Leistritz has been a partner for aircraft engine manufacturers since the very first jet engines, helping develop and manufacture turbine airfoils from extremely tough materials such as high-temperature steels, titanium and nickel-based alloys. Leistritz Turbinentechnik supplies such airfoils as either forged blanks or ready for assembly, with a clear focus in the field of compressor airfoils. The precision and dimensional accuracy of the compressor airfoils are decisive for the power and output of an aircraft engine. This is why the manufacture of the aerodynamically-shaped, complex airfoils geometries with the narrowest of tolerances is a particular challenge.
Depending on the component requirements, we use our versatile technological know-how in the shaping, processing and finishing of metallic materials to develop and apply manufacturing processes for rotor as well as stator parts. A special feature in this product group are integral vane cluster which we can manufacture in both titanium and nickel materials. Our product portfolio ranges from the most complex low-pressure rotor blades through to the smallest outlet guide vane. Our claim is that we support our customers – whenever possible – in the early stage of development so that we can jointly develop at a technically mature, ready-to-install serial product.
