- Fan case



GKN Aerospace is an established market leader in the design and production of metallic fan cases. GKN Aerospace pioneered the use of roll-formed and welded aluminium extrusions, with close tolerance machining and chem-milling Unistructure technology. GKN Aerospace’s technology offers significant benefits over forged and machined solutions.


  • Unistructure designs provide significant weight savings compared with structurally equivalent single shell designs
  • Experience with engine module assembly feeds back into our design and process engineering approach to fabricating the fan case components
  • Benefits include lower input weight and reduced logistics associated with transporting large forgings
