For many years the Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute of Aviation has been growing its research and test infrastructure by gradually adding new labs – from the Materials Laboratory, through Controls and Jet Engines Facilities, the Repair Technologies Development Center, the Bearings and Components Lab, to Aviation Additive Laboratory.
One of our newest investments is the Gas Turbines Center – built with support of European Union funds, it is currently one of the most advanced centers for gas turbines in the world. The center’s innovation workshop with its prototyping room equipped with specialist apparatus such as 3D printers enables our engineers to build various models and prototypes. The repair shop is dedicated to fitting, soldering, welding and sanding works, while the assembly shop is the spot for tests, simulations and trainings. Finally, the GT Center’s vacuum chamber allows testing most components designed at EDC without the need to rescale them.
