Rolls-Royce HPDM

Rolls-Royce has drawn upon the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre’s (AMRC) expertise to develop an advanced manufacturing method for gas turbine disc components for Rolls-Royce’s latest family of large Civil Gas Turbines.

A joint Rolls-Royce / AMRC team used cutting edge machining, tooling and modelling technologies to deliver a step change improvement to work content, productivity and quality, compared to industry standard methods.

The manufacture of full scale demonstrator components at the AMRC validated the new approach in readiness for the launch of a new high technology disc factory at Washington near Newcastle in the North East of England that will open in Q4 2013.
