A Path to Recovery: Ramping Up the Aviation Industry
What was the impact of COVID-19 on aviation manufacturing? How is the industry preparing for a production ramp up? How can automation technologies help optmize existing processes? Read this white paper to find out.
Global connectivity and technological advancements are defining characteristics of contemporary times, and the aviation industry stands as a testament to that human innovation and transformation. From the phenomenon of powered flight, as actualized by the Wright brothers, to present-day breakthroughs in aerospace engineering, the aviation industry has reshaped the human perception of distance, time, and opportunity.
While advances in aircraft design and navigation are significant factors in the industry’s ongoing development, one considerable contribution is that of plastics and composites manufacturing. By integrating lightweight, durable, and high-performance materials, aviation manufacturers have pushed aircraft efficiency and innovation to new heights.
Throughout this white paper, you will find an in-depth exploration of several challenges encumbering the aerospace manufacturing industry, along with insight on the use of automation technology to address a few of those challenges. We will also present a case study on a leader in aviation manufacturing and how they used sensXPERT Digital Mold to digitize their composites manufacturing.
