GKN Aerospace is responsible for the complete design, development, manufacture, assembly and certification of a number of turboprop and turbofan solutions including engine build unit (EBU) and podding.
Our turbofan design solution incorporates a lightweight composite design for both the inlet and the fan cowl doors and we have recently developed a one piece composite acoustic liner offering 100% open area to provide maximum acoustic attenuation.
We work closely with customers such as Boeing, Spirit AeroSystems, and Pratt & Whitney to concurrently engineer lightweight, high temperature exhaust systems with noise attenuating properties. These exhausts feature severe contours formed to precise tolerances.
GKN Aerospace has the capability to design and build complete pylon solutions including fairings and are looking at the use of new technologies and manufacturing processes to allow more integrated structures offering additional weight and cost benefits.
Our portfolio of products includes an array of acoustic exhaust system designs in Titanium (747-8 commercial airliner), Stainless Steel (KC-46 air tanker) & Inconel (A350-1000 commercial airliner), suited for a wide range of temperatures and environments.
