FACC is tasked with composite component manufacture for Pearl 10X
Thursday, 24 February 2022
FACC has been commissioned by Rolls-Royce - a customer of twenty years standing - with the development and manufacture of composite components for the new Pearl 10X engine.

FACC AG has been commissioned by Rolls-Royce to develop and manufacture composite components for the new Pearl 10X engine.

Rolls-Royce has used FACC's products in the production of its engines for civil aviation for more than 20 years. In addition to the bypass ducts and maintenance doors, FACC will also be supplying the fan track liners, the spinner and the cable bushing. "With the Pearl 10X, Rolls-Royce is offering the business aviation market a groundbreaking, high-performance engine. The fact that Rolls-Royce has selected us as a technology partner for its new premium product once again confirms our leading position in the field of lightweight solutions for aircraft engines," emphasises Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC AG.

Rolls-Royce officially unveiled the Pearl 10X, the third and most powerful member of the Pearl engine family for the business aviation market, in early May. Compared to the previous generation of Rolls-Royce engines for business jets, the Pearl 10X boasts a five percent increase in efficiency combined with excellent noise and emissions characteristics.

"Engines are among the most highly stressed high-performance aircraft components - the production of their component parts is highly complex and requires the skill of experienced experts. The production of the outer skin in particular, i.e. the outer layer of the bypass duct for the Pearl 10X, calls for the highest precision in addition to state-of-the-art manufacturing processes," says Gunter Nelbock, Vice President Engines and Nacelles and Aerostructures.

FACC has once again been admitted to the exclusive Rolls-Royce High Performing Supplier Group, and is one of a select handful of companies to have been a member of this exclusive group of supplier partners since it was created in 2019. "We are very proud that Rolls-Royce has maintained an intensive cooperation with FACC for more than two decades. Being nominated a High Performing Supplier anew and receiving this contract are proof that the outstanding dedication and know-how of our employees are greatly valued by our customers," says Nelbock.
