Lucknow based PTC Industries to produce titanium casting parts for Safran Aircraft Engines


The Indian company PTC Industries and the French aircraft engine manufacturer Safran Aircraft Engines have signed a multi-year contract to develop an industrial cooperation programme for manufacturing casting parts for the LEAP engine.

PTC Industries will produce titanium casting parts for Safran Aircraft Engines to the contract’s requirements. As part of increasing production of the LEAP engine, Safran Aircraft Engines intends to create a comprehensive industrial ecosystem in India and improve its network of worldwide suppliers. This would be done as part of the expansion.

PTC Industries, headquartered in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, offers substantial competence in various cutting-edge casting methods and precise machining. The initial shipment of titanium casting parts for the LEAP engine is anticipated to start in early 2024.

According to Sachin Agarwal, the Chief Executive Officer of PTC Industries, the company is excited to leverage its experience in casting techniques to assist the ambitious production targets of the LEAP programme through the relationship that has been established.

Safran Aircraft Engines, much like the other firms in the Safran group, has a significant presence in India. There are currently five production sites located in the country (scattered across Hyderabad, Bangalore, and Goa), and in the year 2025, there will be a sixth plant located in Hyderabad that will be dedicated to LEAP MRO activities. Seventy-five per cent of Indian commercial fleets are powered by CFM International’s cutting-edge LEAP turbofan engines, making India the world’s third-largest operator of this particular engine model. Today, more than 2,200 LEAP engines are expected to be delivered to Indian airlines after being placed on order.
