Industria de Turbo Propulsores, S.A., Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Aero Engines, Ltd Announce Risk and Revenue Sharing Partners on the Trent 7000

Rolls-Royce announced Industria de Turbo Propulsores, S.A. (ITP) of Spain, Japan's Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. (KHI) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Aero Engines, Ltd. (MHIAEL) as risk and revenue sharing partners on the Trent 7000, the exclusive engine for the Airbus A330neo aircraft. ITP is a joint venture between Rolls-Royce (46.9%) and a subsidiary of Sener (53.1%). ITP will be responsible for the design, assembly and the majority of manufacturing of the low pressure turbine (LPT) module. KHI will supply the intermediate pressure compressor (IPC) module from its Seishin facility. Its risk and revenue sharing relationship with Rolls-Royce dates back to 1988 and the RB211 engine, and most recently has seen KHI supply the IPC module for both the Trent 1000 and Trent XWB engines. MHIAEL will supply components for combustion modules and all stage LPT blades from its facility in Nagoya. Last year marked ten years of risk and revenue sharing partnership during which MHI (latterly through MHIAEL) has supplied combustion and turbine components for both the Trent 1000 and Trent XWB programmes. The Trent 7000 brings together: Experience from the Trent 700 - the engine of choice for the current A330; Architecture from the Trent 1000 TEN - the latest version of the Trent 1000 engine; Latest technology from the Trent XWB - the most efficient large aero engine. The 68-72,000lb thrust Trent 7000 will deliver significant performance benefits compared to the current version of the Trent 700. It will improve specific fuel consumption by 10%, have twice the bypass ratio and will halve noise. Deliveries of the A330neo will start in fourth quarter of 2017.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. Launches Dual-Arm Industrial Robot

Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. launched the duAro dual-arm industrial robot, mainly for small and medium-sized firms suffering from labor shortages. A duAro robot requires only about half the costs and space needed to introduce two conventional one-arm robots. The space-saving robot allows users to introduce the machine without changing production lines very much. The robot can be operated safely even if it is placed beside factory workers. The multiple-joint robot that is easy to program is good for the production of electronic, food and pharmaceutical products that go through changeovers frequently, officials said, anticipating demand from the industries.
