WESTT SEV Full Engine Assembly Station

WESTT SEV is an educational assembly station of a real turbofan engine which makes innovative technology available to its users, thus making WESTT SEV an ideal tool for teaching at all levels of study.

It features:

  • A modular design allowing team work
  • A dedicated tooling set and intuitive documentation conceived especially for the needs of education
  • A simple and compact turbofan architecture appropriate for all study levels
  • A high-end technology particularly suitable to maintenance training and mechanical engineering studies

Fields of Application

The WESTT SEV station includes a real turbofan engine and is therefore ideal for all applications dealing with aircraft engine design. In general mechanics and mechanical engineering:

  • Introduction to turbo machinery
  • Study of technological parts (gearbox, bearings, turbines …)
  • Thermal and hydraulic studies of the engine
  • Metrology

In aviation maintenance and maintenance engineering

  • EASA Part-66 Aircraft Maintenance Basic Training
  • Assembling and disassembling technics
  • Assembly plan’s design and tasks parallelisation
  • Troubleshooting and repair

Features

The WESTT SEV station consists of:

  • A full DGEN 380 turbofan engine
  • A dedicated engine support stand with crank handles (which enable the engine’s rotation and axial movement) and integrated wheels to improve the station’s mobility
  • Complete documentation including assembly/disassembly plans, DGEN drawings and educational sketches
  • Standard and specific tools in their dedicated storage cart
  • Two other storage carts for all the engine parts
  • A maintenance manual
  • An electronic bay that integrates the engine’s oil system and electrical control in order to validate the reassembly by starting the engine’s ventilation
  • A touch-screen computer to run the virtualized 3D assembly plan powered by 3DVia®, the engine’s mechanical exploration tool as well as great animations of the DGEN’s oil & fuel systems.
