MTU is a global leader in blisk manufacturing. The word “blisk” is a combination of “blade” and “disk”. With blisks, the disk and blades are manufactured integrally, i.e. the blades are not inserted into the disk later. This removes the need for blade roots and disk slots.
- Significant reduction in weight
- Greater resilience
- Reduced maintenance
The use of blisks is suitable above all in components that bear smaller loads. Consequently, MTU Aero Solutions develops and manufactures blisks for:
- High-pressure compressors
- Low-pressure compressors
