Aerospace

AIS Seward Wyon has a proven history of working on projects in the aerospace industry. We have the capability to design, manufacture and install a wide range of aerospace components that are used in a variety of applications.

These projects include the A400M combined fuel systems test rig for Airbus UK, which was designed using 3D Solid Edge software.

In addition to the design, the scope of works included fabrication, machining and on-site erection and testing of the fuel rig structure and access to support an A400M aircraft dummy wing. This enabled fuel systems testing to be carried out prior to aircraft certification and aircraft development, with the work being carried out in a hazardous area due to the presence of fuel.

The AIS Seward Wyon personnel fully adhered to Airbus regulations under the ATEX compliance guidelines.

Finally, the fully loaded test rig measuring 30 metres x 8 metres x 5 metres and containing 65 tonnes of fuel, was rotated through varying angles (-20 degrees to + 30), reproducing aircraft pitch angles.
