Compressor and turbine blades & vanes

Overview

GKN Aerospace is a proven leader in multi-axis high speed machining and electro-chemical machining (ECM) of compressor and turbine blades and vanes. We have a combination of dedicated cells for production as well as flexible cells for development activity. ECM also provides the ideal design solution for single piece diffusers providing one piece, high precision multi vane airflow diffusers.
