Two simultaneous workshops in the 09:00-09:30 session

ALLIANCE – 3D printing and Waste Free Society
Presentation available soon
Mr. Jean-Claude BIHR, CEO, Alliance

Powder Injecting Molding (PIM) is a net shape or near net shape direct manufacturing process that combines powders metallurgy and shaping by plastic injection. This innovating technology enables to shape micromechanical parts in large quantities with very complex alloys (nickel base and others), with the guarantee of a very higher material and energy efficiency, compared with other technologies. Associated with the Lean, it is the assurance of a manufacturing that minimizes the wastes, thus with optimal global costs.


Operation Technology Convergence for Today and Tomorrow
Presentation available
Mr. Martin KELMAN, Senior MES Consultant, ATS International

Current industry trends for more integrated manufacturing systems have driven the need for the two worlds of Information Technology and Operation Technology to converge. The manufacturing domain now includes application and interfaces like PLM for manufacturing, ERP, MES, EMI and a myriad of shop floor systems. ATS has used the principles of manufacturing 2.0 to define and deploy a manufacturing service bus that meets the challenges of IT security and policies and delivers a configurable, flexible solution for the aerospace industry. With one eye on the future, the manufacturing service bus is also complementary to the ideas of the internet of things and industry 4.0. Are these ideas games changers, or can we build on existing knowledge?

ECA Group - How to optimize aircraft testing time and cost using innovative technology?
Presentation available soon
Mr. Jérôme VIAGAS, Sales and Marketing Director, ECA Sinters

The aerospace industry faces great challenges to reduce aircraft testing time and cost. ECA Group T-Cell technology is used to develop complete electronic functional testing systems for the aerospace industry. T-Cells are interchangeable and compact modules used to design multifunction testing systems. T-Cell Testing systems are composed of compact and mobile cabinets that can easily be moved around the aircraft.
This technology offers:
• Great flexibility as they can be used in fixed or mobile configurations.
• Better use of working space in a confined environment supporting coactivity during manufacturing process and improving health and safety for ground personnel.
• Easy maintainability as T-Cells are self-maintainable. T-cells are rugged hot-plug modules that can be replaced in less than one minute. T-Cells also guarantee over 98% product availability.
• Easier testability enabled by embedded testability functions with a dedicated HMI
• A system adapted to the aerospace environment benefitting from ECA experience with the main manufacturers of the aerospace industry
• Obsolescence management by mastering critical component usage and software upgrades.
ECA Group can also offer a complete range of innovative testing tools. In particular, we use T-Cells to build easy-to-use portable GSE testing tools. T-Cells can be used in mobile and battery-powered GSE testing tools as they are compact modules and have a low electrical consumption

AIRBUS CIMPA - Knowledge Management: how to secure your knowledge assets
Presentation available soon
Mr. Damien MANTOULAN, Knowledge Management team leader, CIMPA

In order to maintain their competitive edge companies have to consider the most appropriate ways to manage their knowledge. There are, nevertheless, several factors that can endanger their “knowledge assets”: an aging workforce, poaching of key resources, high turnover, to name but a few. Whilst governments and organisations are actively promoting the need to better manage knowledge (like the “contrat de génération” in France for example), capturing, sharing and re-use of knowledge remains a significant challenge. How can we secure our knowledge assets? How can we effectively capitalise on our experts’ knowledge? How can our workforce effectively share their knowledge amongst each other? Our presentation will try to address those points.

Two simultaneous workshops in the 10:45-11:15 session
NB: The workshop "Funding for the French aerospace industry" ends at 11:50

ZODIAC AERO DUCT SYSTEMS - Metallic Bellows and Ball Joints characterization. 
Mr. Jean-François ROCHE , Technical Director, Zodiac Aero Duct Systems
Mr. Emmanuel OMONT , Director of Operations, Zodiac Aero Duct Systems

Used in pneumatic (high pressure, high temperature), the bellows act as thermal and dynamic stress decoupling. They are the seat of high thermo-mechanical stresses and therefore shall be subjected to particular care in term of definition and forming process. ZODIAC AERO DUCT SYSTEMS has developed specific savoir-faire / know-how regarding application of numerical simulation as forecast of forming process (hydro forming specific application). This knowledge includes non-linearity characterization involving high deformation, nonlinear material and contact friction. ZODIAC AERO DUCT SYSTEMS has also established a data base in term of fatigue life (Wohler approach) and dynamic. Higher reliability and 50% increased MTBF are resulting for the latest bellows generation used in pneumatic systems. The last studies consider the new metallic alloys (new Titanium base and austenitic alloys) and conduct not only to an improvement of dynamic resistance of the bellows also to a significant weight savings : 30% for the last development.

Presentation available soon
Mr. Jean-Luc MATE, Vice President Strategy and Business Developpement, Continental Engineering Services
Mr. Eric LE BOZEC, Operation Director, Actia
Mr. Olivier DUCHMANN, Chief Development & Strategy Officer, Serma Group

Automotive electronics has been during the last 40 years developed taking into account strong competitiveness demand while constanly improving quality, reliability and ,overall robustness. The “zero default” and " 0 repair " requirements of this industry has been driving factors to develop new processes in design for manufacturing. To maintain this eco- system in Western Europe Automotive suppliers create high tech best cost flexible Factories capable to produce large amount of products variants with single digit PPM at competive prices. Avionics is facing now with rising volumes worldwide and new comers strong competitiveness demands from their airlines customers. Very few automotive electronic equipments makers open their facility to non automotive industry with dedicated EMS offers. That’s the case for Actia and Continental Automotive in Toulouse Midi Pyrénées.
The aim of this round table will be to describe how Automotive Electronics suppliers installed in Toulouse can contribute to accompany all European Aeronautic equipment makers to disruptive challenges in OTD, OQD and best price delivery.

The supplier-customer relationship in aerospace, or what an OEM is expecting from its suppliers.
Presentation available soon
Mr Louis BOUCHARD, Procurement Manager - Bombardier Business Aircraft

The aerospace industry is in constant evolution and is more competitive than ever. Not only are we witnessing the emergence of new players, but our customers' needs are also evolving more rapidly. Most of the aerospace OEMs have significantly modified their manufacturing and sourcing strategies to be able to face these new challenges. Suppliers, today, play a far greater role in OEMs' product development and new programs' overall success. This greater interdependence between OEMs and suppliers has made the supplier selection process even more critical. This presentation aims at highlighting Bombardier's expectations towards its suppliers and explaining how this new manufacturing model can help increasing both parties' competitiveness and success.
