COMPOSITES IN AEROSPACE
We have earned our position as a leading aerospace composite manufacturer through multiple successful long-term design and development programs within the sector. As a result, our extensive knowledge and understanding of the aerospace industry enables us to look at new methods within our composites manufacturing processes to provide composite components that are stronger & lighter while remaining cost effective.
Composite materials are proven to be significantly superior to conventional materials in strength-to-weight ratio, which is one of the most important requirements of aerospace structures. Successful composite designs provide design flexibility, lightweight parts allowing ease of fabrication and installation. Criteria such as corrosion resistance, impact resistance, high fatigue strength & simplicity are all qualities that composites offer over and above metal fabricated structures with the same dimensions.
THE COMPLETE PACKAGE
Due to the increasing demand, environmental regulations and rising fuel & running costs, the aerospace industry is turning to advanced composites to provide a lightweight & strong solution. Composite materials now play a key role in the production of modern military, business and commercial aircraft along with many other service, support and training roles within the aerospace industry.
We can tailor composites and their manufacturing processes specifically to given design constraints for aerospace projects. The superior physical properties of composites allow for design with minimum concern for dimensional stability and crack formation. While it is possible to tailor the properties of a composite structure to minimise problems in these areas, we ensure that all potential material issues are taken into consideration during the design process.
Our services include research & development, CNC master patterns, mould tooling through to component manufacture. Engineering, FEA and Non Destructive Testing (NDT). NORCO offers a complete managed customer package.
