A Proud History of Innovation Photos: Top left to right – Charles Rolls and Henry Royce, R-R Silver Ghost 1926, Spitfire & Merlin 1940, STOVL Flying Bedstead (predecessor to harrier) 1954 Key facts: Henry Royce filed held almost 200 patents. From 1937 to 1946 the Merlin engine power had been doubled (1030hp to 2060hp). By 1955 over 150,000 Merlin engines had been produced. The LiftSystem clutch and driveshaft deliver 29,000hp from the engine to the lift fan in 2.5 seconds. The LiftFan produces 20,000lbf thrust. The PM Thruster allows a 25% power increase for the same size propeller.
The Most Complex Challenges Engineering Statistics: Fan blade tips travel at supersonic speeds. The energy to be contained when a fan blade is released is the equivalent to a double decker bus crashing at 60mph. The fan swallows more than a metric ton of air per second. The equivalent of a squash court of air. The turbine blade operates at 200 degrees Celsius above its metal melting temperature. The equivalent is to put an ice cube in an oven, turn it up to max temperature and prevent the ice cube from melting. Each turbine blade provides more power than a formula 1 car. An EJ200 engine on the Eurofighter typhoon produces more power than the entire strating grid of formula 1 cars. Submarine is fuelled for 25 years
Innovation in the Global Supply Chain Openness is about partnership
Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre Network Shows the strong support to the development of several Advanced Manufacturing Centres. These are initiatives funded through Government and a series of tiered partners. They pull manufacturing technology innovations through the “valley of death” from academic or blue sky ideas into industry representative environments, pushing innovations up the TRL/MCRL scales. We are currently engaged with seven centres– 5 in the UK and 2 overseas. The first centre, the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre or AMRC, is located in Rotherham and is operated by the University of Sheffield. It was opened in 2004 with £30m of support from Local Government. The AMRC specialises in machining and measurement. Since opening the centre has gone from strength to strength – the Factory of the Future opened in 2010 and a nuclear facility has been constructed on the same site.

However – Balancing Innovation and being Trusted to Deliver Excellence A Rolls-Royce powered aircraft takes-off or lands every 2.5 seconds. A Trent engine can fly 13500 hours before major services. That’s like going to the moon and back 14 times.
