Strategic Business Unit
Doncasters Combustion Systems Division manufactures highly engineered turbine engine ready components and systems for the power generation and aerospace industries. We can provide OEM customers with "one stop shopping" for their combustion system components and high temperature needs. We are committed to the long term success of our customers. We believe in value-added partnerships where we work with the customer's design team to solve complex design and manufacturing challenges. Additionally, we continue to support our customers during all the phases of the product's lifecycle – from research and development, during production, and later in field service support for repair and overhaul. The Combustion Systems Division has strategic manufacturing locations in the United States in Indiana, Illinois and California as well as in the UK.
Evansville manufactures high-temperature components such as industrial turbine engine combustors, rear support covers, main combustors, augmenter liners, aerospace exhaust nozzle components, and an ever-growing list of components from materials such as high-temperature super alloys, nickel and stainless steels. The manufacturing methods employed include diffusion bonding, robotic welding, and, five and six axis cutting and machining.
In addition, the Evansville facility supports various military development programs with diffusion bonding and internal cooling geometries. Evansville built jet engine exhaust nozzle components for the F-22 Raptor fighter and currently supports several systems on the Joint Strike Fighter program.
Evansville has more than 55,000 square feet of capacity in our ISO 9001/AS9100 certified state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
