Pratt & Whitney Company, Inc. Key Developments

Spirit Airlines Selects the Pratt & Whitney Turbofan Engine

Pratt & Whitney has entered passenger service with Spirit Airlines, supplying the company's PurePower Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine on the airline's Airbus A320neo. Spirit Airlines has ordered 55 of Airbus' latest narrow-body passenger jets, each powered by Pratt & Whitney's PurePower PW1100G-JM engines. Eight carriers are flying 22 GTF engine-powered aircraft across the globe.

Pratt & Whitney Signs Thrust Reverser Component Distribution Agreement with Satair Group

Pratt & Whitney, a United Technologies Corp. company, announced that it has entered into an agreement with Satair Group for the exclusive distribution of PW4000 100-inch engine thrust reverser spare parts. Under the agreement, Satair Group will distribute the spare parts to Pratt & Whitney's worldwide customer base. Satair Group will also maintain customer orders and fulfillment for the life of the program. The parties currently anticipate that Satair Group will commence its distribution duties on December 17, 2016.

MTU Aero Engines AG Collaborates with Pratt & Whitney for PurePower GTF Engine

MTU Aero Engines AG has announced that it is collaborating with Pratt & Whitney on assembling the PurePower Geared Turbofan engine, or GTF, an aircraft engine. The Pratt & Whitney GTF engine family reduces fuel burn and CO2 emissions by 16% and cuts noise footprint levels by 75%. MTU not only contributes innovative turbine and compressor technology to the GTF, it also brings some fresh ideas to the table on the production technology front: The company has refined a production method - dubbed precise electro-chemical machining (PECM) - for manufacturing high-pressure compressor (HPC) integrally bladed rotors (IBRs) made of nickel. Production is already underway on MTU's shop floors in Munich on four custom PECM machines designed, set up and commissioned by MTU's PECM experts. These components have a diameter of roughly 450 millimeters and feature extremely complex airfoil geometries. The HPC for this GTF engine is the first commercial all-IBR compressor. IBR is a high-tech rotor design in which the disk and blades are produced as a single piece. This configuration reduces overall length and weight. IBRs are used in low-pressure compressors and high-pressure compressors for military and commercial applications. MTU manufactures such components for all PW1000G-family geared turbofan engine types, for the PW6000 engine powering the A318, and for the EJ200 (Eurofighter) and TP400-D6 (A400M) military propulsion systems. The German engine manufacturer has been one of the leading manufacturers of IBRs for years now. These high-tech components are produced using a variety of methods, including linear friction welding to join the airfoil and hub; medium-sized and small IBR airfoils in titanium are milled from the solid. Producing the airfoil geometry on IBRs made from nickel falls into an entirely different category, nickel being a material difficult to machine.
