Advanced solutions to improve component fatigue life and aircraft assembly
CAPAERO has a strong expertise in fatigue life enhancement by cold expansion. We propose several methods for fatigue life enhancing by adding compressive residual stresses into parts.
Our products focuses on assembly fatigue and fretting improvement by hole expansion and expanded bushing installation. Our capabilities covers design (with Finite elements analysis - FEA), tests in labs and production as a EN9100 certified company.
CAPAERO also developed a patented solution for bushing in composites. The Expanded Bonded Bushing EB² significantly improves load tranfer on composite assemblies.
CAPAERO is exclusive distributor of West Coast Industries (WCI) products in Europe, Africa, Middle East, India and Russia including split sleeve tooling.
We provide engineering support and work closely to aircraft manufacturers teams to support maintenance operations and production.
Cold expansion tooling : Split sleeve, Split mandrel... We support aerospace designers in hole expansion for fatigue life enhancement. We are distributor of WCI tooling, and have a strong expertise in cold expansion processes from process simulation to training.
Expanded Bushing for fatigue life enhancement and fretting prevention in mettalic parts. We support our customers from design and simulation to manufacturing and installation in production with manual and automated process.
Innovative patented solution for Composite structural enhancement (load transfer, push out...) by expanded bonded bushing. We support our customers from simulation to bushing production and operators training.
We develop and manufacture an innovative device for Composite drilling avoiding delamination on composite. This equipment is qualified Airbus (A350 repairs) and suitable for repair and manufacturing.
We propose a complete KIT including CompDRILL, Drill unit and specific cutting tools.
