Flight Hardware

Flight hardware structures are lightweight and highly reliable structures that are exposed to harsh environments. Several design iteration are often necessary to fulfill all requirements.
Thanks to the extensive experience of its engineering team, Almatech provides an integrated service that includes :

  • 3D computer-aided design of complex assembly using Catia
  • elaboration of manufacturing plan
  • selection and follow up of highly specialized and competent sub-contractors
  • product assurance activities
  • validation by numerical simulations, including quasi-static, dynamic, modal and coupled thermo-mechanical calculations using MSC.Nastran
  • integration and assembly of the different parts
  • performance of acceptance and qualification tests

Thanks to the very strong experience of its team, Almatech offers its client a high-quality and innovative service.

Almatech was selected in 2009 to complete the fabrication, assembly, and integration of the Bepi Colombo Laser Altimeter Receiver Baffle Unit (ESA program). This project includes the FEM verification of the whole structure and its validation / qualification through dynamic tests. This project will last up to mid-2010.
