LASELEC CELEBRATES 15 YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH ELECTRICAL HARNESS AUTOMATION AT NBAA 2016

PRESS RELEASE - 17-oct.-2016 18:06:52
  Press release October 2016   LASELEC CELEBRATES 15 YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH ELECTRICAL HARNESS AUTOMATION AT NBAA 2016 Founded in 2001, LASELEC designs and manufactures cutting-edge electrical wire processing equipment: UV laser wire markers, laser wire strippers, interactive harness assembly boards, harness braiding machines. This wide range of products demonstrates the company’s willingness for continuous innovation and leadership in the latest trends in aircraft electrical harness manufacturing – And that latest trend is AUTOMATION ! LASELEC will present its automatic solutions in a special presentation at the NBAA 2016 show:   The RAPIDSHARE Automated Wire Processing Line Prior to RapidShare being launched, the first step in the manufacturing process of an aerospace electrical harness started with the marking and cutting of wires. Next the operator had to manually group the batch of wires. Then the operator would label and sort those batches for production processing before sending them to the shop floor for assembly on a form board. Laselec has initiated the new trend in the harness manufacturing with GE Aviation being the first customer to experience an unprecedented level of automation. RapidShare is a solution designed to automate wire processing production.   The RapidShare robot arm, attached to the ULYS Modena laser wire marker, is able to perform automatic tasks such as:   labelling, stripping, crimping, bundling and kitting processes.   The operator is now free to handle multiple tasks/machines instead of operating a single marking machine for an entire shift. RapidShare’s compatibility with the ULYS Modena line of laser wire markers has allowed companies, such as Airbus Group which owns several Laselec’s markers, to   upgrade to the automated production system that has increased their competitiveness. Also on display during NBAA 2016, is the ALL NEW Sylade 7 laser wire stripper . The Laselec patented laser cutting technology is a safe solution for jacket stripping of MIL-SPEC cables. This all new version features a trigger sensor, auto-select strip lengths and a faster cutting process. With SYLADE, jacket stripping becomes SAFE, QUICK and FUN! The EasyWiring interactive harness form board will be on display at NBAA 2016 as well.   This digital wiring harness board replaces the traditional wooden boards. The embedded software provides a step by step guided assembly processes to increase manufacturing productivity and reduce cabling errors. In addition to Rapidshare, LASELEC has also launched its new over-braiding machine. The BRAIDO series provides complete automation for the production of overbraiding. The software, developed by LASELEC, offers many functions allowing a significant increase in productivity. BRAIDO customers especially appreciate the simplicity of the braiding operation as well as the machine’s impressive speed and low noise reduction. By networking different BRAIDO machines the operator can begin the work on one machine and transfer the job to another machine and still maintain the continuity of the traceability data.

PRESS: Dassault Falcon Jet to Expand Little Rock Completion Facility

Dassault Falcon - 30-mai-2013 22:09:53
​May 29, 2013 (Little Rock, Arkansas) : Dassault Falcon Jet plans to increase the size of its completion center in Little Rock, Arkansas to accommodate future Falcons, it was announced today at a press conference attended by Governor Mike Beebe of Arkansas, Senators Boozman and Pryor, Representative Griffin, Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola and executives from Dassault Falcon Jet. Over the next three years, the company will invest $60 million in new construction and the refurbishment of existing facilities. “Little Rock has been a major part of our company identity over the last 38 years and today is the company’s largest industrial facility,” said Eric Trappier, Chairman & CEO of Dassault Aviation. “It has become our worldwide center of excellence for primary completion activities and pioneered the use of digital design in cabin completion. The new investment will not only increase capacity but enhance the overall quality and efficiency of the products we provide to our customers.” “I like to say that a piece of Little Rock is always flying somewhere in the world because of the craftsmanship, ingenuity and dedication of our employees here,” said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon Jet.  “I am glad that the Dassault Aviation Board of Directors gave the green light for this major expansion and want to thank Governor Beebe, the Little Rock Airport Commission and the Arkansas Economic Development Commission for a productive exchange that ultimately led to a win-win agreement for Dassault Falcon Jet and the State of Arkansas.” For more information, please read the full article here and follow us @UBIaero and on our Facebook page .

PRESS: Cessna Skylane with Diesel Engine Near Certification

PRESS - 16-janv.-2013 17:54:42
  Cessna Aircraft is nearing certification of its four-seat 182 JT-A Skylane equipped with a diesel engine, which is designed to burn jet fuel. With an uncertain future for low-lead aviation gasoline worldwide, Cessna officials said the 182 JT-A – with its 230-horsepower engine – is poised to be an industry game-changer. Outside the United States, 100 low-lead aviation gasoline, or avgas, is much more costly than jet fuel and more difficult to find. Inside the U.S., the costs are about the same and avgas is more readily available — at least for now. A push is on to find a replacement for leaded aviation gasoline. Cessna introduced the model in July. Eventually, Cessna will replace the T182Ts now coming down the production line at its Independence plant with the 182 JT-A. The diesel engine, made by French engine-maker SMA, a division of Safran, is quieter and flies more smoothly in flight than the engine it replaces. “And it uses significantly less fuel,” Brian Cozine, an engineer specialist in advanced design at Cessna, said at a briefing at Cessna’s flight operations building in west Wichita. The $515,000 Cessna 182 JT-A model routinely burns 30 to 40 percent less fuel than comparable avgas engines on the same mission, Cozine said. It also will fly farther — so far, in fact, that pilots will need a rest stop before they need to stop for fuel. “Half tanks will take you almost as far as full gas tanks (in the other models),” Cozine said. At normal cruise, it can burn 11 gallons an hour and fly nonstop for more than seven hours. At a low power setting, it can stay in the air 14 to 16 hours. Although the plane has a diesel engine, it’s not certified to run on diesel fuel, which turns to gel at cold temperatures. The 182 JT-A has been tested in temperatures ranging from minus 40 degrees to 108 degrees. Besides Jet A fuel, it will be able to operate on Russia’s TS1 fuel, China’s No. 3 Jet Fuel and JP-8 jet military fuel. The single-engine plane has been well received worldwide, said Jeff Umscheid, business leader for single-engine aircraft at Cessna. Plus, “it’s doing a lot better in the United States domestically than expected,” Umscheid said. Buyers like the fuel savings, lower operating costs and that it’s environmentally friendly, he said. The diesel engine increases the time for an engine overhaul by 25 percent over the previous engine, Umscheid said. Cessna is scheduled for Federal Aviation Administration certification by the end of March, with first delivery in the second quarter followed by certification from European authorities in the third quarter. Flying the new 182 is easier than flying similar airplanes, Cessna officials said. The work load is significantly reduced, said Cessna test pilot Charles Wilcox. “It’s a very carefree operation,” Wilcox said. “Basically, you set the power, and you forget it.” Wilcox demonstrated the ease of operation Monday afternoon. To start, the plane cranked over like a car. There’s no worry about magneto checks, carburetor heat, mixture settings, propeller control, exhaust gas or carbon monoxide emissions. A single black throttle controls the power, and a computer keeps track of pressures and temperatures. “The computer does the work and gives the engines the proper amount of fuel,” Cozine said. If the electrical system should fail, the plane will still fly. Pilots can switch to a mechanical mode, which allows them to meter the fuel to the engine like other models. If the engine quits in mid-flight, say because a pilot failed to switch to the other fuel tank, the plane is easy to restart. Wilcox demonstrated the ability in mid-flight, by shutting down the engine, then adding power. The plane immediately came back to life. That’s something the FAA looks at in certifying airplanes, he said. So what’s next? “We will be pursuing global fuels in other models,” Cozine said. If there is an appropriate engine for the 162 Skycatcher, 172 Skyhawk or 206 Stationair, Cessna will take a look. “We would certainly pursue it when the engines become available,” Cozine said. That’s a few years away. http://www.kansas.com/2013/01/15/2637416/cessna-skylane-with-diesel-engine.html   Read more here: http://www.kansas.com/2013/01/15/2637416/cessna-skylane-with-diesel-engine.html#storylink=cpy  

PRESS RELEASE: Dassault Introduces the Falcon 2000LXS

Dassault Falcon - 29-oct.-2012 19:07:28
(Orlando, Florida, October 29, 2012)   – Dassault Falcon today launched the Falcon 2000LXS offering improved airport performance, payload and cabin comfort compared to the Falcon 2000LX which it will replace in 2014. The 4,000 nm Falcon 2000LXS will allow operators to access more airports because of new full-length inboard slats which give the aircraft category-leading airport performance and balanced field length. “Customers are demanding more of their business jet and that’s what Dassault is delivering in the Falcon 2000LXS.  Like all Falcons, the 2000LXS will offer the best fuel economy and the lowest operating costs in its category,” said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon.  “But, what also needs to be recognized is the continuous evolution and robustness of the Falcon 2000 platform which has set the highest of standards for comfort, reliability and efficiency in business aviation.” With full fuel, the Falcon 2000LXS will have a payload of 2,190 pounds; a maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) of 42,800 lbs with a balanced field length of 4,675 feet, which is over 1,000 feet better than some aircraft in its category. At M.80, the Falcon 2000LXS will offer a range of 4,000 nm (standard aircraft, full fuel, 6 pax, NBAA IFR reserves, 85% Boeing Annual Winds).  It will climb directly to 41,000 feet in 19 minutes, reach a mid-cruise altitude of 45,000 feet and have a certified ceiling of 47,000 feet.  With a typical end-of-flight profile, the Falcon 2000LXS will need just 2,260 feet of runway, no longer than that needed for a turboprop aircraft.

PRESS: Island Air to Double Hawaii Interisland Turboprop Fleet

Pacific Business News - 25-sept.-2012 17:53:54
  Island Air   launched a new look and logo Thursday as part of the Hawaii airline’s new business plan, which includes replacing and doubling the number of turboprop aircraft in its interisland fleet from four to eight by the end of next year. Honolulu-based Island Air next month will acquire two ATR72 turboprop aircraft seating 64 passengers each, which will replace two aging Dash 8 aircraft, the company said. The company plans to acquire five 42-passenger ATR42 turboprop aircraft next year, which would replace Island Air’s two other current aircraft and would like to add another ATR72 to bring the fleet to eight by the end of 2013, CEO   Lesley Kaneshiro  said. Island Air will also likely add new routes once it acquires the additional aircraft, she said. “We will connect more destinations within the state of Hawaii as we grow our aircraft fleet,” she said. Island Air may also consider reinstating routes, such as the Maui-Hilo route, she said. “I think we’re looking at the demand in the marketplace and we’ll add a new route when we feel that the demand in the market can support the route,” she said. Island Air currently flies from its Honolulu hub to Hoolehua Airport on Molokai, Lanai City on Lanai, Kahului and Kapalua aiports on Maui, Kona International Airport on the Big Island and Lihue Airport on Kauai. The airline also operates flights between Lihue and Kahului; Hoolehua and Lanai City, Kapalua and Kahului; and Kahului and Kona. On Tuesday, Hawaiian Airlines, the largest interisland airline in the state,   said it is purchasing two turboprop aircraft   and plans to create a subsidiary to operate service to Hawaii’s smaller airports, including Lanai, Molokai and Kapalua. Officials with Hawaiian, a subsidiary of Hawaiian Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: HA), offered no timetable for the new subsidiary. Click here   for more information on Island Air’s rebranding
