Rolls-Royce to fly Trent XWB with largest-ever 3D-printed part
Aircraft Design : 11 March, 2015
Rolls-Royce recognises the potential of additive layer manufacturing ALM for producing aero-engine parts, using metal powder melted by electron beam and built ultra-thin layer by layer into complex shapes. The machines are sourced from Swedish company Arcam. Additive layer manufacturing has been used to construct a 1.5m diameter and 0.5m thick titanium front bearing housing (FBH) containing 48 aerofoils. It is held inside a Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 engine.
 
Automating assembly of aircraft wing structures
Aircraft Design : 05 March, 2014
GKN Aerospace is leading a project under the Structures Technology Maturity (STeM) programme that aims to automate the assembly of aircraft structures with the goal of creating consistently high-quality wing structures 30% faster than is possible today.
 
Boeing announces location of 777X Composite Wing Centre
Aircraft Design : 23 February, 2014
Boeing has announced that its Everett, Washington site will be the location for a new composite wing centre for the 777X programme. It will be located north of the Everett factory. The new jets will be available in two variants, resized versions of the current 777-300ER, with "ultra-long range capability.
 
Geometrically-locked aerostructures manufactured without fasteners
Aircraft Design : 24 June, 2013
Elbit Systems offers advanced integral composite aerostructures that significantly cut costs and shorten lead time. Examples are On display at Le Bourget, Paris Air Show.
 
Radically rethinking aviation technology
Aircraft Design : 08 April, 2011
Professor Dieter Peitsch believes that the slow evolution in the design of aircraft engines over the past 50 years needs to be replaced by a radical rethink of aircraft, air travel and engine configurations.
