Biomimicry, winglets, laminar flow, and longer wing spans all contribute to delivering lower fuel consumption, lower operating costs, longer flights, and higher maximum take-off weight. Composites have changed aircraft designs and expansion in the aftermarket; as well as high demand for production rate improvements, REACH Compliance, and non-conformities are affecting manufacturing of structures. Technologies such as additive manufacturing are also challenging existing engineering competencies, processes, methods, and software tools.
Our aerostructures team provides innovative wing and fuselage subassembly design solutions from preliminary design, weight optimization, through to certification—in collaboration with leading aircraft OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers. We combine customer-specific design processes with our extensive metallic and composite structures knowledge, value engineering techniques, and design automation expertise to design cost effective next-generation aerostructures.
Cyient also caters for end-to-end aircraft support, through conceptual design, program management—from preliminary design to drawing release ahead of schedule, performing check stress analysis, and report delivery for certification.
Upon design release, we manage manufacturing non-conformance, stress justifications, and design office dispositions after signatory approvals. To further enhance revenue for our customers, we also manage aftermarket value streams—such as structural repair engineering, technical publications, reliability engineering, and retrofit engineering, including passenger-to-cargo conversion.
Our aerostructures solutions include:
|Composite structures design, analysis and layup tool manufacturing capabilities||Design, analysis and tooling for composite fuselage skin panels, wing panels, and interior structures, like composite tie rods.|
|Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) tools||Development of automated solutions for repetitive engineering tasks.|
|Reverse engineering of non-critical aircraft products||Design, build, test and certification per FAA-PMA regulations.|
|End-to-end aircraft structures lifecycle management||Performing conceptual design through manufacturing, liaisons, qualification, testing, certifications, maintenance, and aftermarket services.|
|CAD data conversion and digitization services||Performing data conversion for structures, systems, and composites from Catia V4 to V5, Mylar to V5 MBD / Mylar to UG NX.|
|Tolerance stack up analysis||Performing Fit, Form & Function Analysis using manual methods or applications, like 3DCS.|
