Investments General Electric in the creation of a new engine

 

GE is less than a year to complete the release of a commercial jet engine.

The total cost of the project amounted to 300 million. Dollars, including construction of new buildings of buildings and purchase of equipment, for the period from the end of 2013 2015 years. Currently under test operation of all units of the engine, as adjusted production line. To test the system and fine-tuning of the engine, a special center at the University of Dayton in the town of West Chester.

 

 

In GE's total has more than 15 000 people, most of whom are engaged in the production of aerospace products, systems mashinoobrabotku and energy. Partnerships allow industrial relations to provide jobs to thousands of people further.

Engine Leap - is a product of GE, developed jointly with the French company CFM International.

Production of engines in a joint venture is developing rapidly: in the year 2012 3296 engines were sold, the year 2014 3740 units.

The new engine will be the first product that will contain the additive manufactured parts as well as components and assemblies, which are used in the manufacture of composite materials with a ceramic matrix. New technologies will allow to create an engine that is lighter, capable of withstanding high temperatures, which will increase fuel economy by 15%, as compared to the currently used sample.

Deliveries of new engines have already been distributed in the two years ahead (2016 and 2017 years).

Training and certification for the production of a new engine

Currently, the company is testing the engine in order to increase productivity and prepare for the federal certification. New components used in production, include: enclosure turbines manufactured using composite material containing microscopic fibers woven together, in the production of fuel injectors, which are used 3D manufacturing process.

We construct new plants: to create products from composites in Asheville (NC), additive manufacturing plant in Auburn (AL) and an assembly plant in West Lafayette (Indiana).

Engine assembly will be carried out on two lines to duplicate contracts and increase the reliability of the production program. In 2015, production capacity will be tested before the start of mass production. Verification will also be subject to service centers, as well as the company's implementation of all operations associated with sales.
