The interior workshops of Lufthansa Technik Base Maintenance in Hamburg anticipate opportunities from entering into contract  manufacturing of cabin elements for large aircraft manufacturers who are ramping up their production. The extremely flexible workshops at Lufthansa Technik can offer support through their extensive capabilities in engineering, design and production, particularly in the upcoming modification programs that run parallel to series 
production.

Arne Bruhn, Head of Interior Workshops at Lufthansa Technik Base Maintenance: “More and more suppliers are reaching the limits of  their capacities against the backdrop of the strong growth in production rates at aircraft manufacturers. We have a history of being able to help spontaneously during production peaks or problems with production management. Now we want to do so professionally. With our longtime experience as a service provider, we possess know-how that is unrivaled in the market and the greatest possible flexibility in the modification of existing aircraft cabins. It allows us to produce anything from single prototypes up to large quantities.”

In collaboration with the company’s Engineering, Original Equipment  Innovation division and VIP workshops, the more than 200 person team 
has long provided modification services for commercial airlines directly from a single source. This includes the modification of existing cabin components. For instance, all of the electric cabling can be entirely manufactured and modified, as can foils and finishes in the cabin design, to match the new livery of the airline.

At present, the teams are producing components on a large-scale for economy cabins that are now switching from central entertainment systems to individual computer performance located directly in the seats. This modification incorporates extensive structural work with complete new cabling.

Head of Interior Workshops at Lufthansa Technik Base Maintenance, Arne Bruhn, and Head of Product Engineering, Achim Babisch, will be at the Lufthansa Technik stand (Hall 6, Booth 6B60) at Aircraft Interiors Expo on April 5.
