Pratt & Whitney / Air New Zealand Engineering Centre
In the late 90s, Pratt & Whitney and the Air New Zealand Engineering Centre needed a range of jigs and fixtures for the V2500 engine project. In an incredibly safety conscious industry, change is not readily grasped and we were confined by the exact specifications (including materials) from drawings completed in the US almost a decade prior to the project. Many of the materials were difficult to source, while others were no longer available.
This was our first experience in the aeronautical market and we approached the project as we would any other – attempting to find the most innovative, quality solution for our clients. Where materials weren’t available, we sourced superior materials, and completed the range of components to the specifications needed.
This technically challenging project was completed on time and on budget.
