Execujet MRO expands services in Malaysia
ExecuJet MRO Services has added some new capabilities to its Malaysia facility at Subang Airport including zinc-nickel and cadmium electroplating technology.
Zinc-nickel and cadmium electroplating are important technologies in the aerospace industry, according to Ivan Lim, regional vice president, Asia, ExecuJet MRO Services. The technology involves applying a thin layer of cadmium or zinc-nickel to metal airframe parts. Cadmium and zinc-nickel protect metal against surface corrosion, even in high-salt environments.
“We had been using outside vendors to provide this service to our customers, but as Malaysia’s largest business aviation MRO company, having this technology in-house allows ExecuJet to have better control over the workflow for airframe heavy maintenance checks and ultimately provide better turnaround times,” said Lim.
Besides airframe maintenance, ExecuJet is seeing higher demand for engine maintenance services too. The Malaysian facility recently performed the region’s first ever removal and installation of the engine fan case on a Dassault Falcon 7X.
Lim added: “The team are Dassault-trained engineers and technicians able to perform engine removals, engine fan case removals and installations. The team performed the task smoothly. We have invested in the necessary tooling and spare parts to perform this critical maintenance task, amongst others. We are ready to assist our Pratt & Whitney Canada PW300 engine series customers with all requests.”
