CHANGING AEROSPACE MANUFACTURING PROCESSES DRIVES COMPLEXITY
Few industries span the manufacturing process spectrum like aerospace. Investment casting, autoclave curing, drilling and electronics assembly are just a sample of the technology’s maintenance personnel contend with every day. Process controls are growing even more complex with PLCs and proximity sensors giving way to PCs and vision systems. Staying on top of changing technologies is a challenge that affects maintenance teams in every aerospace manufacturer.
New materials and manufacturing technologies coupled with rigorous quality regimens place immense demands as well. Equipment is becoming more complex by the day, and there are fewer younger workers entering the manufacturing industry, perpetuating the continuous skills gap and related-risks to safety, productivity and the digital transformation. For consistent quality and stable output, it’s essential to have a solid aerospace industrial maintenance program. Fortunately, ATS offers aerospace industrial maintenance services that make it easy for companies interested in outsourcing their aerospace maintenance.
