China news agency, Beijing, July 28 – (Yangchun Yuan Li Xiang Tao Shelan) People’s Liberation Army No. 5719 Factory of independent innovation, key components of aircraft engines, and then three generations of manufacturing technology, a breakthrough by a few Western countries to re-manufacture of aircraft engine technology monopoly, the life of three generations of aircraft engines from 900 hours to 1500 hours.
occupies a small town on the Chengdu Plain of 5719 plants, is part of the Department of the Air Force equipment, equipment support enterprise, charged with protection of military aircraft engine repair task. The only regular air force of more than 2000 equipment repair company, just a few years completed 63 scientific research, access to more than 20 countries, military scientific and technological progress awards, innovation of military aircraft engine re-manufacturing technology reached the international advanced level; engine repair capacity doubled in 2004, only 11 billion of total assets, after six years to reach 29 billion, assets increased by more than 263%.
2004 years, a new line of aircraft engine maintenance just completed, a number of air forces the engine into the plant urgent repairs. How to quickly form a new type of engine volume repair capability?
plant out the first step is to break the old mode of production and the pattern of interests, a thorough production process reengineering. After eight months of re-deployment of repair resources, the process of reform and repair, repair capacity significantly improved, the average repair cycle engine of a decrease of 27.3%. Since then, they change according to force protection mission, continuous improvement of processes, optimize, repair capacity growth rate of 60% per year, has achieved by the maintenance of second generation to third generation machine, the single species of large quantities of repairs to a multi-machine species, small quantities of maintenance across.
With the large number of new aviation equipment fielded in the military, military aircraft engines the new key, important parts supply, and gradually restricted the air force continued to generate outstanding problems. Crack factory specialized organizations focused on research, innovation, 21 international advanced level of key components of aircraft engines, and then three generations of manufacturing technology, a breakthrough by a few Western countries to re-manufacture of aircraft engine technology monopoly, three generations of Air Force aircraft engine life from 900 hours to 1500 hours, equivalent to a 1.6 engine to play the role of an engine, the defense made a huge military, economic and social benefits.
quality is the lifeline of aircraft engine maintenance. In order to ensure maintenance of quality “zero defect, a fine,” from 2005, 5719 Factory to set up a “quality warning wall”, the great debate of quality construction and other forms to guide staff in the quality of work continuously to strengthen the target class, the pursuit of excellence awareness. Road, 89 meters long in that the quality of warning on the wall, the Air Force in the history of each and every level of air accidents and incidents on the ground, plant history, 10 cases occurred in greater quality, and so impressively in the head. “Cultural casting the soul” to lead to enhance the quality of maintenance, repair, engine plant has numerous, have not occurred for 14 consecutive years, the factory responsible for accidents caused by flight level.
