Leistritz has been a part­ner for air­craft en­gine man­u­fac­tur­ers since the very first jet en­gines, help­ing de­velop and man­u­fac­ture tur­bine air­foils from ex­tremely tough ma­te­ri­als such as high-tem­per­a­ture steels, ti­ta­nium and nickel-based al­loys. Leistritz Tur­binen­tech­nik sup­plies such air­foils as ei­ther forged blanks or ready for as­sem­bly, with a clear focus in the field of com­pres­sor air­foils. The pre­ci­sion and di­men­sional ac­cu­racy of the com­pres­sor air­foils are de­ci­sive for the power and out­put of an air­craft en­gine. This is why the man­u­fac­ture of the aero­dy­nam­i­cally-shaped, com­plex air­foils geome­tries with the nar­row­est of tol­er­ances is a par­tic­u­lar chal­lenge.


De­pend­ing on the com­po­nent re­quire­ments, we use our ver­sa­tile tech­no­log­i­cal know-how in the shap­ing, pro­cess­ing and fin­ish­ing of metal­lic ma­te­ri­als to de­velop and apply man­u­fac­tur­ing processes for rotor as well as sta­tor parts. A spe­cial fea­ture in this prod­uct group are in­te­gral vane clus­ter which we can man­u­fac­ture in both ti­ta­nium and nickel ma­te­ri­als. Our prod­uct port­fo­lio ranges from the most com­plex low-pres­sure rotor blades through to the small­est out­let guide vane. Our claim is that we sup­port our cus­tomers – when­ever pos­si­ble – in the early stage of de­vel­op­ment so that we can jointly de­velop at a tech­ni­cally ma­ture, ready-to-in­stall se­r­ial prod­uct.
