Continuum robot offers brand new possibilities
05.2017 | Fast, flexible repair solutions are gaining in importance in engine maintenance. In collaboration with MTU Aero Engines, scientists from Leibniz Universität Hannover are exploring a groundbreaking new method at the Turbine and MRO Center of Competence.
Coatings protect engine components
05.2017 | Ultra-thin layers of metallic or ceramic materials protect against heat, erosion and chemical agents. In the quest to design more efficient propulsion systems that can be operated efficiently with higher combustion temperatures, thermal coatings have become a key technology.
V2500: Minor repair job—major effect
05.2017 | In the case of the high-pressure compressor for the V2500 engine, thin vibration damping rings were significantly reducing the service life. This was solved with tongue-and-groove joints to connect the wire ends and applying a spark-free coating to the housing walls.
For this MTU engineer, it’s all about the location
05.2017 | Anita VanBarneveld, who holds a degree in aerospace engineering, is passionate about three things: engineering, sports and family. This 42-year-old Canadian is living proof that these pursuits don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
