“Engines for decades” made by MTU

MTU Aero Engines offers its customers a comprehensive range of products and services that covers the entire life cycle of an engine: from enabling technology research and development of materials, components and modules, testing and a wide variety of maintenance solutions all the way to services for mature engines. The company’s capabilities in these fields are prominently featured in MTU’s trade show display at this year’s Paris Air Show: “MTU aims to make sure that its customers can focus their full attention on their core business, that is the economic and eco-efficient operation of their aircraft,” is how the company describes its objective in an air show press release.

An eyecatcher at MTU’s booth in hall 2A, the prestigious “La Rotonde”, is the holography box that projects realistic images of a PW1000G engine, based on real CAD data, with a 3D appearance in a detailed, animated presentation. “In the commercial engine business the geared turbofan is currently the most exciting innovation. The hologram, the pertinent multimedia information and our original test module – a high-speed low-pressure turbine – attract many visitors and highlight our contribution to the success of the PurePower® program,” says Dongyun Yang, who supervises MTU’s booth.
