Overview of our airplane engine components
Modern engine components have to fulfill a wide range of requirements
Absolute reliability even under extreme heat is a key requirement for engine components in the aerospace industry. In addition, the aerospace industry has strict specifications for quality management. Component weights and costs both need to be kept low. All of this put increasing pressure on conventional manufacturing processes.
High-temperature resistant materials are the solution
Schunk is on board with the aviation industry – specifically in the engine. The secret to the success of our engine components is a highly heat-resistant material molded using metal powder-injection molding (MIM). This process allows us to reduce the weight of the components, while ensuring good reproducibility and consistent dimensions and lowering manufacturing costs at the same time. In addition, our engine components impress thanks to extended service lives and improved performance.
Always there for our customers in the aviation industry
We meet the demands of the aviation industry through close partnership in component development. We get involved in the customer’s basic development process and participate early on in product development, in order to ensure joint project success. This results in high-quality engine components with customer-specific designs, made of materials designed precisely to meet their requirements.
