ST Engineering has released that its Commercial Aerospace business will expand its MRO solutions for the LEAP-1B engine with test cell support, which is expected to be ready by end-2023. The expansion into LEAP-1B test cell capability follows the setting up of quick-turn services for the engine in February this year and the receipt of approval from EASA, FAA and CAAC.
ST Engineering will work with testing and technology development solutions provider, Calspan Aero System Engineering (Calspan ASE), in setting up LEAP-1B test cell capability at its engine MRO facility in Singapore. This LEAP-1B test cell will be the first in Asia-Pacific to implement Calspan ASE’s latest technologies found in its upgraded data acquisition control system and proprietary software, ASE2000LX Version 8. The host of digital tools to be introduced by ST Engineering will enhance the efficiency and performance of aero-engine test cells through automated engine monitoring, process repeatability and data analytics.
