Safran Aéro Composite is dedicated to the production of 3D woven composite parts, made using the RTM (resin transfer molding) process. Inaugurated late November 2014, this 300,000ft2 ultra-modern plant is similar to the Rochester, NH facility (United States), which was inaugurated earlier in March of the same year.
At these two locations, Safran Aircraft Engines works in partnership with Albany International, an American specialist in industrial weaving, to produce engine parts in 3D woven composites based on RTM (resin transfer molding) process. The first application of this technology is the production of blades and fan case for the LEAP® engine, developed by CFM International*, designed to power the next-generation of single-aisle aircraft.
* CFM International is a 50/50 company between Safran Aircraft Engines and GE
