Commercial Aircraft Components
Our first commercial aircraft product was the YS-11, the first Japanese commercial aircraft built after the end of WWII. Using our experience of this product, we participated in several programs of commercial aircraft such as the Boeing 767, the Gulfstream III. Especially, with its capability of designing and fabricating high-quality "strong" and "light-weight" composite structures, ShinMaywa enjoys a high confidence from major aircraft manufacturers.
With these peerless technologies, we are currently providing a wide variety of several aircraft components for ones; such as, of The Boeing Company and Airbus for wide body aircraft, of Embraer for regional jet, and of Gulfstream and Bombardier for business jet.
With our motto, “Fulfilling our social responsibility through the provision of superior products and services and the maintenance and improvement of the quality of our management”, we will provide competitive products. Enhancing performances of quality, deliveries and costs in commercial aircraft businesses, we continue to be committed to manufacturing products that meet the expectations of our customers, continuing to develop original technology and playing a key role in the aircraft industry.
Main Wing Spar for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner
We participated in the project to develop and produce Main Wing Spar for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner with the assistance of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI). This component mainly uses composite materials that chiefly combine carbon fiber and glass fiber with epoxy resin, and ShinMaywa’s sophisticated processing technology is highly acclaimed.
Our performance of quality, on-time deliveries, costs, etc. is significantly satisfied. We consecutively won the “Boeing Supplier of the Year Award” in the “Major Structures” category in 2013 and 2014. ※1 The "Boeing Supplier of the Year" is greatly a prestigious award presented to suppliers recognized by The Boeing Company for exceptional and extraordinary performance in quality, on-time delivery, price, etc. from among 13,000 suppliers around the world.
To promote and raise awareness, publicity of and interest in aircraft industries and cultivate and foster the human resources who will support the future generation, we are one of the sponsor companies of the “Flight of Dreams” theme park inaugurated in Chubu Centrair International Airport.
Wing-To-Body Fairing for the Boeing 777X
Wing-To-Body Fairing which cover the joint between the wing and the fuselage are now used in every one of 777 flying the skies all around the world. With this achievement, we are selected to as Tier 1 supplier of 777X program which is the first time in the Boeing program.
To meet the expectation, we established new Harima Plant in Ono city, Japan. We manufacture each parts separately such as; the metal parts in Harima Plant, the composite parts in Konan Plan (Kobe city, Japan) and final assembly in Takarazuka Plant (Takarazuka city, Japan) in order to progress the high quality, productivity and production capacity.
From 2014 we have participated the joint development and production project for the new designed Wing-To-Body-Fairing as a Tier 1 supplier. This component primarily uses a composite material that combines carbon fiber and glass fiber with epoxy resin, and ShinMaywa’s technology related to the composite materials has been given high evaluations by its customers.
We could successfully achieve the delivery of our 1st Wing-to-Body Fairing in April 2018 and have been manufacturing and supplying to Boeing.
Fillet Fairing for the Airbus A380
In October 2002, we participated in the Airbus A380 superjumbo aircraft development program to start the development and production of Fillet Fairing, which covers for the portion between the main wing leading edge and the fuselage, as well as Ramp Surface Panel, which covers for the main wing leading edge.
With the enthusiastic response to both of these products, in 2004 we were invited to join a program to produce the A330 and 340, and delivered Fillet Fairing for those models.
Fillet Fairing for the Airbus A330neo
Fillet Fairing, which covers for the portion between the main wing leading edge and the fuselage, has also been manufactured and supplied to Airbus as a Tier 1 supplier. Since early 21st century, ShinMaywa has also been supplying these fairings for the A330ceo and the A380 aircraft. With the enthusiastic response to these products, in 2015, we were invited to join the program to develop and produce Fillet Fairing for A330neo, and we are delivering Fillet Fairing for those models.
This component primarily uses composite materials that combine carbon fiber, and its state-of-the-art technology is highly acclaimed.
