UMPO Created First Parts of Gas Turbine Engine Using Heat Resistant Aluminum
The enterprise Ufa Engine Industrial Association of the division “Engines for combat aircraft” of Rostec in conjunction with the Ufa State Technical University of Aviation released the first blades of a gas turbine engine made with heat-resistant aluminum.
In 2013, it was managed to get the first samples of the details of the new alloy, this year it will be used in production of full-length compressor blades, the press service of the company reports. The next step – welding them to the disc by linear friction welding – will be made after machining. All studies are conducted jointly by UMPO and USATU with the participation of another member of the division – NPP “Motor”. It is planned to test the technology on the gas turbine drive GTP-953 developed at NPP “Motor” and, in the case of successful trials, to offer suggest to the introduction in the production of turbine engine for military aviation.
