With this latest repair dedicated to CFM56, AFI KLM E&M has again demonstrated its lead and its excellence in cutting-edge engine component technologies.
Paris, Amstelveen, 10 April 2015 - Launched in March 2015, the new repair was developed by CRMA, the AFI KLM E&M subsidiary specializing in engine component maintenance. It concerns multi-hole Tech Insertion combustion chamber technology on CFM56 engines. By developing a repair for this new generation combustion chamber, AFI KLM E&M has taken a pioneering stance on a growing market.
A first for an MRO
CRMA is the only European MRO centre and the first "non-OEM" engine shop in the world to offer this particular repair. To achieve this objective, AFI KLM E&M leveraged its proven expertise in multi-hole technology on GE90 and the GP7200 engines. "We were able to build on our experience of the repairs already developed for the GE90 and GP7200," explains CRMA CEO Benjamin Moreau. "We have used similar technologies like multi-hole laser drilling. Our know-how and mastery of these particular technologies helped us speed up the learning curve and master the quality of our repairs."
With this latest addition to its repair catalogue, AFI KLM E&M has further confirmed its excellence in developing ground-breaking repair processes, a major driver in cutting maintenance costs for operating airlines.
