Becoming the leader in gauging and tooling solutions for the aerospace industry: that’s Marposs’ next goal.
Expertise, knowledge and quality as a core ideology, is what Marposs can offer to aerospace companies to support their efforts to optimize manufacturing practices.
Over its 65 years history, Marposs has worked in several aerospace projects, which means many aircraft and engine manufacturers have been using Marposs’ equipment to measure the components found within their products.
Since the mid 2000’s, with the strategic acquisitions of companies - such as Kern and BPMA - Marposs has embedded into its knowledge bank many years of expertise in the design and manufacture of assembly-disassembly tooling and fixtures.
These strategic acquisitions have allowed Marposs to further help aerospace companies to reduce and control their supply chain by providing more products under one supplier. Indeed, Marposs provides:
- both design and manufacturing capabilities of assembly and disassembly tooling for gas turbine engines and components;
- inspection gauges for gears used in helicopters and aircraft components.
- hand held gauges for a more efficient way to inspect bores and surfaces while acquiring data for post inspection review.
Marposs solutions for MRO
Marposs offers a wide range of solutions in terms of MRO such as:
- turbine gas engine assembly and disassembly tooling;
- inspection and manufacturing fixtures for aircraft and engine components;
- leak test systems;
- hand-held gauges for component inspections;
- machine probing for component manufacturing;
- optical systems for shaft type part inspection.
Moreover, thanks to a global distribution network, Marposs’ teams are able to provide around the clock support to all aerospace companies.
Aerospace companies interact in a global environment. Marposs has developed a unique footprint that allows them to treat customer issues within the region in which they are found. Marposs manufacturing centers in China, France and Mexico are fully dedicated to the design and manufacture of gas turbine engine assembly and disassembly tools, manufacturing and inspection fixtures, along with distribution of gauging solutions for their respective regions.
The Distribution center in the United States is fully engaged in the sale of the aforementioned equipment for the North America Aerospace region. The main manufacturing center in Italy also contains a dedicated team that oversees the supply chain for the manufacturing centers in France, China and Mexico.
Just in time support
Since timing is everything in Aerospace programs, Marposs provides the resources, the know-how, and the expertise to help all aerospace customers introduce gauging, monitoring or tooling solutions to their operations without suffering any downtime. This can be achieved thanks to a long-standing policy based on working closely with engineering teams in order to adjust to their manufacturing schedules.
Marposs’ gauging systems are explicitly designed on ISO standards in order to create quality systems that conform and exceed those identified by the aerospace industry. From physical touch to laser vision, they provide data needed by engineers and operators to review the quality of their operations.
Marposs main purpose is to stand on the forefront of Industry 4.0 and automation to keep up with the aerospace industry’s evolution.
This transformation will require a level of accuracy that Marposs measuring precision products are capable of providing. Vertical integration is the real asset on which Marposs can built its strength as a single aerospace key partner with multiple solutions.
