• The most highly sophisticated TCF in MTU’s portfolio was built within record time
• MTU also assumed full development responsibility
Munich, February 2, 2016 – The achievement is no mean feat: MTU Aero Engines in Munich has completed the first development turbine center frame (TCF for short) to go into the GE9X engine. “In this engine program, we are not only responsible for the manufacture of the TCF, but also assumed responsibility for its development right from the outset,” explained Dr. Jörg Henne, Senior Vice President Engineering and Technology, on the occasion of the last bolt ceremony held in Munich in late January. “On another positive note, to make the deadline, we have com-pleted the first GE9X TCF within record time,” according to Theodor Pregler, Senior Vice Presi-dent Commercial Programs at MTU in Munich.
