For over 20 years, Calspan has supported our aero engine customers by instrumenting and assembling demonstrator engines. As a vertically integrated designer and manufacturer of turbomachinery test equipment, Calspan combines the ability to engineer, manufacture, instrument, and assemble engines and the equipment to adapt them to the engine test facility. We collaborate closely with our engine OEM development teams to solve the typical first (or early) engine to test technical issues as they arise. We have a large suite of generic build tooling and equipment, and the in-house capability to efficiently design and manufacture any special engine assembly tooling needed. Our team of expert engineers and instrumentation/assembly technicians are dedicated to meeting all of your development engine testing goals.
Our vertically integrated in-house capability, from engineering through to test readiness, minimizes hand-offs, assures quality, and reduces cost and lead-time to build development engines.
We are experts at instrumenting and building development engines in a robust but flexible non-union environment. We can free up your team to focus on critical production build efforts.
Talk to us about your demonstrator engine instrumentation and assembly needs. Our experts are ready to help you define an approach that best meets your engine validation program.
Demonstrator Engines - We often receive specialized parts from your engine parts suppliers and modify these parts to accept development instrumentation. We also design and manufacture special demonstrator engine parts in-house, apply the instrumentation to components and modules, and design and manufacture any special tooling and test equipment. Calspan has the capability and experience to build your development engine and ensure your successful test.
