metal parts for the Airbus A320 family of aircraft. The generic facility is a state of the art
aerospace manufacturing shop, it supports technologies like fluid cell forming,
extrusion stretch wrapping, solution annealing and long bed high speed
machining of intricate parts. It also has provisions for assembly but has been
built with a primary purpose of meeting the demand arising from the RUAG – TAL
facility can supply, manufacture and assemble more than 50,000 precision parts
every month. Alfons Kaspar, Vice
President Supply Chain and Logistics – RUAG Aero-structures, said, “We
treat the inauguration of this new facility as the first step in our realisation
of making TAL a part of our strategic supply base. Our challenge is to help TAL
ramp-up quickly and stabilize production, so that we can look beyond parts and
sub-assemblies into larger and complex assemblies. We are also looking at
exploiting the potential and capabilities that TAL has built up in composites,
which will complement our offerings and give us an unbeatable value proposition
across metallic and composite aero structures”.
