R & D in Aeronautics and Safety
Collaborating with our customers in innovation is what we believe to be the best way of understanding the challenges ahead and preparing to support future generations of mechanical-based products.
Acting as sole representative right from the R & D process until production start-up allows us to simplify and shorten the passage between innovation and the industrial reality of our customers, based on our desire to be a technological dynamizator as well as an innovation time to market accelerator.
The lines of development in this area are mainly focused on kinematic systems, which are demanding important advances in modelling / simulations, advanced manufacturing and systems monitoring.
DEVELOPMENT OF A GEARBOX FOR A FUTURE TURBOPROP – NEWGENPAGB
DMP has been the Core Partner within the ENGINE ITD with this project. This milestone makes DMP one of the European benchmarks in aeronautical reduction systems as well as taking charge of coordinating the project and the consortium, composed of Akira Technologies and Price Induction.
The scope of the project is the design, manufacture, and testing of several prototypes of the gearbox to be installed in a 1100 HP turboprop in the axis. This will involve the design and manufacture of an “ad-hoc” 1 Mw power testing bench. SAFRAN Helicopter Engines will oversee the activities while DMP will collaborate in the designs in conjunction with SAFRAN Transmission Systems.
DESIGN OF EXPERIMENTS TO OPTIMIZE DESIGN SOLUTIONS FOR A POWER REDUCTION GEARBOX – OPTIMIZE
This DMP-led project aims to improve the operation of aviation engine gearboxes to reduce pollution and fuel consumption, as well as to lower maintenance costs. The aim of the OPTIMIZE project is to find out the effects of the manufacturing tolerances of the gears on their efficiency during operation in these gearboxes.
Involves the participation of IK4-TEKNIKER and the European Commission.
MORE ELECTRICAL, SAFER AND RECONFIGURABLE SYSTEMS ORIENTED TO A MORE EFFICIENT AIRPLANE, REDUCING THE PILOT’S LOAD– SELENA – IDI-20150631
This project, led by CESA and situated within the CIEN Program, involved the development by DMP of new critical technologies and methodologies to ensure that the reduction systems are more reliable (redundant lubrication systems), safer (monitoring vibrations and acoustic signals caused by possible component anomalies), more efficient (using advanced design of gear contacts to anticipate shaft misalignment) and durable (less wear and less vibration).
The Consortium is composed of the following members: CESA, DMP, AIRBUS DEFENSE AND SPACE, AIRBUS OPERATIONS, ORBITAL, RAMEM, and TEMAI ENGINEERS
DEVELOPMENT OF FLEXIBLE AND ADVANCED MANUFACTURING PROCESSES FOR RESPONSIBILITY AND HIGHLY-PERFORMING GEARS– ENNGRANA – PCT-2011-0711-020000
This project involved DMP being trained in the manufacture of high performance gears for the aeronautical sector. The support of the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness MINECO, through the project ENNGRANA of the national INNPACTO 2011 programme, allowed us to advance our design and integration capacity and implement this initiative in the international market.
This involved the collaboration of one technology centre, CIDETEC, and two universities; UPV / EHU [The University of the Basque Country] and the University of Cartagena
