Aciturri becomes the established sole supplier of the VTP Dorsal Fin for the A320 family (A319/A320/321).
In 2016, Aciturri’s team at the plant in Tres Cantos started to work on the production process of this component by redefining and improving the tooling to be used during manufacturing processes.
The first few parts were manufactured at the mentioned plant in February, following validation of the industrialization process and successful tests required to check the component’s perfect integration with the VTP (Vertical Tail Plane).
Since then and until July, the manufacturing rate maintained between 25 and 45 aircraft a month. This will be increased steadily until the goal of 60 units a month is reached in January 2018.
Aciturri’s engineering and production teams have verified the plant’s capacity at Tres Cantos to ensure the delivery objective. Their current work focuses on stabilizing the load and standardizing all processes, which will allow the implementation of improvement plans aimed at offering solutions that match the highest quality standards and competitiveness.
