Rolls-Royce successfully tested the aircraft using the largest 3D printing parts

Rolls-Royce (also known as Rolls-Royce) is a well-known British aero engine company and the largest aero engine company in Europe. It has developed a wide range of jet engines for use in civil and military aircraft worldwide.

Recently, Rolls-Royce has released an Airbus passenger aircraft with the most powerful jet engine made by Rolls-Royce. The engine is equipped with the largest component ever made using 3D printing .

In the past decade, the XWB series turbofan jet engine has become the most reliable and effective civil jet engine and the most widely sold engine. At present, Rolls-Royce mainly supplies engines for the Airbus A350 XWB (ultra-wide body), and in order to keep up with Airbus's improved performance, they are constantly raising the limits of the engine.

Earlier this year, we reported that Rolls-Royce will conduct a flight test on a TrentXWB-97 engine later this year. This engine is equipped with the largest part ever made using 3D printing. Week, they did it.

The XWB-97 is similar to the A350-900's XWB-84 engine, but the TrentXWB produces 97,000 pounds of thrust while the XWB-84 produces 84,000 pounds of thrust. The increased thrust is mainly achieved by the new high-temperature turbine technology combined with the corresponding increase in the core of the engine and the more air-volume of the fan. This is all achieved by using a 3D printed turbine airfoil (used in the front bearing housing of the aircraft engine) and Advanced aerodynamics technology.

In addition, the use of 3D printing technology to manufacture aircraft engines not only saves development and design time, but also reduces manufacturing costs. According to Rolls-Royce, the production of the xwb-97 airfoil is saved by one-third due to the use of 3D printing. time.
