Airborne develops and installs automated composite manufacturing cells for the production of small to medium sized composite aerospace parts enabling our customers to reduce cost and lead times. Our concept is based on off the shelve robotics using interchangeable end effectors resulting in a low costs, high flexible, modular solutions. All developed automated solutions are implemented in our own composite facilities and will be implemented at our customers based on “Prove and Move” principles.
Our solutions are beneficial for typical parts like ribs, stringers, beams, skin panels, couplings, splices and door surroundings. Parts that can be found in the fuselage, wings and empennage of the aircraft. Airborne will run the necessary non-recurring efforts to get (re)qualified. Once the rate readiness and robustness of the automated production solutions have proven to be stable, we will transfer our automated production solutions into your facilities. Or in case you prefer, Airborne can continue the production at its own facilities.
Since our foundation in 1995 we have been working for OEM’s and their Tier-1 suppliers and put our signature on Boeing, Airbus, Gulfstream and Dassault aircrafts.
