Manufacturing processes

Engines are high-tech products the manufacture of which calls for innovative techniques and processes. To remain at the forefront of technology, MTU keeps developing innovative manufacturing methods.

One of the techniques developed by MTU's manufacturing specialists is lasercaving, for which the company holds a global patent. In the process, flared cooling air holes are drilled using 10,000 or more laser shots per second. The holes thus produced markedly improve the cooling efficiency.
