Magnetic Engines, a subsidiary of Magnetic MRO Total Technical Care provider for aircraft operators and lessors, has performed its first combustion chamber replacement on a CFM56-7B engine.
Combustion chamber replacement is one of the new services added to the company’s capabilities list after the purchase of new tooling last year and one of the first projects since the new brand launch last month, performed by the team under Magnetic Engines name.
’’This was a historical event for the engine shop, a small step for mankind but a big change for us. We strongly believe that demand for light and hospital repairs will grow even higher as the airlines and asset owners would be trying to optimize its cash flow and perform lighter repairs or modular replacements where possible postponing overhauls for the future. And our newly extended capabilities when we can offer hospital repair in the engine hot section, replacement of LPT Major module and partial repair of LPT Major module, replacement of Fan modules, and so on will allow us to support the majority of hospital repairs on CFM56-3, CFM56-5B and CFM56-7B engine types and provide airlines and asset owners with fast and efficient repair solutions’’, shared Alexey Ivanov, Executive Sales Director at Magnetic Engines.
In 2020, engine department had over 70 engine repair related events, including top case repairs, fan and hot-section module replacements, preservation and other.
