Power Machines produced the first batch of cast billets for large-sized bearing housing for gas turbines

Power Machines produced the first billets of complex configuration for large-sized housing parts of GTE-170 gas turbine bearings.

The production process was developed by specialists of the Power Machines design bureau of gas turbine installations together with technologists.

The production of large-sized cast billets imposes high requirements on equipment – the weight of bearing housing parts of up to 1 ton with overall dimensions of more than 1 m. In addition to this, the billets are of a complex shape.

Quality control of the cast billets using ultrasound testing confirmed compliance of the prototypes with international analogues.
