News service Business Courier (Cincinnati, Ohio, USA) reported on April 23 that Cincinnati-based GE Aviation will make an announcement in the next 60 to 90 days about a new ceramic matrix composites (CMC) production site to produce parts for aircraft engines.
According to the report, GE Aviation CEO David Joyce, who was meeting with reporters after parent company General Electric Co.’s first quarter earnings were reported, didn’t share any additional details about the production site.
The report says GE Aviation recently tested an engine core that achieved the highest temperatures ever recorded inside the compressor and the turbine, a core made of CMCs.
