Drive the Rotor
The turbine engine is the heart of the helicopter. Unlike airplane engines which produce the thrust force, the role of the turbine engine is to supply power to the shaft which enables the rotor to be driven. The transmission that turns the rotor is powered by a set of turbines that absorb energy from the hot gas and the high pressure flowing through the blades. This gas is produced in a combustion chamber where fuel mixed with compressed air is burned. The stator blades help direct and maintain the air flow.
This extremely complex assembly should be able to withstand very high temperatures and the parts comprising it are subjected to considerable mechanical stresses. Forged solutions make it possible to obtain parts that meet the specifications required by these applications.
Setforge, a subsidiary of Farinia Group, is able to forge a wide range of components with hydraulic and mechanical presses and hammers for helicopter engines in aluminum, titanium or high-performance steels including OGV blades, platforms and fittings of all kinds. These parts are optimized by our engineers and experts to offer you an optimal weight / power ratio.
