Liebherr-Aerospace delivers 5,000th heat exchanger unit

Only 30 months after Liebherr-Aerospace entered the Heat Exchanger maintenance market in 2016 with the opening of a dedicated Center of Excellence in Saline, Michigan (USA), the company was able to celebrate the delivery of its 5,000th heat exchanger unit. A milestone that attests the success of this repair activity.

With the decision to establish capabilities on this Liebherr product line of heat transfer components and to create a global center of excellence for aftermarket support, Liebherr-Aerospace excels on the cleaning, repair and re-core of heat exchangers. Repairs activity, which had previously been performed by various third parties, is migrating back into the Liebherr aftermarket network and is being received from a diverse customer base throughout the European, Asian, Middle East and Americas regions.

With initial capabilities on the Airbus A320 family, Bombardier CRJ family and the A380, the heat exchanger staff are working diligently to add capabilities for other Liebherr equipment installed on the Airbus A330 family, Airbus A220, Boeing 747-8, and Falcon 7X business jet.

By utilizing OEM parts and procedures, non-contact metrology, custom built cleaning and non-destructive testing setups, wire-EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) cutting, adapted fixturing, and exploring more time savings techniques such as CMT (Cold Metal Transfer) robotic welding, Liebherr-Aerospace is continuing to be more efficient while maintaining superior OEM quality.
