The key objective in the aerospace industry is to decrease the lifetime cost of a component or system. At the same time, there is a strong demand to reduce any environmental impact. In the aerospace market, meeting both requirements can be a real challenge as they are often difficult to combine. Reducing environmental impact is related to decreasing weight in order to lessen fuel consumption while extending range and payload. However, decreasing weight increases demand on design, manufacturing processes and materials. Furthermore, the quality and safety requirements of the aerospace industry leave no room for errors. From DIAB's experience of looking at these challenges from a holistic point of view, combining design, manufacturing, and quality with the right materials can lead to improvements in all areas.
