AgustaWestland to expand its facilities in Brazil

  • 23-Aug-2013 02:13 EDT

The new AgustaWestland Do Brasil facility is designed to cope with the expected introduction of significant numbers of new AW189 and AW169 helicopters into the Brazilian market.

AgustaWestland’s Brazilian subsidiary AgustaWestland Do Brasil is undergoing a major expansion with the building of a new facility in Sao Paulo that will include maintenance hangars with space that could accommodate a helicopter final assembly line, training center, bonded warehouse, workshops, and other supporting services including a dedicated heliport. Construction of the new facility is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014. AgustaWestland Do Brasil’s new maintenance hangars will be able to accommodate helicopters up to AW101 size with maintenance bays for 10 helicopters. The training center will include space for two full flight simulators and three flight-training devices, as well as a maintenance simulator, classrooms, and briefing and debriefing rooms for pilots undergoing training.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
