REVIMA delivers first 747-400ER/F shipset
REVIMA delivered the first B747-400ER/F overhauled landing gear shipset to a North American customer. This model is the latest addition to REVIMA’s extensive repair capability for Boeing aircraft. REVIMA has experience servicing a global customer base of 747 Classic, 747-400/400F, 757-200, 777-200/300, MD11 aircraft. This first overhaul was performed in less than eight weeks and significantly benefitted from REVIMA’s comprehensive industrial capability and continuous improvement (LEAN) manufacturing transformation. In addition to the overhaul of this new model, REVIMA performed the complete maintenance on the LRUs (Steering metering valve, Nose Landing Gear Actuators, Body Steering Actuators) which are installed on this landing gear shipset.
