Matrix Composites Delivers Low Rate Initial Production Turbine Blade Spacers to Arnold Air force Base

August 21, 2013

 August 6, 2013 – Matrix Composites, Inc. Rockledge FL.  Matrix Composites, Inc. today delivered its final Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) Composite Wind Tunnel Blade Spacer to the United States Air Force.  The multi-million dollar contract was awarded in 2011 for an initial quantity of nine LRIPs to be followed by the manufacture of more than 200 production Spacers. Full rate production efforts are expected to extend into 2015.

Composite Turbine Blade Spacer Assembly

The composite Turbine Blade Spacer Assemblies are highly complex, fully integrated structures that are used in the PWT 16T C-1 compressor at AEDC’s testing facility in Tennessee. The transonic compressor is approximately 36 feet in diameter and is powered by electric motors totaling nearly 300,000 horsepower. Utilizing carbon fiber construction and Matrix’s expertise in composites design and precision closed-molding, Matrix was able to significantly increase performance and durability from the previous spacer design. In addition to the improved performance, the Matrix engineering team reduced the weight of each assembly by 27 pounds (or 60%).

“This last LRIP delivery from Matrix marks a major milestone for the program”, said Dan Simpson, Matrix Composites’ Engineering Director. “Our team worked diligently to ensure that all programmatic objectives were met and that this critical milestone was accomplished on-time.” 

Matrix Composites’ President David Nesbitt adds, “Utilization of state-of-the-art closed molding methods has enabled our team to create an optimized solution for this high-load, high-fatigue environment. It’s a good example of what can be achieved when the right materials are combined with the right manufacturing methods.  A 60% weight reduction is significant and will ultimately enhance aerodynamic and propulsion testing capability for our military.”
