Individual components for the entire Airbus family as well as for the A440M military transport aircraft and the Eurofighter are produced in Bremen. Using fully automated production facilities, Bremen also produces around 50 per cent of the thermoplastic CFRP clips for connecting CFRP fuselage shells by means of plastic frames and stringers for the long-haul A350 XWB aircraft. An annual total of over 3 million individual parts leaves the Bremen plant. Series production comprises around 30,000 different parts, in addition to the production of approx. 25,000 non-series parts. The parts manufacturing facility in Bremen is managed as part of the Varel plant.
The parts manufacturing facility in Bremen specialises in the manufacture of high-quality formed sheet-metal parts in three efficient production lines. From milling the sheet-metal parts to heat-treatment or forming of the part blanks, Bremen has a comprehensive range of machinery to draw on. A galvanised surface protection film is applied to the fabricated sheet-metal parts in automatically controlled baths. The formed sheet-metal parts are then painted using water-based paints in fully automatic paint systems. Thanks to a special speedline production line, the Bremen facility can respond to urgent customer needs within 24 hours. Another core competency at this parts manufacturing facility is the production of complex clips made of thermoplastic CFRP using fully automated production facilities. The thermoplastic processes used at Bremen enable CFRP components to be produced quickly in large quantities and with complex structures.
