Magellan to manufacture shafts for Rolls-Royce engines

  • 24-May-2010 04:35 EDT

Magellan Aerospace Corp. reached agreement with Rolls-Royce Plc and Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd. & Co. KG to manufacture mainline shafts and stub shafts for various Rolls-Royce engine programs. Work will be performed at Magellan's Middleton Aerospace facility in Haverhill, MA. Gross program revenue is estimated to be $425 million over the 15-year term of the agreement. Magellan will use its existing equipment for initial production but will expand its manufacturing footprint at the Haverhill facility to accommodate new equipment and processes required to support full-scale production for the program. The first Magellan deliveries are expected to be made in the second half of 2010.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
