Metal matrix composites constitute an attractive class of materials which must be considered as serious candidates for application in advanced gas turbine engines. Materials development programs have been successful in fabricating and characterizing metallic composite materials. Demonstration programs have shown that aerospace structural components can be fabricated from them. This paper deals with the application of the diffusion bonding process to the formation of a complex shape such as a gas turbine engine fan blade from titanium or aluminum matrix composites. It deals with the route to volume producibility rather than with the documentation of progress to date.
