Improving processes, ensuring greater efficiency and increasing the company’s competitiveness are the main objectives underneath OGMA’s investment of around one million Euros regarding the renovation of its Aerostructures Business machine park. This investment will continue over the next two years aiming at more automated production processes aligned with the best practices in the aviation industry.
Among the investments planned for this year are the acquisition of two more CNC HSM machines with 950mm and 3600mm, respectively, and the renovation of the Trumatic sheet metal cutting machine. This equipment upgrade will contribute to OGMA’s operational capability in different projects, including the manufacture of several components for the E-Jet E2 family, Embraer’s second-generation of commercial aircraft. OGMA facilities in Alverca will manufacture components for all of the three E2 aircraft models, namely wing boxes (E175-E2 and E190/195-E2), horizontal stabilizer and flap (E175-E2), which includes machined components, sheet metal and composites.
