Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Aerospace report

 

 

 

We are happy to be working with Global Business Reports to produce the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Aerospace report!

Combining the Cluster’s aerospace network and the access Global Business Reports has to the international executives, makes this report a key way to communicate the know-how the region presents to a global audience in time for the growth period. For each of us GBR offers an effective means to secure the best visibility to connect with global decision-makers and support the initiative of this report.


Industry 4.0: Can Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes keep up?

So far, companies within the region are generally making positive steps towards incorporating Industry 4.0. The facilitators of this progress are primarily located within the region itself: a thriving market has emerged of companies geared towards assisting other SMEs to incorporate Industry 4.0 in an affordable and sustainable manner.
Companies such as Inoprod have identified the specific needs of the SMEs in the region and developed ways of applying their technology to SME operations … “In just a few minutes, we are able to simulate several months of production and thus predict how the plant will be operating and what its future performance will be.”

Jocelyn Lardet – INDUSTRIAL DIRECTOR, JET CUT

The main benefit is the reduction of material waste which occurs because our technology is able to cut materials of any shape and thickness using nesting optimisation. An additional benefit is to avoid causing any damage where the cut is made. We do not change the structure of the material that we use, whereas techniques like laser or plasma cutting drastically alter the properties of the material at the place of the incision. »

Eric Pisani – CEO, SINTEX NP

We are working towards becoming a global player in the aeronautics supply chain through our technical expertise in the processing of thermoplastic composites and our high investment in innovation. »

Patrick Besnier – PRESIDENT, DBC

The pressure to bring our prices down presents us with a challenge, but one that drives us to improve our operations year on year. We focus on having first-class production quality, because we actually find that our customers are willing to pay a little more for our products. »

Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes is Developing as a Hub for Electronics for the Aerospace Industry

The region has the potential to excel in the aircraft electronics market because of its easy access to research and development facilities and its wealth and breadth of companies experienced in the electronic component field …
With companies in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes at all stages of the value chain, from industry leaders such
as Michelin, working in partnership with Safran, to more niche SMEs, developing the electronic components of tomorrow’s aircrafts, it is safe to say that the region has earned its reputation as a hub for innovation.

Manuel Collet – VP PROSPECTION AND DEVELOPMENT, INGÉNIERIE @ LYON

The internet of things, in terms of aeronautics, remains a broad field to be explored and developed. Whereas in the past we would build patches to be connected to existing systems, now we need to integrate those systems directly into the materials we are using. We are working towards a method where the intelligence is all built directly into the systems themselves. »

Nicolas Chantier – MARKETING MANAGER, TELEDYNE e2v

Teledyne-e2v recognizes the importance of mastering supply chain and manufacturing when it comes to serving demanding professional markets with the latest technologies. As such, the manufacturing capability out of Grenoble is a perfect fit. »

We are focusing on developing composite solutions which are more complete, so that we can replace several metallic parts with one composite part, which saves on production costs as well as weight within the aircraft. »

 

Pascal DubUis – CEO, INOPROD

The capabilities of our simulation software are very advanced. Thanks to the expertise of our engineering  team, we are able to represent the flows of materials and pieces, in 2D & 3D, and build all the KPIs needed for decision making. In just a few minutes, we are able to simulate several months of production

 

Xavier Benoit – VP – CENTUM ADENEO

“Electronics are the way forward! Centum Adeneo is an emerging player in the industry, with some very unique capabilities, not just from a technical standpoint but also in terms of our business model and presence.“ … We are optimistic about potential opportunities that will be created by Airbus and Boeing’s

 

Karim Chibane – TRANSFER TECHNOLOGY DIRECTOR, ESISAR GRENOBLE INP

The contributions that our students will make to their employers are significant, because we have already bridged the gap between the high level of theoretical knowledge that students have after graduation, and the industrial experience that they need to succeed and excel in the workplace. »

 

Michael Niemaz – KEY ACCOUNT MANAGER AEROSPACE, MDP- MAXON MOTOR FRANCE

We are currently recruiting to grow our engineering department in order to increase our capacity to develop customized system solutions for the aerospace industry. There is an increasing demand for our services, and we want to be ready to meet it. »
