Ankara, Turkey – Turkish Aerospace Industry (TUSAŞ) and Boeing signed a cooperation agreement to develop thermoplastic parts production capability in accordance with aviation standards in Turkey.
According to a written statement from TUSAŞ, TUSAŞ has made a new investment in the design and production of thermoplastic composite parts that contain high-capacity rapid production technology and will be included in future aircraft with the technical support and experience gained from its cooperation with Boeing.
High-quality thermoplastic composite parts, which will be produced with a high-efficiency economic and fast thermoplastic project, are expected to reduce the cost in the product cycle and process areas by 30 percent compared to conventional composites.
In addition to being a high-capacity, high-quality and fast production technology facility with fully automated machines, TUSAŞ has gained the ability to produce thermoplastic composites. The facility, which will allow technical personnel to train in this field, will produce world-class thermoplastic composite parts with domestic and national facilities.
Thermoplastic composites to be produced in high quality will be candidates for the production of parts in various sizes and geometries for use in the aerospace industry, especially TUSAŞ original products.
Temel Kotil, General Manager of TUSAŞ, stated that they will continue to direct new production technologies to the aviation sector with such important collaborations, “as a company that directs the most important projects of our country, we will reduce the cost to a significant extent by realizing high quality production and making our thermoplastic investments. the phrase ” used.
Boeing Turkey director Ayşem Sargın said: “the agreement has added a new dimension to the long-standing partnership of both Boeing and TUSAŞ. Such projects, which make a deep-rooted contribution to the development of Turkish aviation, are also an indication of our trust in Turkey, which we consider an important technology partner, and our commitment to permanent cooperation.”
