Parts Manufacturing

AIR SEPARATION MODULE CANISTER
Aeronamic’s Air Separation Module Canisters are an essential part of the onboard fuel tank inerting safety system widely used on large platforms ranging from Airbus A320, A330, A340, A350, and A400M series to regional Sukhoi and Bombardier aircraft.
Multi-axis machines with superior 7-axis capability enable us to hold extreme tight tolerances and to further reduce machining production time and cut cost to a minimum.

MACHINED CASTINGS AND HOG-OUTS
Complex precision components can be manufactured either from raw materials or castings in a very short time combining milling and turning whilst significantly improving quality.
A switch from machined casting to hog-out (C2HO) for complex aerospace components reduces cost, weight, supply chain risk and cycle time – a huge advantage in our business.

TURBINE WHEELS, ROTORS AND IMPELLERS
Annually Aeronamic produces thousands of turbine wheels, fans, impellers and high-speed turbine rotors for various applications on a wide range of aircraft systems.
Manufactured with state-of-the-art production machines these critical and complex aerospace components demonstrate high reliability at low cost.

Product Development

Aeronamic is EASA Part 21 certified. The Company is capable of designing systems to specification up to qualification and industrialization. This includes working according to the recognized ARP and DO standards for software and hardware development.

ELECTRIC STARTER GENERATOR (SGU)
Starter and generator function are combined in this system and optimized for safety and long time between overhauls (>5000hrs). Rated starter performance is 20kW/30Nm and the machine weighs approximately 7 kg. A unique safety feature is to withstand internal and external shorts without overheating. A mechanical disconnect system, which allows the machine to be put to a stand still in case of bearing failure is optional. Compared to Air Turbine Starters and DC Electrical Starters, Inverter Driven Starters can be controlled more accurately. This allows actively suppressing torsion oscillations producing smoother torque profiles.

DIGITAL ELECTRONIC CONTROL UNIT (ECU)
The digital ECU for the Electric Starter Generator integrates a control board, an inverter board and a unidirectional HVDC-LVDC converter board in one housing. The ECU is designed for starting on a bus voltage of 270VDC, but can be reconfigured to work with an 115VAC/400Hz bus.
The ECU includes a novel fault detection algorithm which instantaneously detects potential faults in the machine. Its rated performance is in starting mode 20kW/270VDC and in generator mode 12kW/28VDC. The ECU weighs approximately 14 kg.

DIGITAL MOTOR CONTROLLER (DMC)
The Aeronamic Digital Motor Controller for PM machines uses a novel sensorless control algorithm that allows full control of the machine torque even at very low speeds. The inverters are based on a robust thermal design that allows the starting power to be up to 3x higher than the rated generation power. The control software can be configured to include fault detection, which allows appropriate actions to render the PM machine safe in case of internal failure.

DC/DC CONVERTER
Aeronamic HVDC/LVDC converters deliver a regulated 28V at 300A to supply user loads. They feature resonant topology to deliver high efficiencies by means of soft-switching. Highly integrated magnetics result in low weight while meeting insulation requirements. The converters offer full protection including over current of 150% rated current.

ELECTRICALLY DRIVEN COMPRESSOR (EDC)
Aeronamic is currently developing a High-speed Electric Centrifugal Compressor for cabin pressurization, vapor cycle, fuel tank inerting and fuel cell systems. These systems are supplied with inverter, sensorless control and run on foil bearings lubricated with process gas.

TURBO COMPRESSOR (TC)
Aeronamic has developed a High-speed Turbine Driven Compressor for pressure boosting of the bleed air. Air foil bearings and an optional variable inlet guide vane system provide optimum variability of the working point within the compressor map. Emphasis is placed on low cost and high reliability, resulting in a modern scaleable unit without castings. Rated compressor power is 28kW and it weighs approximately 10kg.
