With the geared turbofan (GTF), Pratt & Whitney and MTU Aero Engines are building the most eco-efficient propulsion system currently available in the marketplace. “To gear up for these engines, MTU has developed an innovative floor-based line assembly system and built it up and put it into operation at the company’s headquarters in Munich”, explains MTU Chief Operating Officer Lars Wagner. The core of MTU’s GTF production assembly line is a highly innovative, remotely controlled floor-based transportation system that – thanks to its modular design – can be flexibly adapted to accommodate the individual build stages of the engine. The system provides for PW1100G-JM engine assembly to be performed in several work steps and allows several engines in various stages of completion to be assembled concurrently. Innovative floor-based line system.
MTU’s assembly line does without complicated overhead crane structures; instead it relies on a floor-based system. Mobility with purpose-built carriers
