GE Aviation's Singapore service operation has started producing new blade dampers and seals for GE's CF6 and CF34 aircraft and LM marine engines.

The first production parts were shipped on 22 January, says GE Aviation.

Its Singapore site repairs and refurbishes high- and low-pressure turbine blades and vanes, combustors, rotating parts and seals for more than 100 aircraft engine customers around the world.

"Since 1981, the employees at the Singapore facility have demonstrated their outstanding component repair capabilities," says Jamie Regg, general manager of Turbine Airfoils Centre of Excellence, GE Aviation.

"GE is confident this same commitment to excellence will continue as the site begins manufacturing these small components for GE's popular CF6, CF34 and LM engines."
