Bringing fresh, new qualities to the table, you’ll already have a solid idea of your strengths. But with a whole career ahead of you, you won’t want to miss the opportunity of developing and unlocking new potentials.
Breakthroughs include our volumetrically efficient heat exchanger, a new design for aerospace using Meggitt technology tried and tested in oil and gas.
To maximise heat transfer at very high temperatures, we chemically etch channels with highly complex geometries onto individual metal plates, laminated using diffusion bonding.
Unlike traditional plate-and-fin and shell-and-tube exchangers, our laminated heat exchanger design can be formed in more complex 3D shapes to make the best use of available space.
Factoring in apertures for pipework from other equipment and integrating other functions within a single component are planned for the prototype.
Brainchild of Group Technology Director, Keith Jackson, and graduate engineer, Tom Newman, it was designed by Meggitt graduates on placement at the UK’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre.
With its flexible fixturing, laser projection and data capture, the workbench is already driving big gains in output, quality, repeatability and traceability.

So whatever your role, you’ll look for better ways of working each and every day. If your idea can be scaled up, we want you to test it out, spread the word and keep on improving it.
Read up on Meggitt’s Lean expert, Louis Chavez, one of the architects of MPS.
Our latest breakthroughs would not have happened without the people making them happen – from Graduates to Group Directors.
From aircraft braking systems and turbine monitoring to mission-critical ice protection, Meggitt leads the world in our specialist aerospace and energy capabilities.
Our existing solution cuts 50% of the energy consumed by a traditional bleed air system. We’ve now got a 90% reduction in our sights.
Using a unique application of microwave sensing, we can now tell clearance control systems how far to shrink the gap between turbine tip and fan casing to within 0.25mm of blade contact.
The result? 1% increase in fuel efficiency, 10% reduction in noxious emissions.
Tiny variable capacitance accelerometers pepper its hot surfaces. They are able to compensate for temperature-related errors occurring between, say, vibration measurement at room temperature and 105˚C at the speed of sound.
The global error is below 2.5%—a remarkable achievement for a commercial production unit.
High intensity focused ultrasound, as it’s known, creates a very high energy density which can target and heat tissue with great accuracy.
A two-minute procedure can reduce the pressure on the optic nerve within the eyeball that causes blindness in glaucoma—a disease that affects 60 million people worldwide.
