Plymouth, Michigan – Freudenberg-NOK, a global sealing supplier to the aerospace industry, said it worked with a key manufacturer of high-lift systems to support the new Airbus A350 XWB aircraft, shown at the Paris Air Show in June.
The A350 XWB aircraft uses a mechanical high-lift system to “effectively and efficiently” assist in take-off and landing, Freudenberg-NOK said in a statement. These systems increase the surface area of the wing, allowing the aircraft to take-off and land on shorter runways and at reduced speeds.
Freudenberg-NOK said it provided aerospace O-rings, plate seals and other speciality sealing products used in components such as cabin pressure control valves and as grease and oil seals within the aircraft’s horizontal stabilizer.
“We’re proud to have been involved in this project from the initial design through the final development stage, as sealing components are an integral part of the successful function of high-lift systems,” said Vinay Nilkanth, vice president of global sales, aerospace, Freudenberg-NOK.
