Liebherr & Airbus: Landing Gear Collaboration

This post is courtesy of Liebherr.

Liebherr-Aerospace has signed a long-term collaboration agreement with Airbus to work jointly on the key design features of the landing gear that will meet Airbus’ future requirements. Through this collaboration, both parties will jointly define the key elements, and the key characteristics, that will enable optimization of the design, the production, the overall development plan, and the in-service maintenance of the landing gear systems that will be installed on Airbus’ future aircraft. Major outcomes will include specimen and validation test results and a pre-industrial demonstrator landing gear.

Liebherr will contribute to this project its extensive experience in the design, production, and services of landing gear systems for single-aisle commercial aircraft, while Airbus will bring its deep knowledge of the integration of systems and of structural parts in the aircraft. Liebherr currently supplies landing gear systems for the Airbus A220, as well as the nose landing gear for the A350.

This collaboration will serve to spread Airbus’ Digital Design, Manufacturing, and Services (DDMS) ambitions, a digital-first approach to the way aerospace products are designed, manufactured, and operated across the Airbus supply chain.
