AIRBUS and its whole supply chain have been faced with significant challenges over the past few years, from major restructuring to a worldwide pandemic whilst still maintaining an exceptional backlog to be delivered across the next 10 years. The objective is to deliver all these aircraft, On time, On cost and On quality. This represents an industrial, commercial and technical challenge for the global supply chain and requires Airbus to foster its detail parts business around key strategic suppliers. Beyond the industrial excellence which is expected from all our suppliers, some differentiating factors are also critical when selecting Airbus “D2P” strategic partners: globalization, innovation capacity, value creation, sustainable operational and environmental performance and continuous improvement. The presentation aims at presenting the AIRBUS Detail Parts development over the past few years, reviewing its sourcing strategy and its implementation using the D2P processes and what the future strategy looks like for detail parts.

    Room 2
Read more
Bmax is the leading provider of Magnetic Pulse systems & solutions for Sheet metal processing, occupying a large facility in Toulouse, France. Our technology is based on the high concentration of electrical energy used to manipulate metal at extremely high deformation speeds. While off-the-shelf simulation software covers many engineering domains, it simply isn’t designed to describe metal’s behaviour in the extreme deformation rates attained by Bmax systems. Gilles Mazars, Head of Simulation will present Bmax's simulation capabilities through a Case Study related to the forming of a Helicopter Engine Complex Part. Then Mathieu Fournier, Aerospace Sales Manager will highlight the benefits of Simulation & Magnetic Pulse Forming process and present how Bmax can help your business grow.

    Hybridization of Future Aircraft
    Room 2
Read more
Current flying aircrafts are often exposed to criticism in terms of CO2, NOISE and NOx emissions. ACARE Objective require strong reduction of these parameters by 2050. Deep actions were defined to reduce fuel consumption to reach this target: SAFRAN “LEAP” Engine and PRATT & WHITNEY “PW1100G” Engine on SMR (Short Medium Range) aircraft’s but we are not yet close enough from the ACARE objective. Several actions were already implemented to reduce these emissions which led to More Electrical Aircraft: some good examples will be presented during the session. However, even with the new fuel named SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel) it was considered the need go further and to explore the “HYBRIDIZATION of FUTURE AIRCRAFT”. Electrical power could be a way to reach the ACARE objective in a reasonable time: around 2035 for Short Medium Range aircrafts. It could lead to Full Electrical Aircraft or Hybridized Aircraft depending on the Range. The purpose of this presentation is to make a synthesis of what existing to date, what is currently in study and where are the ways of investigation which are promising for the future. Attendees will understand the difficulties to reach the ACARE target, because aircraft or engine manufacturers are not only decision makers in the final result.

The panel deals with how aerospace industries could benefit from AI (Artificial Intelligence) to contribute to SDG (Sustainable Development Goals). We will cover topics such as leveraging AI to extract information from satellites to monitor Earth and provide insights to efficiently act. In a second part, we will discuss how AI can contribute to more sustainable aviation reducing environmental footprint. In a third part, we will see whether we can leverage what we do with AI in aerospace to other sectors such as Healthcare. Finally, we will also investigate how we push towards doing AI in a more sustainable way exploring more frugal approaches limiting our impact.

Over the past 2 years the various actors of our industry and especially LATECOERE have been copying with unprecedented struggles. It has been necessary to engage difficult social and industrial crisis measures, so to limit our losses which beside remained extremely impacting. Meanwhile LATECOERE has prepared an ambitious strategy so to exit from the crisis The group is successfully deploying it as we speak. The Group and its Supply Chain are now facing business opportunities which we have been expecting so to grow our business again, and restore our profitability. However, this growth will benefit to all of us solely while meeting two essential challenges: the industrial performance and the competitiveness. The industrial performance because we are all well aware that managing a volume ramp-up is at least as complex as managing a slow-down. Tier 1 and tiers 2 need to prepare the industrial capacities of the plants. It also requires a strong collective agility so to adapt to the customer demand variations. Competitiveness, because business opportunities will benefit to the most competitive companies on the market place. These 2 challenges shall be completed together.
