Welcome to another update and example of the diverse markets and applications Bray Plastics have for their plastic fabrication and engineering skills.
Airtask are a company who provide bespoke mission-based aviation solutions to Government and commercial customers. They own and operate small twin-engined aircraft that have a unique capability of carrying various specialised cameras and survey equipment in a modified nose cone.
As with most aircraft, shape and availability of storage space as well as weight allowance is at a premium, which can sometimes be difficult to convey to users of the aircraft.
When kit and/or equipment does not fit designated stowage points, this can lead to red faces and delay.
The solution was for Bray Plastics to fabricate a duplicate section of the available nose space, including exact fixing points and cable pathways. This duplicate could be given to the customer prior to the sortie, allowing the customer to ensure their camera would fit and be secured correctly, without having to ground the aircraft during this period. This negates delays, increases customer satisfaction and leads to prime operating efficiency of the aircraft.
In the video below you can see how Bray Plastics modelled the original aircraft stowage and fabricated the duplicate stowage area from ABS.
A simple solution for a potentially expensive problem.
