Albany International’s Agreement with Airbus on Wing of Tomorrow Program

December 09 2019

Albany International Corp. informed that its subsidiary, Albany Engineered Composites (AEC), has signed a two year Collaborative Research Agreement (CRA) with Airbus on the Wing of Tomorrow program to apply Albany’s 3D reinforced composites technology to next generation wing substructure applications.

Albany’s 3D composite technology, used extensively today in the CFM Leap Engine, will be adapted to the unique requirements of Airbus’s next generation airframe and production system. Albany believes its innovative resin-infused dry 3D fiber preform technology will deliver a cost-effective, out-of-autoclave wing substructure solution to Airbus that achieves superior damage tolerance and resistance to out-of-plane loads, and is more scalable to their desired production rates for next generation single aisle aircraft.
