On the second day of SAHA EXPO, TEI signed an agreement with Sabancı University to develop composite engine parts.
TEI General Manager Prof. Dr. Mahmut F. Akşit and Sabancı University Rector Prof. Dr. Within the scope of the agreement signed by Yusuf Leblebici, the “Fan Inner Casing System Development Project from Composite Material in Turbofan Engines” will be carried out at the Integrated Production Technologies Research and Application Center (SU IMC) operating within Sabancı University. While the use of composite material technology in aviation engines provides a competitive solution by enabling lightweight engine design, it also provides a serious advantage by providing higher strength. The use of composite materials in aviation engines is becoming widespread thanks to developing production technologies.
Speaking at the signing ceremony, TEI General Manager Prof. Dr. Mahmut F. Akşit noted that they have been carrying out different projects with Sabancı University for many years, especially in the field of additive manufacturing, and that the works to be carried out in accordance with this agreement will take this cooperation between the two institutions to the next level. Akşit said that especially the parts produced in the aviation industry are very difficult and complex, and that they have achieved important outputs as a result of the hard work of all the teams involved in the projects they carried out with Sabancı University. Akşit said, “The project to develop this system, which will be used in Turkey's most powerful engine, will be an important step on this road where we will move towards more difficult projects.” said.
Speaking at the ceremony, Sabancı University Rector Prof. Dr. Yusuf Leblebici said, “Sabancı University has been carrying out very important and good works on composite materials and additive manufacturing for years. We have been working with TEI for a long time, especially on additive manufacturing, and we have achieved very good results so far. Today, in addition to all these studies, we are undertaking a project that will open the door to the use of composite materials in the aviation industry. With this agreement, as Sabancı University, we will continue to support TEI's work with our researchers and employees at our center. We are also proud that we have made Turkey one of the few countries in the world that has a say in this field.” said.
