The aerospace industry relies on the innovation of parts and materials to improve safety in the air while reducing the cost of manufacturing parts and products. The integrity of every element in an aircraft must meet strict requirements. Detecting defects in these parts is critical. Visual inspections, while technically 'non-destructive', aren’t enough to meet the quality control needs of the aerospace industry. Aerospace non-destructive testing is a way of inspecting and evaluating products that are manufactured for the aerospace industry without affecting the end product. What is Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and How is it Used in Aerospace? Since safety is [...]
The celebration that took place at Avior Integrated Product at the Montreal facility on April 28th, marked Avior’s 1500th delivery of Bell Helicopter 407 Swashplate. The event marked the long-standing relationship between Bell and Avior and demonstrated the success of this unparalleled 407 helicopter model.
Avior has introduced its first collaborative robot or “Cobot” that is portable and can be easily moved to different production cells to perform repetitive specialized functions. The small robot is fully integrated into Avior’s ERP. The initial trials are being used for loading and unloading small 3 axis machined parts. The system is compatible with multiple machines and utilizes an optical scanner to identify parts as it loads parts into machines. This unique system provides maximum flexibility to accommodate multiple parts autonomously. The collaborative flexible cell will be introduced in other departments in 2020 and 2021.
Avior Integrated Products was honored last evening with an Industry Excellence Award at the Canadian Aerospace Summit in Ottawa, hosted by the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada. The Small Business Innovation Technology Award recognizes a business whose advanced or innovative technologies have contributed to making Canada a strong and rapidly growing innovation economy and continue making a positive impact within the industry and community. In accepting the award, Mr. Stephen Kearns, President and CEO, said “We are very grateful to the AIAC as it represents industry validation of our strategic commitment to continue investing in methods, equipment and people to [...]
Avior has recently augmented its capabilities in aerospace CNC machining by completing the installation of a new Matsuura 5-axis high-speed vertical machining center. This addition is specifically targeted to boost the production of large aluminum parts essential in the aerospace industry. The Matsuura MX-850, with its substantial working envelope of D 32” x H 26”, is a significant step forward in aligning with Avior's automation strategy. Notably, this advanced machining center will be integrated with a Kuka robot for automated parts loading, showcasing Avior's commitment to innovation in aerospace CNC machining in CY2021. The following are the basic specifications of [...]
