industrial gas turbine business in Europe.
Both facilities belong to the Airfoils
Group of companies and manufacture complex investment cast airfoils
for gas turbine manufacturers worldwide.
PCC is the market leader in manufacturing both large, complex structural investment castings and airfoil
castings used in jet aircraft engines.
Geomagic Blade extends Geomagic Qualify computer-aided inspection (CAI) software to provide special features that have been tested and verified by leading turbo-machinery companies such as GE Power Systems, Honeywell, Howmet, PCC Airfoils
LLC, Pratt & Whitney, Solar Turbines, Siemens and others.
Darien, Connecticut, was selected by Pratt & Whitney as the single supplier for single-crystal investment cast airfoils
for the F135 propulsion system.
more than one million airfoils
per year with industry-leading
In addition to the aluminum powder, Alcoa provides airfoils
to the main engine of the space shuttle.
The casting will be performed at four PCC locations: PCC Airfoils
, Mentor and Minerva, Ohio; PCC Structurals, Portland, Oregon; and PCC Airfoils
' AETC, Ltd.
, headquartered in Beachwood, Ohio, will manufacture blades and vanes for the PW4090 and PW4098 engines.
This facility manufactures high-quality fan and compressor airfoils
(blades) for several aircraft engines.
