Officials of ENAER and Lockheed Martin have signed a Memorandum of Agreement for the transfer of an autoclave that will allow ENAER to manufacture advanced composite material parts for current and future generations of commercial and military aircraft. Because of their light weight, strength and durability, composite material components are used in increasing amounts in aircraft such as the EMBRAER ERJ-135/145, the F-16, the F-22 Raptor and the Joint Strike Fighter. The transfer of this equipment is the next phase in a series of cooperative activities that ENAER and Lockheed Martin have implemented over the last two years to build a long-term relationship. Lockheed Martin already has transferred some key production, management and manufacturing technologies to ENAER. As part of the process to improve efficiencies and technologies at ENAER, Lockheed Martin production experts have reviewed manufacturing technologies and control procedures at the facility.
