Chromalloy announced that it has delivered the first seal segment carrier components to Rolls-Royce for the new Trent XWB aircraft engine.
“As a supplier for the new Trent XWB engine, Chromalloy has delivered our first seal segment carrier components to the manufacturer’s production line,” said Carlo Luzzatto, president. “The components were cast at a Chromalloy investment foundry and machining was performed at a manufacturing center in the company’s global network.”
Chromalloy produced the components on schedule as part of a multi-year contract for the supply chain of the new Trent XWB engine–a next generation, fuel efficient power system scheduled to enter service in mid-2014.
“Chromalloy is a total solution provider for critical components for power systems, offering make-complete parts from design and engineering services through casting and machining,” Luzzatto said.
The company is a long-time supplier to Rolls-Royce, providing repairs and services for the components found in the gas path or hot section of commercial and military aircraft engines. Contracts include services for the Trent and RB series engines, and others.
