„Finding a better way” is an essential part of the corporate philosophy of Rösler that is practiced daily. This is highlighted by the recently concluded cooperation agreement of the Chinese Rösler subsidiary, Rosler Surface-Tech (Beijing) Co., Ltd., with the renowned Huazhong University of Science and Technology, WUXI Institute (HUST) in the field of forward-looking surface treatment technologies for jet engine components.
As one of the top 10 universities in China, the HUST is known for numerous successful research projects in the Chinese high-tech sector. Its research focus is on the fields of aerospace, medicine and robotics. Since 2019 HUST also works on innovative manufacturing technologies for jet engines and the adaptation of these technologies to series production.
The new "Joint Innovation Center for Advanced Manufacturing Surface Treatment Technology" is financed by HUST, AECC and the WUXI government. On the technical side it is supported by Rösler China. Goal of the new innovation center is the development of future-oriented surface refinement methods for BLISKs and compressor, as well as, turbine blades. During a joint visit on the occasion of the opening of the innovation center, Yiling Sun, General Manager of Rösler China, demonstrated a linked system in the form of a rotary vibrator without inner dome (R 420 DL), a transport belt (R 360/3000 FB/T), a vibratory separation unit (R 12/6 SM-E) and a process water cleaning centrifuge (Z 1000 ASS-II-Turbo) to the guests and explained the entire finishing process in detail. On this occasion it was agreed that further investments will be made in the innovation center.
Stephan Rösler, President & CEO of the Rösler Oberflächentechnik GmbH, explains: „The strategic partnership with the Huazhong University of Science and Technology allows us to consolidate and expand our outstanding position in an extremely important market segment. It will enable us to offer even more innovative solutions in the field of equipment and process development for the aerospace industry”.
