Chromalloy Mexicali Facility at PIMSA I
Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico
During the last months of 2015, three members of the engineering staff of Chromalloy Mexicali, an aerospace company provider of repair solutions and components manufacturing for aircraft engines, located at PIMSA; received a patent by the US Patent and Trademark Office, after having invented a repair for a turbine engine component of commercial aircraft, offering a new and innovative repair solution in each of the parts, materials, services and customer care.
The team worked for several months to design, test, retest and validate the repair. Driven by the challenges of the individual needs of Chromalloy’s customers; Xuan Nguyen-Dinh, Roberto Flores Sandoval and Ben Blumanstock describe the patent as “providing the process to restore displaced or worn parts on a segment of the turbine vanes.”
The job consisted in replicate an existing manual OEM repair so they could identify their deficits and opportunities for improvement and ultimately design a new repair that exceeds specifications and performance of the manual repair.
