In good health

We reached the middle of the year and it’s time to take stock of the path of the Andalusian aerospace sector, just after the celebration a few weeks ago of the largest business event in the industry in our country, the Aerospace & Defense Meetings 2018. An event that once again made Seville the epicenter of national and international aerospace industry, attended by the main actors of the sector, both the large tractors as Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer, as the main contractors and national and international Tier 1 , with, whom the attending companies could maintain business contacts and explore ways of collaboration or contracts for the future.

The numbers of this fourth edition of ADM Sevilla showed that it is a fully consolidated event, and that, in part, reflect the good health of the aerospace industry in Spain and Andalusia: more than 1,100 professionals from 350 companies from 28 countries attended the fair. In the country, more than 8,000 business meetings were held among the attendees, and some 70 companies and technological infrastructures were visited. In CATEC we witnessed this, contributing to strengthen the ties of technological development that our community has in some of the areas that are called to lead the future of the sector, such as advanced robotics or Industry 4.0.

Beyond these quantitative figures it also should be noted the announcement by the President of Andalusia, Susana Diaz, on the development and implementation in the short term of the new Strategic Plan for the aerospace sector. It will focus on aspects such as innovation, development, research, talent and the competitiveness and productivity of our industry. This new plan it will allow us to take a new leap and face the great challenges of the sector in a global context, that is always difficult and that can generate uncertainties.

After ADM Sevilla, the Andalusian industry is reinforced and sets course for new markets to continue promoting its internationalization, competitiveness and know-how in the sector. The next stop is the Farnborough fair, where I am convinced that our companies will continue advancing in that goal to position and reaffirm ourselves in the top positions of the global aerospace industry.

Successful completion of the FEDER Innterconecta CEMTAURO project
This ambitious project, which was approved in the call for applications in 2015, comes to an end after almost three years of work, and after reaching the objectives set initially. CEMTAURO has the participation of Aernnova Andalucia, as leader of the consortium, in addition to Sofitec and Airgrup, companies with a significant presence in the aeronautical sector, both regionally and nationally. FADA-CATEC, who has participated as a research organization, has worked closely with the consortium companies in the implementation of activities developed in the project.

The main activities of CEMTAURO have been: flexible manufacturing cells for drilling and aeronautical sealing operations; Automation of cutting and welding processes in aeronautical conduits for the transport of fluids; and finally, assistance to the operator in the assurance of aeronautical processes.

We have reached remarkable results following the development and validation of the technologies used in the project, mainly related to automation of processes in the aeronautical sector.

The Feder Innterconecta CEMTAURO Project has been funded by the Center for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI) and supported by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities.
