Rolls-Royce orders Pearl 10X parts from FACC

(IMAGE: FACC) has been commissioned by Rolls-Royce with the development and manufacture of composite components for the new Pearl 10X engine. The British engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce has used FACC’s products in the production of its engines for civil aviation for more than 20 years. Most recently, FACC was commissioned by Rolls-Royce to develop and manufacture the complete composite package for the Pearl 10X engine. In addition to the bypass ducts and maintenance doors, FACC will also be supplying the fan track liners, the spinner and the cable bushing.

“With the Pearl 10X, Rolls-Royce is offering the business aviation market a groundbreaking, high-performance engine. The fact that Rolls-Royce has selected us as a technology partner for its new premium product once again confirms our leading position in the field of lightweight solutions for aircraft engines,” said Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC AG.

Rolls-Royce officially unveiled the Pearl 10X, the third and most powerful member of the Pearl engine family for the business aviation market, in early May. Compared to the previous generation of Rolls-Royce engines for business jets, the Pearl 10X boasts a 5  percent increase in efficiency combined with excellent noise and emissions characteristics. With its sophisticated component design, high-tech materials and advanced manufacturing technologies, FACC is able to assist Rolls-Royce in making engines more efficient, lighter and quieter.

“Engines are among the most highly stressed high-performance aircraft components – the production of their component parts is highly complex and requires the skill of experienced experts. The production of the outer skin in particular, i.e. the outer layer of the bypass duct for the Pearl 10X, calls for the highest precision in addition to state-of-the-art manufacturing processes,” said Günter Nelböck, Vice President Engines & Nacelles and Aerostructures of FACC. “FACC’s outstanding performance and excellent customer support play a key role in meeting the customer’s expectations.”
