Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI), and Boeing signed a cooperation agreement with the aim of improving compliance with aviation standards thermoplastic parts manufacturing capability in Turkey. With this new agreement, a new one has been added to the ongoing cooperation of BOEING and TAI.
TUSAŞ General Manager Prof. Dr. Temel Kotil said about the collaboration: “We are excited to sign a new collaboration with our strategic partner BOEING. We will continue to increase the direction of new production technologies and the aviation sector with such important collaborations. As the company that guides the most important projects of our country, we will reduce the cost significantly by making our Thermoplastic investments by realizing high quality production. "
Ayşem Sargın, General Manager of Boeing Turkey, said, “This agreement adds a new dimension to both Boeing and TAI's long-standing partnership. kazanAs well as expanding the scope of our Technology Cooperation included in the National Aviation Plan, our Turkey investment program that we announced in 2017. Projects such as this that make radical contributions to the development of Turkish aviation are also an indication of our trust in Turkey, which we see as an important technology partner, and our commitment to permanent cooperation.” said.
TAI has made a new investment for the design and production of thermoplastic composite parts, which will take place in future aircraft and incorporate high capacity rapid production technology, with the technical support and experience gained from the cooperation with BOEING. With the project called "High Efficiency Affordable Rapid Thermoplastic - HEART", it is foreseen that high-quality thermoplastic composite parts will reduce the cost in the product cycle and process areas by 30% compared to conventional composites.
TAI has a high-capacity, high-quality and fast production technology facility with fully automated machines, as well as the ability to produce thermoplastic composites. kazanit's gone. The facility, which will also allow the training of technical personnel who will work in this field, will produce world-class thermoplastic composite parts with domestic and national resources.
IT WILL SAVE ENERGY AND COSTS
TAI has put into service a new facility that will enable the production of fully automated and high quality parts without human touch, using thermoplastic materials that provide energy and cost savings, as well as reducing the weight of aircraft with the technical support it has obtained under the agreement it signed with Boeing. The agreement in question; Boeing is adding a new dimension to the long-standing successful partnership with TAI, the company is strengthening its strategic cooperation with Turkey and Turkey's National Aerospace Plan also important in terms of strengthening their cooperation in the field of technology.
Thermoplastic composites to be produced at high quality will be candidates to produce parts in various sizes and geometries for use in the aviation industry, especially TUSAŞ's original products.
