Airbus Helicopters startet den groß angelegten Druck von A350-Verriegelungswellen

Airbus Eröffnungsevent 300x200 - Airbus Helicopters startet den groß angelegten Druck von A350-Verriegelungswellen

Airbus Helicopters startet die Produktion von Verriegelungswellen für die Türen von A350-Passagierflugzeugen mit 3D-Fertigung gestartet. Die gedruckten Bauteile sind billiger herzustellen und wiegen weniger als ihre Pendants, die mit traditionellen Mitteln hergestellt werden, und helfen Airbus dadurch, immer kostengünstigere und umweltfreundlichere Flugzeuge anzubieten. Airbus Helicopters in Donauwörth fertigt Türen für alle Airbus-Flugzeugprogramme als Zulieferer. Die Neukonstruktion [...]
