Gearboxes and rotating parts
The Gearboxes Plant consists of four production departments with approximately 600 employees. It specialises in the production of gear wheels, shafts, frames and gearboxes for engines used, for example, in Bombardier Q400, Bombardier C series, Embraer E2, ATR72 aircrafts, or auxiliary engines, such as those used in the Airbus A380.
The plant has the technical facilities and range of machines to enable the production processes for gear wheels and frames, from forging and casting to turning, 5-axis milling, copper plating, broaching, heat treatment, grinding, NDT control, galvanic coating, REM-CHEM processes, honing, static and dynamic balancing, to final inspection of the parts.
FDGS (Fan Drive Geared System)
One of the new projects of the gearbox plant is the production and assembly of FDGS gearboxes – the entire project from the construction to the conducted tests took place at Pratt & Whitney Rzeszów.
ADT (Accessory Drive Train)
The power unit gearboxes are the second elements in a PW1000 series manufactured at the GBU in the frame processing department. Made of aluminium, magnesium and titanium alloys, they constitute an important element in the entire engine and enable its proper functioning.
The company installs gearboxes in three different engine models used in the following aircrafts:
- Airbus A320 NEO
- Bombardier CS100
- MRJ 90LR
In the area of FDGS production, ring, sun and planet gears, as well as the frames of ADT gearboxes are created. The range of machines was optimised for the purposes of the production programme and processing automation, according to the Closed Door technology.
In order to reduce the time of implementation for a new product, when testing instruments and technological processes, different technologies within the area of rapid prototyping are used at the plant.
