Engine high-tech at its best

Engine high-tech at its best: MTU Aero engines at the 2016 ILA Berlin Air Show

MTU Aero engines will be showcasing its products and services at the 2016 ILA Berlin Air Show – in Hall 2, booth No. 301

The spotlight of MTU’s exhibit at this year’s International Aerospace Exhibition and Conferences (ILA) in Berlin will be on innovative technologies, superior quality in production, and flexible services that can be tailored to customers’ specific requirements. At its booth, Germany’s leading engine manufacturer will be presenting its solutions for the entire lifecycle of an engine – from development and production all the way through to maintenance.

The four-day aviation extravaganza kicks off in the German capital on Wednesday June 1 and MTU is not missing out on the opportunity to be part of the show – both with its booth – No. 301 in Hall 2 – and the high-tech it contributes. A real crowd-puller from the commercial engine business is the GTF holography box. With this interactive communication tool, guests are presented with a vivid image of the Geared Turbofan™, technology that is testimony to the research and development expertise held by MTU and its partners, which, with this know-how, are contributing in no small measure to the innovative clout of Germany’s aviation industry. Also on show will be a GEnx turbine center frame (TCF), as installed in numerous engines powering Boeing Dreamliner aircraft.

MTU’s commercial maintenance sector will be presenting its cutting-edge solutions on offer in the MRO market, the V2500 drum repair for example. The repair procedure provides a solution the costly problem of wear on the rotor, an issue that was previously thought to be unavoidable. The exhibit is complemented by a cutaway model of a V2500 high-pressure compressor. MTU’s innovative repairs also include MTUPlus ERCoateco, a high-temperature erosion protection coating for high-pressure compressor airfoils that helps cut specific fuel consumption and COemissions.

And of course the ILA would not be the ILA without exhibits from the military sector. MTU will have three military engines on display at its booth: The TP400-D6 powering the A400M, the EJ200 for the Eurofighter Typhoon and the T408 to power the CH-53K heavy-lift helicopter. In the Federal Armed Forces’ pavilion, MTU will be showcasing an EJ200 cutaway model and the MTR390 powering the Tiger heli­copter. Soldiers and MTU staff will be demonstrating how their cooperation to jointly maintain the serviceable condition of the aircraft works.

We look forward to seeing you there!
