Rig testing

Rig testing – to make sure they deliver

Whether compressors or turbines, all modules and assemblies must meet specific aerodynamic and thermodynamic requirements. The engine will only run efficiently when each of its constituents performs as specified.

MTU verifies the performance of the various modules and assemblies using advanced measuring techniques in special test rigs at its Munich location and at Stuttgart university. We support module tests from rig design and configuration to test monitoring and data evaluation. In other words, we provide an end-to-end service for optimum results.
