Rolls-Royce Advanced Casting Blade

Rolls-Royce is working closely with the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry to develop and optimise enabling technologies in support of the new Advanced Blade Casting Facility (ABCF) which will deliver single crystal turbine blades castings for the Trent engine family.

An integrated Rolls-Royce / MTC team have established a pre-production cell to prove the effectiveness of cutting edge technologies designed to deliver significant productivity improvements.

These technologies will be deployed into Rolls-Royce’s Advanced Blade Casting Facility which is currently under construction at the Advanced Manufacturing Park, Rotherham, South Yorkshire. When completed this facility will employ 150 staff and deliver 100,000 castings a year.
