AEROSPACE ENGINEERING IN CANADA AND BEYOND

Located in Canada, Avior offers aerospace engineering and design services to local and international aircraft manufacturers that support their requirements for aircraft structures and composite tooling. We take a proactive approach in seeking value engineering opportunities with evolving designs and methods that reduce cost or weight for their aircraft structures. As a leading aerospace manufacturer, Avior provides a unique perspective given our experience in both composites and metal fabrication. Our teams can assess the manufacturability of new design solutions and optimize them using different materials.

At Avior Integrated Products, we are proud to say that we successfully participated in value engineering projects with Boeing, Bombardier, De Havilland, and BellFlight.

COMMITTED TO FINDING SOLUTIONS FOR OUR CUSTOMERS

The current challenge in the development of a new aircraft is finding the ideal balance between cost and weight. This balance will often change over time as aircraft performance evolves and cost objectives change. Our engineering design and methods teams are committed to identifying opportunities for our customers to achieve their goals.

In 2016, Avior was nominated by Boeing for the Supplier of the Year Pathfinder Award. This award recognizes suppliers that are actively seeking innovative cost reduction solutions.

Optimization

The selection of materials and manufacturing processes has a direct impact on cost and weight objectives. Our approach is to look for opportunities to reduce part count in an assembly by using the optimum combination of composites and metal details. This strategy allows for weight reduction and reduced assembly time.

Design Capabilities

Avior utilizes a number of tools in its approach to the design of a product or a tool. This includes using the latest design and programming software and leveraging in-house 3D printing technology for prototype development and tool development. The use of prototypes fabricated through our FDM and SLA printers for proof of concept allows for greater innovation in tool design and cost optimization.

Our design capabilities include:

  • Specializing in composites, metal aircraft structures, and plastics
  • Reverse engineering

  • New product development
  • Design Improvement

Tooling

Avior provides in-house tool design and fabrication. Leveraging our fabrication capabilities in metal and composites allows for the optimum tool design to meet cost and performance objectives.

Some of the types of tools designed in-house includes:

  • Form blocks
  • Layup molds (Aluminum, Steel, Invar, Graphite, Glass)
  • Master models
  • Fixtures (Checking, Milling, Trim)
