Take our bleed air valve: high pressure air travelling through a cast design is one of the biggest causes of noise on take off and landing.
Meggitt Applied Research & Technology has developed a radically new design based on a fir cone. Not only does the air flow much more quietly though it, there are fewer parts and it’s lighter too.
Looking ahead, we’re rethinking everything from heat exchangers and brake manifolds to integrated metal matrix composites.
The future is taking the boldest new shape we can imagine.
