Airbus selects Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg to supply A350 fleet

Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH reached a new important milestone: Airbus has selected the OEM to supply the lower cargo door actuator and valve for the A350. The complex valve will be produced by Liebherr using 3D printing technology.

Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg, Liebherr’s center of competence for flight control systems, landing gears, gears, gearboxes as well as electronics, is collaborating intensively with Airbus in the development of additive layer manufactured components. At the beginning of 2019, Liebherr-Aerospace started the serial production of 3D printed parts. The company had successfully certified and delivered a printed proximity sensor bracket for the A350 nose landing gear.

This bracket was the first-ever introduced Airbus system part to be qualified for titanium
additive layer manufacturing. Now, Airbus and Liebherr are launching a more complex component – the valve of the lower cargo door actuator system – for the same aircraft.
Liebherr-Aerospace is on board of all Airbus commercial aircraft programs, and this contract is another demonstration of the trust between the two companies and their mutual commitment to introduce cutting edge innovation.
