Component testing

Component testing: attention to the smallest detail

The perfect engine is the result of perfect parts. Which is why MTU only uses components that have been rigorously and successfully tested. All mechanical component tests are conducted in a simulated environment, using engine conditions with realistic loads. MTU performs tests on rotating and static parts, such as compressor and turbine disks, blades and vanes, casings and shafts, as well as engine accessories, such as control units and sensors.
