Morgan to Showcase Breakthrough Repair Techniques at Major Global Aerospace Event
This will be the first time that Morgan will exhibit at this event, which brings together leading players from across the aerospace engine manufacturing and MRO sector to discuss current trends and issues.
Morgan is a global leader in the use of pre-sintered preforms (PSPs) for the repair of turbine components, with this capability now extending to cover bearing repair, rotating component restoration and aerofoil preforms. These require the use of complex three-dimensional preforms, an industry first resulting from Morgan’s continued commitment to research and development and partnerships with global aerospace OEMs.
Luca Leone, Business Development Lead explained: “The cost of manufacturing engine components such as turbine blades and vanes is considerable due to the specialist materials involved and the complex casting processes required. This means that aircraft operators and maintenance specialists are unwilling to countenance the loss of an in-service component, making effective repair techniques absolutely critical.
“Morgan pioneered the use of PSPs in the repair of turbine blades – a process which has ensured that thousands of these components which might previously have been discarded have remained serviceable. This repair process has also been adapted to cater for more complex geometries and so is enabling drastic reduction in turnaround times for turbines, sometimes by as much as 50 per cent.
“We are seeing strong interest in these highly innovative techniques from the major global aerospace OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, who are looking for every opportunity to drive out cost from the supply chain and extend service life.”
