Zodiac Aerospace is a global market leader in cabin interiors for the aerospace industry. RO-RA Aviation Systems has been selected for the development of a key design feature for a new cabin interior of Bombardier Commercial Jets.
The project is focused on combining plastic with metal precision parts and metallic paintwork to create latching system for overhead compartments. This is a new project for RO-RA which will cement its position as a specialist in functional cabin components.
“We are responsible for the detailed design engineering, development, production and of course for qualification,” says enthusiastic RO-RA Managing Director Helmut Wiesenberger with regards to the cooperation with the long term customer.
The latching system for the overhead compartment will be designed for a life cycle of more than 120,000 open/close cycles under various static and dynamic loads including changing environmental conditions and the spraying of insecticides. The comprehensive test procedures leading up to approval and beyond will be performed in part by RO-RA Aviation Systems in Schörfling, in collaboration with the Johannes Kepler University of Linz and technical colleges in Wels and Steyr.
