Innovative carbon composite materials used to produce parts and components with up to 40% weight savings for passenger aircraft.
The composite design engineering company, is introducing a range of ultra-lightweight composite parts and components for aircraft, including specialist aerospace ducting. These parts will not only save operators money but will reduce the overall environmental impact of the aircraft as well.
AVS-SYS has decades experience and expertise in both the design and integration of low pressure air distribution systems for passenger aircraft. The firm initially designed its carbon composite parts for use in the rigid ducting within such systems but it quickly became apparent that this material technology can be used in a variety of other applications, such as galley panels, ceilings and other interior fitments.
The new products are up to 40% lighter than equivalent parts currently in use. This weight saving is delivered without any loss in fit, form or function and parts are manufactured to all relevant aerospace standards. It is estimated that in a narrow body aircraft use of the new ducts in the air distribution system would save up to 60kg in weight, with significant reductions in fuel burn and therefore cost and environmental impact over the full lifecycle of the aircraft.
AVS-SYS provides high quality engineering, design, integration and manufacturing of products and complete systems utilising composite materials. It specialises in the aerospace sector across the full spectrum of commercial/military, fixed/rotary wing and manned/unmanned air vehicles. Its team of class leading, highly experienced professionals provides a level of expertise that is unmatched outside of a major aircraft manufacturer. This enables AVS-SYS to provide complete program management over the lifetime of a project from initial concept design, system integration, manufacturing and qualification through to in-service support.
