Turbine center frames

Turbine center frames

In the upper thrust category of commercial engines, MTU is renowned for its turbine center frames. We develop and build this highly engineered component for long-haul aircraft engines: the GP7000 for the Airbus A380, the GEnx for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Boeing 747-8, and the GE9X, the exclusive engine for the Boeing 777X.

The turbine center frame routes the flow of hot gases exiting the high-pressure turbine toward the low-pressure turbine. In operation, it is exposed to extreme mechanical loads and high temperatures. The material and design must satisfy the highest of standards.
