Rolls-Royce ABCF The Advanced Blade Casting Facility is expected to produce its first blades in late 2014, with the facility capable of manufacturing 100,000 blades per year when fully operational.

The Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Rotherham will be the location for the new Rolls-Royce Advanced Blade Casting Facility (ABCF). The 14,000 m2 facility will be one of the most advanced blade casting facilities in the world, featuring groundbreaking manufacturing techniques such as 3D structured light for geometry inspection. Each blade will be cast to form a single crystal of super alloy, making it extremely strong and able to resist the intense heat inside a jet engine. The single crystal turbine blade is a critical component of the jet engine and there are over 65 in every Trent engine. One single crystal turbine blade extracts around 1000 horsepower from the gas

flow towards the rear of the engine, which is equivalent to the power of an F1 racing car, to drive the engine's compressors. Single crystal turbine blades operate in temperatures up to 200 degrees above the melting point of their alloy and sit in a disc that rotates at more than 12,000 rpm. This means that the centrifugal force exerted on a blade is equivalent to the weight of a London bus. The new facility increases the involvement of Rolls-Royce with the AMP. The AMP Technology Centre houses a Rolls-Royce research and development facility, while the business is a partner in the University of Sheffield's Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing, has the title name at the AMRC's Rolls Royce Factory of the Future and is a partner in the Nuclear AMRC.
