RUAG MRO International has made a sustainable investment in the future of the Oberpfaffenhofen site by commissioning a new combined painting and drying shop for aircraft components. Customers benefit from the highest quality and reduced throughput times. The aircraft painting facility in Oberpfaffenhofen near Munich has recently been equipped with a new combined painting and drying shop. After a two-week test phase in June, the aircraft painting specialists at RUAG MRO International have now started operations.

The shop consists of a paint spraying booth and a drying booth directly adjacent to it, and offers sufficient space for painting larger aircraft components such as elevators and rudders, flaps or cabin components. “The new facility allows us to carry out even the most demanding of paint jobs to the highest quality,” says Stefan Schulz, Team Leader Paint Shop. In addition to the high technical standard, the closed arrangement of the two booths is particularly advantageous since it enables a direct transition from the painting to the drying process. This eliminates the risk of contamination and helps save time: “While one component is drying in the second booth, we can get on with painting the next component in the first booth,” explains Stefan Schulz.

Customers who have their aircraft or components painted at RUAG’s one-stop shop benefit from the highest-quality workmanship on individual and very demanding paint jobs, combined with shorter throughput times which lead to an increased availability of their aircraft.

The paint shop is also state-of-the-art in terms of environmental protection, energy consumption and occupational safety, and clearly exceeds the applicable requirements in these areas.

RUAG MRO International offers specialized one-stop shop business aircraft solutions at Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany, where all required services are performed within one single downtime, suiting individual customer schedules. The comprehensive portfolio includes line, base and heavy maintenance (MRO) checks, cabin interior restyling and refurbishment, avionics and system upgrades, component services, aircraft painting, modifications, pre-purchase inspections (PPI), AOG, and support and consulting. RUAG MRO International is an Authorized Service Center for Embraer, a Service Center for Bombardier, and is certified for the Gulfstream G550.
