MTU opens its doors and provides insights into the high-tech test center for engine components. A total of 25 million euros were invested in the hall, which is now located in Munich. A state-of-the-art testing facility and a unique multi-function rotary test rig are able to perform 65 different types of tests on engine components, including spin tests, air flow measurements, structural tests, vibration, wear, ballistic and fatigue tests.

The focus is on testing new materials, new designs and larger structures, not only for current engine generations but for entirely new propulsion systems just emerging on the horizon MTUs ultimate goal is emission-free air traffic, and the company is already pushing the development of innovative green propulsion technologies systematically forward.
