High Performance, Low Cost
The aerospace designer, perhaps more than any other, is continually seeking lighter weights and compactness. This implies precise detailing of components. In non-critical areas, rotational & reaction injection moulded (RIM) plastics can be the best solution and at comparatively low cost.
Some examples of suitable candidates are seat parts, ducting, stowages, flexible gaiters and fluid reservoirs. Rotomoulding & RIM have the major advantage that tooling is lower cost, making it ideal for the short production runs often required by the aviation industry.
Where the appearance of a part is important, Tecni-Form are well placed to provide almost any colour or surface texture needed. They are particularly expert at building up assemblies of plastics and metals, meaning that Tecni-Form can deliver complex components, ready for fitting.
Quality and standards are, of course, of a particularly high order in aviation; Tecni-Form have the correct company ethos and certifications to to meet that requirement and their quality management system is certified to ISO 9001:2008 .
Not Only Aircraft
Have you considered the value of rotomoulded parts in ground service equipment? It is likely that the process will be cost-effective for items like cowlings, housings, consoles, bumpers and ducting. Tecni-Form can achieve sophisticated results with their advanced techniques. They can inject polymer foams into components to give them rigidity and insulating qualities; and with the right combination of metals and plastics, it is possible to make a reliable engineering component with predictable behaviour under load.
Tecni-Form are able to add logos, written or diagrammatic instructions, and warnings into the surface of a moulding. If the right polymer is chosen, enhanced resistance to chemicals, such as aviation fuel, is achievable.
Tecni-Form work constantly on new projects: each one is a challenge to their enthusiastic design team.
