5 Axis Machining Center, Precision 5 Axis Machining, 2D 3D 4D 5D CNC Milling
The Łukasiewicz Research Network - Institute of Aviation conducts extensive international research cooperation with European Union countries, designs and creates innovative technological solutions: aircraft engines, aerodynamics, aviation constructions and material tests (e.g. composite materials).
When designing aircraft and its components, the Institute closely cooperates with global giants of the aviation industry, such as General Electric, Airbus or Pratt & Whitney, as well as institutions from the space industry, including the European Space Agency. The Institute's strategic research areas are aerospace, space and unmanned technologies (aircraft, helicopters, meteorological rockets, engines, accessories, propulsion). Research and services for domestic and foreign industry in the field of material and composite, incremental, remote sensing, energy and mining technologies are also carried out here. An important aspect of the business is also the intensive implementation of new fields such as: computer aided design, new materials testing techniques, adaptive systems design, micro and nanotechnology applications, the use of alternative energy sources, the use of aviation technologies in medicine and healthcare, and local air transport.
