LORD Corporation signs contract to design and build engine mount system for the Irkut MC-21 aircraft

LORD Corporation - a leader in the management of vibration, noise and motion control - has secured the contract to design and build the engine mount system for the Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1400G engine on the Irkut MC-21 family of aircraft.

The contract was awarded by Bombardier Belfast, the firm responsible for the design, manufacture and aftermarket support of the complete engine nacelle system.

"This is the latest of a list of growing programs secured by LORD in the commercial transport aircraft market," said Marc Papie, Global Fixed Wing Market Manager for LORD Corporation. "This experience sets LORD apart in accommodating rigid or compliant engine attachment requirements for the widest range of commercial engines."

The MC-21 engine mounting system attaches the engine directly to the pylon using fireproof stainless steel components in a statically determinant manner. The mount system also comprises internally redundant (fail-safe) design features in the forward and aft mounts to ensure maximum reliability. LORD has been designing and supplying aircraft engine mount systems since 1934, and to date, these systems have accrued more than one billion flight hours on aircraft such as the B737, B757, B767 and MD90.

“The LORD technology team has developed a number of design and analytical tools to reduce cycle times. LORD Corporation's experienced design teams provide superior design flexibility during the early phases of development. The development function is supported by a world-class manufacturing facility and supply chain. Finally, a proven product support team and FAA repair station ensure long-term service required of today's advanced aircraft programs,” said Papie.
