Boeing has certified Sofitec´s quality system as a supplier for new manufacturing processes, as well as the Sol-Gel application process (anticorrosive protection), which will be part of the ongoing programs with the American Aerospace OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
The new treatments, which affect almost all our activity sections (machining, sheet metal, composites, surface treatments, inspections, painting, and assembly), will be developed in the coming months in our existing facilities and will be transferred to those under construction in the first half of 2019.
Thus, our quality department, in collaboration with some areas of Sofitec, is managing the certification of various aerostructures manufacturing processes such as boric-sulfuric anodizing, heat treatment of aluminum alloys, hardness and conductivity tests; as well as the realization of analytical and process controls in our internal laboratory.
These technologies, together with others that will be incorporated into the new facilities, will allow us to diversify and increase Sofitec's technical capabilities portfolio, as well as offer a greater capacity available to current and future customers.
You can consult in detail these and other certified processes by the OEMs for which we work in Sofitec in the Documents area of our website.
