China double-completed trial production of titanium alloy die forgings for ARJ-21 new regional aircraft

Following the completion of the CR929 wide-body passenger aircraft landing gear main outer tube forging trial production work, China's two-owned Wanhang Company once again sent good news, completed the ARJ-21 new regional aircraft full-machine titanium alloy die forgings trial production work. It is reported that this is another major breakthrough in the development of domestic civil aircraft forgings after the C919 large passenger aircraft.

  The ARJ-21 regional airliner is an aircraft with independent intellectual property rights developed by China in accordance with international standards. The ARJ-21 includes a range of models including basic, freight and business models. At present, the total number of ARJ-21 regional aircraft orders is 473, which has broad market prospects.

  The successful trial production of the CR929 wide-body passenger aircraft from the outer tube forgings has enabled Wanhang to move towards a new journey of localization of larger, heavier and more difficult landing gear forgings. In the future, Wanhang will adhere to the mission of “big press to serve a big aircraft” and play a good role in building a bridge for the domestic use of civil aircraft materials and forgings, and continue to make due contributions to the development of China's civil aircraft industry.
