Aluminium castings for Next Generation Product Family (NGPF) of engines that power the Airbus A320neo, Airbus A220, Embraer E2 series and Mitsubishi MRJ aircraft enforced the Magellan Aerospace (Magellan) to sign up a six-year agreement with Pratt & Whitney where Magellan expects to generate around C$81m in revenue through 2023. Under this agreement, the castings will be manufactured at Magellan’s agencies in Haley, Ontario, Canada, and Glendale, Arizona, US.
Haydn Martin, Magellan Business Development-Marketing and Contract vice president said: “This new agreement will convey Pratt & Whitney to enhance the supply of internal security with Magellan for dual sourcing these castings between two manufacturing facilities in Canada and the USA eventually leading to de-risking of the supply chain. “Magellan will also utilize the latest advanced sand casting technologies, specifically 3D sand printing and automated pouring to manufacture these components.”
Brandon Barrett, Pratt & Whitney strategic sourcing manager stated that, we look forward and feel immense pleasure to continue growth with Magellan Aerospace in signing this agreement and believe that Magellan is investing in the right technologies at both of its facilities to ensure complex castings for Pratt & Whitney’s NGPF engines.
Magellan provides advanced technologies in the aerospace sand casting industry with complex assemblies and systems solutions to manufacture advanced aircraft and engines in defence and space agencies globally where they can betterment the possibilities of enchasing the new technologies. In the earlier months Magellan had also signed an agreement with Hamilton Sundstrand, a UTC Aerospace Systems Company, for the manufacture of complex magnesium and aluminium castings for military and commercial aerospace platforms where the castings will be produced by Magellan’s facilities in Haley, Ontario, and Glendale, Arizona, to support the JSF, PW1100, A320, 787 and 777 programmes with the latest technology.
