Liebherr-Aerospace at Farnborough International Airshow 2016
July 2016 – At this year’s Farnborough International Airshow, Liebherr-Aerospace will again present its products from the areas of flight control and actuation, air management, landing gear and gearboxes, as well as its customer services. In addition, electronic components will be on display on the company’s stand B100 in hall 4.
A leading supplier of systems for the aviation industry, Liebherr-Aerospace will again welcome visitors at Farnborough International Airshow, which takes place from July 11 to 15. Highlight exhibits on the 250 m² stand include a nose landing gear housing with cadmium-free, and thus more environmentally friendly corrosion protection coating.
The company will also display a weight-optimized bell crank made by additive layer manufacturing (“3D printing”). It is the first time that Liebherr-Aerospace will present this part of a helicopter’s main rotor actuator at the trade show in England.
In addition, an animated film will give visitors fascinating insights into how the landing gear, flight controls and air management systems developed, manufactured and serviced by Liebherr-Aerospace function on board the aircraft.
