HBM nCode’s nCode Automation has been selected by Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse as its preferred tool for performing robust and automated analyses.
Liebherr-Aerospace produces aviation equipment including flight control and actuation systems, landing gear and air management systems as well as gearboxes for civil and military sectors.
"Our challenge was to find a solution that addressed the analysis needs of our different service sectors and did not require programming knowledge,” said Julien André, Chief Project Development Testing Service at Liebherr-Aerospace. “nCode Automation, with its user-friendly interface, allows the five sectors of our Developmental Testing Services to collaborate and analyse the constant stream of data generated by the 28 test cells at our test centre.”
With this software adoption, HBM-nCode says it and Liebherr-Aerospace are continuing and strengthening their technical partnership. In addition to nCode Automation, Liebherr-Aerospace has also been a long-time user of nCode DesignLife for simulating the life of their equipment to ensure sustainability and nCode GlyphWorks for robust analysis of their test data.
“We are pleased that Liebherr-Aerospace has expanded their use of nCode software to support the development and maintenance of their equipment,” said Steve Tudberry, HBM-nCode’s Chief Operating Officer. “This new implementation at Liebherr confirms our innovative and growing applications within the aerospace industry worldwide.”
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.
Fibrelite reports that since the start of its partnership with Trenwa more than 100 precast trench systems integrating Fibrelite composite covers have been sold for use in electrical substations, wastewater treatment plants, chemical refineries and many other applications across North America.
