The key ingredient to lightweight structures is the use of advanced composite materials. Our extensive manufacturing capability in aerospace composite products allows us to offer a variety of options in material and part complexity. All of our hybrid structures take advantage of Avior’s broad range of capabilities in composite and metallic details.
A good example of leveraging these capabilities are structures such as engine cowls which are assemblies using machined, sheet metal, and composite components that operate in a high-temperature environment. The composite material used in these hot environments is a carbon fiber material using a BMI resin system.
We also manufacture lightweight hybrid structures such as wing leading edges, fairings, doors, and inlet ducts. All of these structures benefit from our in-house manufacturing and assembly expertise.
