Operators of Honeywell’s TPE331 engine can now rely on RUAG Aviation, an expert provider of engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, to keep their engines in top-notch condition so they can take to the skies with confidence.
RUAG Aviation, an EASA and FAA repair station with over 60 years of experience in engine MRO, is the latest addition to Honeywell's network of Authorized Service Centres providing full overhaul services on the TPE331-5 and -10 engine models.
RUAG’s centrally based European Engine Centre of Excellence in Stans, Switzerland recently underwent a successful reorganisation with the implementation of LEAN principles in early 2017. The engine shop’s upgrade to the latest industry standards is the culmination of a wider transformation project that examined all aspects of operations at the dedicated facility, everything from workstation ergonomics and processes, to training, planning and documentation, in order to identify areas for greater efficiency potential. RUAG Aviation customers are already experiencing the benefits of the enhanced and optimised operation, with a significant reduction in lead times.
A state-of-art Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) correlated dynamometer test bed expands the capabilities available at the RUAG Engine Test Centre. Expert test cell engineers perform TPE331engine maintenance testing to the highest standard on the in-house test bed, while the smooth sounds of the TPE331 turboprop engine provide the perfect balance to the noise of jet engine testing which previously dominated the workshop.
In addition to scheduled and unscheduled engine maintenance, RUAG offers a range of tailored solutions designed to reduce engine-related service events, to ensure engine availability, and to support specific customer requirements, such as spares management and provisioning of rental engines.
RUAG Aviation is dedicated to safeguarding aircraft availability through profound knowledge and reliable services in the fields of maintenance, engineering, and testing. This now applies to TPE331 engine MRO, as well. Every engine leaving the shop goes through a rigorous test regimen to ensure that the engine is ready to perform to the highest standards. TPE331 operators all over the world can now reach for the skies thanks to RUAG Aviation and their dedicated team.
