Investment helps optimise service to aerospace and industrial gas turbine sectors

Morgan Advanced Materials : 24 October, 2014  (Company News)
A substantial six-figure investment by Morgan Advanced Materials in both people and equipment at its UK-based Certech sites is enhancing the company’s offering to industrial sectors including aerospace and industrial gas turbines.
Investment helps optimise service to aerospace and industrial gas turbine sectors
The company has invested in a state-of-the-art three-axis robot, being used primarily in high-volume, medium complexity operations, which is helping to optimise repeatability and process consistency while significantly increasing overall yield.
A new injection moulding machine has also been acquired for the production of industrial gas turbine blades, with yields in this area already up by a significant percentage. A further machine, dedicated to production for the aerospace sector, is to be installed by the end of 2014.
An on-site research & development laboratory has been overhauled too, with the introduction of pilot production equipment including an injection moulding machine, mixer and kiln. This is enabling the extended testing of existing material properties and performance.
In addition to the investments being made in equipment, two new manufacturing engineers and two new global business development executives have been employed to service growing business and pursue new opportunities..
Part of Morgan since 2008, the Certech business develops innovative materials which it manufactures into sacrificial cores for investment casting, primarily for manufacturing blades for aerospace engines and industrial gas turbines, but also components for new sectors such as medical and automotive. Its dedicated facilities at Corby and Derby serve major international customers across the globe.
Robert Park from Morgan’s Certech business explained: “The demands from the markets in which we operate are ever-changing and we continue to invest in new processes and materials to maintain and strengthen our market-leading position in the area of sacrificial cores. With validations from the leading players in each sector, we are able to combine state-of-the-art materials and design with agile, responsive service and complete traceability.”
