Gas Turbine Operations
Gas Turbine Operations is located in Milford, NH adjacent to corporate headquarters. Established in 1983 as Hitchiner's® Gas Turbine Division, the organization has experienced steady growth since its inception. This division primarily services the jet engine component market and specializes in producing hot-section parts requiring sophisticated vacuum-melted alloys, with emphasis on complex, thin-walled applications.
Gas Turbine Operations utilizes the Countergravity Low-pressure Vacuum melt (CLV) and the Countergravity Pressure Vacuum (CPV) casting processes to produce parts as thin as .015 of an inch. This technological capability, an advantage over the conventional techniques employed by our competitors, has enabled us to create new markets by converting to investment castings many components previously manufactured by more costly combinations of processes.
Gas Turbine Operations is a fully qualified supplier to Pratt & Whitney, General Electric, Westinghouse, Allison, BMW-Rolls Royce, MTU, Sundstrand, Solar and many others. Our ISO-9002 certified quality systems assure this status, and our process advantage assures our dominance as the leading producer of thin-walled vacuum castings.
