GE Aviation was in the process of developing a new Jet engine for the aerospace industry. They made a decision based on studies, to improve the surface finish of their turbine blades for this engine in order to increase fuel efficiency. Because of their extensive experience, Bel Air was engaged in a year long study, along with only 2 other companies in the world, to facilitate the improvement of the surface and all associated equipment and process technology for the upcoming production process.
