Gas Turbine Components for Power Generation

Large Industrial Gas Turbine (IGT) blades and vanes make up the major proportion of parts produced at Howmet Japan.

IGTs are used for primary power generation in large scale power plants.

Small or mid-sized gas turbines are used in large buildings, hospitals, commercial facilities or airports as emergency power sources.

In recent years greater engine demands have driven a change from conventional Equiax to DS(Directional Solidification) or SC(Single Crystal) castings.
