NORDAM to Supply Anchored Honeycomb Panels for Airbus A320neo Leap-1A Engine Inlets

The global renounced front-runner of aerospace manufacturing NORDAM group aligned with Airbus manufacturing forming a critical long term-contract. Having had been announced under the precedent to source Airbus with anchored honeycomb air-inlet as an input into the LEAP 1-A engine, necessary for all aircrafts in the A320neo family. NORDAM’s CEO Meredith Siegfried Madden explained how they “are delighted to partner with Airbus on the A320neo”. For both NORDAM and Airbus this agreement will be in effect early next year.

The multi-million dollar contract is another milestone in the Tulsa-based company’s strategy to grow the relationship with commercial aircraft manufacturer Airbus.

Excited about the collaborative contract Madden goes on informing the public that,

“this is third and largest Airbus structures award, which aligns perfectly with our strategic plan to grow out our commercial high-rate production work with high-end customers, and builds on our long-term relationship with Airbus”.

Up and ready for the beginning of manufacturing at NORDAM Interiors & Structures Division is the air-inlet panel, which are crafted of graphite-honeycomb composite skins, along with laminate profiles and fittings.

The complete panels are then shipped to, Nantes, France, the Airbus manufacturing facility where they will be integrated into the LEAP 1-A inlet assembly. The honeycomb mesh panel is used for the aircrafts enhancements in aerodynamics, allowing for a reduction or a creation of aerial turbulence. It also assists in creating a standard profile (speed, temperature) in a wind tunnel.  Ultimately, participating towards refining fuel efficacy. 

Presumably, this also is the first A320 composite component for NORDAM, although they have worked with Airbus on some of their other notable parts for their aircrafts.
