CAMBRIDGE SPRINGS, Pa.—Lord Corp. added fly-by-wire aftermarket repair capabilities at its Cambridge Springs facility to expand aftermarket support for long-time client Airbus.
The addition of this new repair station will ensure faster service, reducing an average return from 40 to about 15 days, according to a release.
The repair station, which is ready to operate, is equipped to handle cockpit equipment used on the Airbus fleet. Starting with three part numbers this summer, the station will expand to support more than 50 part numbers in 2019. FAA Certification is expected June 23.
The Cambridge Springs facility was ideal to meet this market need because of its history of both producing and repairing Lord electromechanical systems, according to Mike Penfield, Cambridge Springs manufacturing engineer.
Satair, a global provider of aftermarket services and solutions for the civil aerospace industry, will provide Airbus AOG support services for Lord FbW parts.
