Safran Nacelles is one of the main integrators of aircraft engine nacelle systems in the world. On the long-range commercial aircraft market, Safran Nacelles is the partner of the main aircraft manufacturers, Airbus and Boeing. On the Airbus A380, the nacelle systems designed by Safran Nacelles - the first in the world to be equipped with an electrically-actuated thrust reverser - are a technological reference
Boeing 777X Titanium Nozzles
Safran Nacelles titanium nozzles will equip the Boeing 777X powered by two GE9X engines.
With its experience and proprietary database, Safran Nacelles has optimized the nacelle systems design and manufacturing processes using metal materials and has developed assessment methods of the performance of titanium components on the nozzles. The 777X titanium nozzles will thus have the advantages of being lighter with a greater resistance to heat. In addition, they will incorporate acoustic treatments, also of titanium, to reduce the noise footprint of the engine.
