Tecnatom will show its first commercial system using phased array technology for through-transmission ultrasonics inspection (PA TTU), that is said to notably reduces the scanning time of components at the Paris Airshow, 15-21 June 2015, in Paris, France.
Tecnatom says the event represents a great opportunity to show the latest advancesin the development and delivery of NDT systems including inspection cells integrated in the manufacturing process to ensure quality and NDT equipment development for manual or automated inspection in maintenance activities.
Maria Teresa Aguado, Deputy Director of Technology and Product Development at Tecnatom said, "we are very proud of participating once more in the most important international aerospace show, and this is the eighth edition we do. This event brings together not only companies from the host country, with a significant weight in the European aviation industry, but also many others international OEMs and Tier Ones. There is no doubt, this international event Paris Air Show-Le Bourget is a must for Tecnatom, where we pretend to show our capacities to be the best technological partner."
Solvay has signed a ten-year agreement for the supply of composites and adhesives to be used across Bell's military and commercial rotorcraft programmes, including the Bell 429, 407, 505, 525, V-22, and UH-1.
SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV have officially opened the Fibre Placement Centre (FPC) at SGL's site in Meitingen, Germany. Compositence, BA Composites and the Chair for Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich have also joined the alliance, and Coriolis Group and Cevotec are planning to come on board as partners.
With the aim developing a broader platform for additive manufacturing (AM) technologies, the University of Exeter, UK, and Victrex, have formed a strategic partnership to introduce next-generation polyaryletherketone (PAEK) polymers and composites while improving the performance of the underlying AM processes.
