Fokker Landing Gear utilizes a circle of competences for the entirety of its production process.

 

Design & development We have over 40 engineers with a vast experience in Landing Gear design and development. State-of-the-art tools for CAD and CAE are used for modeling, FEM analysis, dynamic simulation, fatigue calculations and ILS. We have a proven track record of delivering weight- and cost efficient Landing System designs, rigorously tested and proven beyond the highest FAA and EASA standards in place today.

Research & Development We are firm believers that innovation breeds success. Our sustained investments and progress in the development of various (enabling) technologies in support of Polymer Matrix Composite (PMC) application on primary and secondary Landing Gear structures are second to none.

Test & qualification We have test- and qualification facilities where technology demonstrators and preliminary- or final design prototypes are tested on our strength, fatigue, environmental and endurance test rigs. Our testing facility is completed by a drop test rig on which gears can be drop tested up to 22.5 tons with a vertical speed of up to 8 m/s.

Manufacturing & assembly Our brand new manufacturing facility is based on a 21st century factory plan and includes CNC machines for milling, turning, grinding, deep hole boring and drilling of Landing Gear components, NDT, shotpeening, and Chromium-, Nickel- and Cadmium surface treatments. We’ve gained wide experience in the application of IVD and HVOF processes in close cooperation with specialized suppliers. Our factory is completed with an extensive assembly facility.

Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Many operators around the world rely on us for Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul of their Landing Gear system. We have a fully equipped MRO shop through which we deliver World Class quality with unsurpassed Turn Around Times for Landing Gear overhauls averaging 45 – 60 days.

 (Integrated) Program Management Our Customers return to us for our ability to deliver quality products on time without exception. Our Integrated Program Teams (IPT) are geared and organized to manage the most complex requirements towards results that count; Quality, Delivery, Affordability
