MEDELLÍN - 25th September 2014, Industrial Aeronáutica S.A. (Indaer) - Colombian aerospace leader relies on Solid Edge to venture into new design and manufacturing territory. The company holds a strong market niche in three operating segments: technical support, repairs and research, and development for the ATR 42, ATR 72 and Beechcraft Super King Air 350 aircraft.
Venturing into new territory, the company is implementing the design and mass production of the first Colombian-built airplane, the Mylius MY-103-200 Mistral. The design project was first started in Germany using another application. However, Indaer is now developing the product entirely with Solid Edge® software from product lifecycle management (PLM) specialist Siemens PLM Software. Indaer is using Solid Edge with synchronous technology to take advantage of all previous data and engineering changes.
“Solid Edge makes it possible to quickly interpret the complex data migrated from other design software and makes it possible to perform the complete development of the design project,” says Daniel Esteban Restrepo, director of Technology and Development of New Business. “We worked 4,000 engineering hours in 2013 and compared the results from previous years, and we had produced over 40 percent more by using Solid Edge.”
Indaer was created in 2002 as a successor to ACES, a South American regional airline with a long and successful history of Airbus, Boeing and ATR operations. As a result of this, Indaer has a long technical and commercial relationship with ATR and Airbus.
Today Indaer employs 100 full-time engineers, technicians and systems analysts who provide start-up and lease transition assistance; aviation technical and advisory services in the areas of aircraft and engine asset management and regulations; aircraft records services; technical training; maintenance planning and oversight; in-service engineering; and field support for owners and lessors of Boeing, Airbus, Embraer, ATR and Bombardier aircraft.
Serving over 35 customers in all continents, Indaer is a partner to a range of strategic companies in the aerospace sector, from the world’s largest OEMs and operators to top aircraft leasing companies.
Indaer also provides ATR 4I2/72 and Beechcraft King Air heavy maintenance services at its facilities in Medellin-Colombia and is currently adding more capabilities and certifications.
