Keeping the Data Train on Track
Working on-site since the end of 2015, IGB consultants have been consolidating a large volume of data from the recently delivered metro units in order to create high-level and practical reporting tools.
Hard Knocks: Insights in Cabin Safety
Accelerated Life Testing (ALT) at IGB has proven itself as a practical way to reveal unpredicted product failures which could affect aircraft cabin safety.
Quality Time – QC on Amsterdam’s Metro Trains
IGB built its reputation for engineering knowledge and efficient certification pathways for aircraft interiors. But did you know that this expertise is also applied to Quality Control (QC) for rail and mass transit manufacturing?
The latest development at IGB has been the upgrade of the Accelerated Lifetime Testing (ALT) program to include a Programmable Logic Controller.
Traceability and Transparency
IGB helped a Dutch operator streamline their repair procedures which lead to an improved turn-around time on approvals.
Insert Challenge Here
The new airliners raise the standards in safety, reliability and interchangeability of component parts meaning increased complexity in the certification of GAINs.
A Heavy-Duty Lightweight
IGB was commissioned to analyze specialized interior parts that are exclusively used during these Ferry Flights.
Using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and fluid regions, IGB helped a major shipyard solve fatigue issues in one of their tank designs.
Certification on Track
With IGB’s help, the Protos trains can run in multiple unit operation and at the designed top speed of 160 km/h.
2008 KLM Fleet Upgrade
This refurbishment helped to increase passenger comfort and improved environmental performance of the airplanes. IGB assisted in the certification of interior monuments.
FEA: #Crunching with a Twist
Contrary to what the sales reps say, there's more involved in FEA than entering numbers in the software.
Lean on Me: Temporary A380 Handrails
IGB was commissioned to analyze specialized interior parts that are exclusively used during the Ferry Flights.
Windmilling: Extending a Dutch Tradition
For more than a decade, IGB has been involved in Airbus projects examining the impact of SEI on interiors and GAINS.
Setting New Standards
Expectations were sky high for the A380; and for its certification process. IGB met the challenge by staying one step ahead.
Pressure Going Overboard?
With years of experience in airworthiness, IGB’s experience in finite element analysis had been requested for a client active in the maritime industry.
Fire Properties: Not Too Hot to Handle
Since 2005, IGB designed tools handle the laws and regulations regarding fire properties for aircraft interior materials.
One Partner, One Standard
IGB delivers on the total certification package for 15 large monuments.
First Class Certification
IGB advises in the First Class configuration of the Airbus A330-200.
Through FEA analysis, IGB enters the railway world and verifies the design of an adapter to lift trains.
It’s not the Size that Matters
Engineering knowledge and skills can provide substantial advantages in industries other than aerospace or public transport.
VCC = PCC (Product of Close Cooperation)
IGB was asked to determine structural strength interface loads in this multi-party project.
Tested for Extreme & “Spartan” Conditions
A first for IGB in 2005: the complete certification package according to RTCA DO-160D on Alenia’s latest military transport aircraft.
A life-saving device must perform regardless of the circumstances. By means of FEA modelling, IGB analyzed the impact of heavy loads on the ship's structure.
Broad Scope, Narrow Time Frame
These seemingly conflicting ingredients required an innovative approach. Thanks to IGB's unique ModelSource software, the job was done on time, without problems, and with all incorporated design changes.
