Aerostructure Reference Projects

Door Modification Airbus A380

As part of a C-check and other aircraft maintenance work, we reinforced the 16 passenger doors of some Lufthansa and Air France A380 aircraft at several customers, such as the MRO company Elbe Flugzeugwerke Dresden. This is no easy task, and requires the highest levels of precision and compliance with all regulations. First, the door is removed from the A380 and placed in a jig.
We then removed the door insulation and dismantle the cover plates, the mechanics and the seals. Once the door has been stripped, we removed the old structure on the doors and our NDT8 inspector, certified according to EN 4179 L2, carried out the Special Detailed Inspection (SDI) using High-frequency eddy current (HFEC). If the detailed inspection of the doors was carried out without any abnormalities, we continued with the cold deformation of the structural components (flap peening/cold working) - in the process we re-shaped the surfaces and thus removed the symptoms of fatigue from the structural components. Finally, the reinforcement parts, provided by Airbus, were laid onto the doors and provisionally attached using fixation pins, all fasteners and reinforcing components were mounted. After approval from quality assurance, we finally installed the cover plates, the mechanics, the seals, the door components and the door insulation.

Non-Destructive Testing Pilatus PC 24 and Airbus 220

For prototypes of the Pilatus PC 24 and Airbus 220 we examined the wing and the fuselage for our customer iABG in a non-destructive test and examined them for damages (cracks, fractures etc.). However, before our five Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) inspectors could go to work, our aircraft maintenance mechanics dismantled the wing into its structural parts.
In iABG's testing laboratory, specific structural inspections and analyses had to be carried out using non-destructive testing methods - among other things, we tested for cracks; even microscopically small defects are noticeable to us through eddy current testing. We were also able to detect defects in the metallic components with the aid of ultrasonic testing, because we determined the size and position of the defects by measuring the transit time of the ultrasonic echo. Subsequently, we prepared extensive documentation for iABG on all anomalies. The task was a real challenge because we had to put our foot down in only 3.5 months and complete the work. Originally, iABG had calculated a maximum margin of error of 15% for the disassembly of the wings. We were finally able to deliver a defect rate of 0% in the structural assembly, as a result of which all structural components could be handed over to the customer without any defects. Thus, all components could be subjected to the (NDT) tests.
