MTU Aero Engines at the Paris Air Show
Long-lived high-tech products
At the Paris Air Show (hall 2A, booth C254), MTU Aero Engines shows exhibits from its portfolio of products and services for commercial and military aviation
When the 2015 Paris Air Show officially opens its doors on June 15, virtually all eyes of the international aviation community will be on the capital of France, or, more specifically, on Le Bourget Airport on the northern outskirts of the city, for one week. The event is one of the world’s largest air shows of its kind, covering the full range of aerospace activities.
MTU Aero Engines does not miss out on the opportunity to showcase its capabilities at a centrally located booth which features a selection from its portfolio of products and services on a surface area of 300 square meters (hall 2A, booth C254). With its long-lived high-tech products, the German engine manufacturer is a reliable partner of many years in the fields of research & development, design, production, assembly and maintenance of commercial and military engines. The booth is staffed with knowledgeable MTU employees for visitors to contact; the experts will explain the company’s core areas of activity to interested guests using the numerous exhibits.
Reduced fuel burn, lower carbon-dioxide emissions, less noise – the mega trends in the industry have hardly ever been as plain to see as they are today. When it comes to finding solutions to address these challenges, MTU and its partners are pace-setters that come up with new ideas and technologies. Take the Geared TurbofanTM (GTF), for example. This technology is prominently featured in the trade show display in the form of the GTF holography box, an interactive communication tool.

3D holographic effects highlight the advantages of geared turbofan technology, plus areas of MTU’s core competencies the German company contributes: parts of the high-pressure compressor, and the high-speed low-pressure turbine. An original copy of the latter is even exhibited at the trade show booth.
Among the commercial products showcased by MTU are the turbine center frame (TCF) for the GEnx, one of the Dreamliner’s engine options, as well as low-pressure turbine airfoils for the GP7000, one of the engine choices for the Airbus A380. Also on display are a cut-up model of the EJ200, the engine that powers the Eurofighter Typhoon, and a T408, which powers Sikorsky’s CH-53K Super Stallion helicopter.
MTU Maintenance displays an overview of MTU’s technological capabilities in the area of engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO).
