Airbus and Japan Airlines sign their first ever order

Article published on aviatime.com Japan Airlines (JAL) has signed a purchase agreement for 31 A350 XWBs (18 A350-900s and 13 A350-1000s), plus options for a further 25 aircraft. This is JAL’s first ever order for Airbus aircraft. It is also the first order Airbus has received from Japan for the A350 XWB, confirming its continuing success with world leading airlines across the globe. JAL and Airbus aim for entry into service from 2019, with the airline’s A350 XWBs gradually replacing its ageing fleet approximately over a six year period.

Applications made possible by using Expanded Metal

In 2009, three researchers, Dimas Smith from the Universidad Francisco de Miranda, Carlos Graciano and Gabriela Martinez from the Universidad Simon Bolivar published a paper that discuss the use of expanded metal in engineering applications. While some of the applications discussed were widely known, we appreciated the fact that the paper highlighted the advancements made by the use of expanded metal in applications from several different market sectors.
