Mecachrome Canada Engineering Office

Located in the heart of the Mirabel Canada manufacturing facility, the Mecachrome Aerostructure Design Office offers full engineering services to the aerospace industry.
  • Prototype - Pre-Study
  • Concept - Studies - Calculations
  • Design & Build
  • Optimization: Weight Saving, Nesting, Design to Cost
  • Production support
These services are realized in the form of technical assistance or packages.

Design and build expertise is reinforced by our proximity to our production; that allows us to:

  • Reduce costs / Lead time
  • Minimize Iterations Design / Analysis / Industrialization
  • Be more reactive to change requests
  • Control risks

Optimization philosophy

How :
  1. Fast diagnosis of the current structure by Global & Detailed FEM (Simultaneously accounting for Static / Buckling / Fatigue effects)
  2. Interactive Workshop around the diagnosis with OEM’s Engineering and Methods groups to identify weight and cost saving design opportunities (design for manufacturing);
 

     3.  Assess the design opportunities and confirm the design modifications;
     4.  Detail planning and execution of the design activities for the selected Cost/Weight saving opportunities


The tools:
  1. Customized FEM pre-post;
  2. NASTRAN solver;
  3. Fully automated post-processing;
  4. Multi-criteria optimization;
        . Static / Buckling / Fatigue
  5. Custom Tools for quick Trade Off studies

Avantages:
  1. Adapted to client processes and tools
  2. Fast design validation thanks to our physical Integration into the manufacturing facility (Design to Cost)
  3. Can be used in Preliminary or Detail Design Phase
  4. Easily certifiable (no black box)
